  • Brilliant! I've been working on air pollution in cities with my students and this activity is an ideal way to test their understanding of the subject and their knowledge of the vocabulary and expressions we've covered.

  • Hi, the presentation is not working either on my computer: like Martina, "I can only see the "loading" bar on the slide where the animation should appear". Can I gat any help?
    Thx,
    Helene

  • Hi Senta,

    Did you try the instructions written below your first comment? That should start the animation up.

  • Indeed, the animation doesn't work on my computer as well.
    And this has been the case for a long time by now. Why can't the problem be mended?
    Kind regards
