  1. Thanks so much for creating these worksheets to go along with the TED talks! I love the fact that the TED site has subtitles and transcripts, but worksheets were the one thing missing for a complete lesson, so thank you so much for the time and effort put in - they are great! I plan to use this one in a one-to-one lesson tomorrow. Just one request - could you include an answer key with your worksheets? Thanks!
