I like the resource - just on Grid 2 Wand should read Art I think.

Thanks for pointing this out Annika. The cards in both interactive activities have now been shuffled.

This is a great idea - only problem is that in both interactive activities cognates and false friends are not mixed up. Shame!

Great idea to mix cognates and false friends in the same activity. This will really test pupil knowledge of false friends.
