1975. A worksheet you can use

Here is a worksheet I'd like to utilize in my classes with adults. You can use it, change something, copy, print, steal... Sorry for likely formatting bugs. The picture is from 2001 Space Odyssey  (1968), as you may know well.

My name is Ann. We went to the airport to pick up Suzanne: she would stay with us in our house of Barcelona. When we arrived at the airport of El Prat, we started to find her. She would dress in jeans and in a red blouse. I accompanied my father because she is one of my best friends. I know her well, obviously. However nearly every girl looked like her or at least I thought so. She would stay in our house for a fortnight. We would go horseback riding to the countryside. This countryside is all green, with fences made of stones. We together would have a nice fortnight I thought. We met in Barcelona, in a Spanish course. My father was one of the teachers. The course was a bit hard – anyway we learned a lot of Spanish. My family comes from the area of Brighton and we’re English.
