Students read a letter from Anna to her sister Claudia, who is studying in Berlin. Claudia is not able to see her family on Thanksgiving, so Anna sends her a letter. There are two exercises for reading comprehension: (I.) circle the correct answer and (II.) "true" or "false". Here, students have to find the correct answer from the text. Students can work individually or with a partner. It is also a good reading-out-loud activity. The preview only shows part of the letter. The original is one page long.
- text format: informal letter
- present perfect tense with "haben" and "sein"
