City webquests

A webquest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the internet.

These webquests are designed to be interesting and challenging. Students will encounter language that is above their level but the aim is to foster a sense of achievement, as they will manage to find most of the answers by browsing.

The skills which are required involve reading and listening principally, there are also communicative speaking exercises. Teachers will notice that the exercises we have written can easily be expanded upon. We mean these webquests to be a starting point for teachers.

Due to the nature of the web, sites are constantly changing. We have chosen permanent areas within sites but teachers should check the links. Please write to the web editor if you find any broken links.
