The Tallest Man, interview by Ninon

There is no better resource for learning superlative adjectives than the Guinness World Records. This time, we started with an article about the tallest man in the world, watched a film about him, brainstormed ideas what is more challenging and what is easier for him to do in his daily life. Our objective was to interview him, so we prepared questions that we can ask from him. Thanks to Skype, we could set up an interview with him and he was very kind to accept our invitation. You can listen to this interview below. 

The exercise focused on grammar (superlative adjectives), reading comprehension, question formation, interviewing.
