A couple of days ago I posted about a neat new site called CloZure. It lets you create short clozes (fill-in-the-gap) exercises in seconds from Wikipedia articles. Students can then complete the clozes online, or you can print them out.

I wrote to Peter Shanks, the site’s creator, and asked him if there was any way he could include articles from the Simple English Wikipedia — that would make the service accessible to Beginning and Early Intermediate English Language Learners.

Well, in one day he was able to do it! There are far fewer Simple English articles than regular Wikipedia. However, I was able to find very useful ones when I searched the site.

Thanks, Peter!
