How many times do you check your phone every day?  Do you panic if you don't have your phone to hand? You might just be suffering from nomophobia!

AS or A level students might just relate to this article about addiction to mobile phones from the site Así puedes quitarte tu adicción al móvil.

Teaching ideas

Start by asking students to estimate how many times they check their phone every day. What do they think the average might be for this? Reveal the answer (150 times a day) and discuss!

Read the introductory two paragraphs to the article as a class and then give each student or pair one of the remaining five paragrahs to read and summarise.
