French AS/A2 resources: "Interdisez les bouteilles !"

The resources in this post are based on a French text about the environment suitable for AS/A2 - on a US town's decision to ban the sale of bottles of water smaller than 1 litre. Here's the original article:

There are 13 pdf files in all, all printed using dopdf -

The pdfs are based on 2 Mix and Gap files, both containing the text of the article, which are also included (mtx3). (The only difference between the two is that the one with the number 2 has different gap-fill and long-gaps exercises - which were used to print the pdf files with the number 2 at the end). These files provide access to a wide variety of interactive exercises for use with PCs or with an interactive whiteboard. They require 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).

If you've previously trialled TM3 and would like to trial it again, that's now possible by arrangement. Also, if you'd like to arrange a longer trial period, that's now possible too. See the information at the bottom of the page at
