Curso de herramientas digitales. Genitive 's - Grammar rules

Esta infografía esta diseñada para los alumnos de nivel básico que están empezando a aprender el genitivo. Nunca había usado una infografía anteriormente y creo que es una herramienta muy útil, y creo que se le puede sacar mucho juego a la hora de crear pequeñas presentaciones or resúmenes. Al poder usarse imágenes y colores en una combinación como si fuera un póster, la información resulta atractiva y para alumnos muy visuales puede ser una gran ayuda.
