Here is an activity I tried a couple of times with my teenage students. I decided to combine the test-teach-test approach with a fairly new feature of Quizlet which is Quizlet live. My students played a vital role in shaping this activity and so did my friend, Łukasz Knap who helped work out the technical kinks.
This short activity shows how to use different viral posts to revise grammar structures. I have tried it with students around B2 and C1 level, during both individual and group lessons.
