Critical Reading ClubUnlimited Plan

This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.


In the warm-up task, students look at a list of words and need to choose those that they associate most with travelling. Then, students read seven sentences with some bolded words (e.g. fatigue, tranquillity, sublime, intangible). They decide which words are in the correct sentences and replace the incorrect words with those from other sentences. Students also choose three of the statements and comment on them. They need to consider trends, people they know and their experience. Next, students discuss some questions about the article they read at home and about the benefits of travelling. Finally, they look at different ways of travelling (e.g. voluntourism, ecotourism, dark tourism) and explain what they might be about. They also say what the unique benefit of each way might be and share any experiences they have with these types of travelling.

    Hi there!
    Thank you for yet another amazing lesson.
    I was wondering if you perhaps meant “indulgent” in sentence d, task 2?

      Hi Veronika! The word is ‘indulge’ and it needs to be moved from d) to f): ‘Travelling only makes sense if you indulge in your favourite activities…’

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
