Once Upon a Time in America

The following set of activities was designed for my intermediate level students at E.O.I. Aviles. While some of the tasks are quite easy, others are more challenging. As all of you have guessed by now, they are dedicated to the U.S.A. You can improve your English as well as your knowledge of the States at the same time.
Come on! Have a go! You don´t have to do all the exercises or follow a fixed order, you can pick up the ones you feel like doing from the index. I encourage you to try and do all of them, tho

and start a journey to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean!
