Steven's Personal Information Video Activity

A video activity

Hice este actividad hace 12 años en 2007. Desde entonces los navegadores han cambiado y el formato de video que hice ya no funciona en Explorador de Internet de Microsoft, así qué he hecho algunas modificaciones para actualizarlo (con el texto y preguntas originales) para que siga funcionando. Quizas puedas ver el video si tienes Google Chrome. De todas formas, ahora hay grabaciones para sustituirlas.
