They were asking each other questions and answering in English and in the Greek language.
We laminated pictures and wrote the pronunciation and spelling of the words in each Greek word. The students had to place the laminated words in the correct picture. The students were divided into groups, read each word, understood its interpretation, and placed it in a certain period of time in the correct picture.
