Can I use 'KLAR' in primary schools?      top

This website www.klar.co.uk is aimed at KS3 and KS4 students. However, general topics like 'pets' or 'hobbies' can be used by anyone!

 

 

What is the best way to use 'KLAR!' ?     top

New users to the site are advised to work through the topic areas in a chronological order.

If you are using the site for revision and you are quite familiar with the vocabulary and grammar points, you might just want to pick and choose at random.

 

 

 

Do you cater for all four skill areas?      top

Yes. 'KLAR!' aims to offer a broad variety of EXERCISES, GAMES and SLIDESHOWS to cover all four language skills. In KS4 listening and reading exercises are differentiated into foundation and higher tasks. The symbols that are used throughout the website are as follows:


                        
listening    reading   speaking    writing


 

 

Where would you use 'KLAR!'?     top

Most exercises are designed to be used in the classroom with an interactive whiteboard or for individual work in a computer suite or at home.

 

 

How do you navigate between topics?      top

Moving between topic areas: Just click on the new topic displayed in the top frame.
Going back home: Alternatively, you can use the 'home' button in the form of our Bavarian friend which appears on every page and will always take you back to the homepage.
