Exploiting an authentic text - Spanish - pilot stuck in lavatory leads to terrorist fears

These resources are based on an article from BBC Mundo about the problems caused when a pilot got stuck in the lavatory while his plane was coming in to land...

There are 11 pdf files in all, all printed using dopdf - http://www.dopdf.com

The pdfs are based on a Mix and Gap file containing the text of the article, which is also included (mtx3). This file provides a wide variety of interactive exercises for use with PCs or with an interactive whiteboard. It requires TaskMagic3. If you haven't got TaskMagic3, you can download a 30-day trial from the TaskMagic website (doesn't require registration or anything - just download and install it).

The screenshot shows the student front page for the file in TaskMagicPlay. In TaskMagic, each of the little thumbnails links to a different interactive exercise.

It takes a matter of minutes to convert any news article like this one into a load of worksheets and interactive resources which recycle the same content in lots of different ways.
