Need a quick reading activity/assessment for students on the topic of countries/nationalities? Here are 6 reading passages (some easier to read than others) about people from different cultures talking about their home countries, past times, cuisine, sport, etc. You could print all of these out and conduct a literacy center, or give them as a package to students to read. A set of 6-7 comprehension questions follow each passage. Questions are in English and to be answered in English.
