  • Hi, are the questions in the warmer supposed to be general knowledge? The answers are not in the text.

  • Hello Gail,
    Thank you for your comment.
    Yes, the questions in the warmer introduce the topic of the lesson and article by checking what the students may already know about Mount Everest.
    Apologies if it wasn't clear enough.

    Kind regard,
    The onestopenglish team
