This one focusing on writing using the resources available at the same previous website from the British council.
The website suggests many good writing essays.
Try to complete this one. I know it looks boring (who wants to read a web tool review? :D) but I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. It is well-written, gives many good tips for writing, and you can also take a look at the tool itself! :) You can also get inspired and write one too about another different web tool! You choose! Do the tasks as well!
I have been in love with the web tool Mentimeter since I was in Birmingham at Newman University for International Staff Week. Do you know it? And I still like Wordle! Do you know word clouds, aka visual summaries?
Choose another topic to write about from the British Council page! And share your experience / thoughts. Would you recommend it?
Did you enjoy them? Did you find them easy or challenging to understand?
Then, choose another one to read and then share your thoughts on it with us. Remember to summarise it first very quickly (title, main topic, reason for choosing it) and then your thoughts on it.
Another challenge using this same website. It is a grammar challenge. Click here to complete the level test. I think it is a very interesting exercise because besides choosing the answer you need to think to what extent you are sure or not of your answer. In my opinion, the self-assessment part is very relevant, namely for us, teachers. Do you agree?
Do the test first and and then share your experience!
During this first module I encourage you to improve your level of English. Be aware of your weaknesses and try to transform them into strengths.
Complete this task for example to see if you need grammar revisions. And then this one. Explore the website, challenge yourself and follow your own needs. If you need help or have questions, share them here in the comment section and / or email me.
Don't feel ashamed of not knowing everything, nobody does! And you are doing something about it, aren't you? So, be proud and keep going!
How often do you write? What do you write? Any therapeutic or/and creative writing? How do you feel when writing?
You may take a look at your list on writing from previous Challenge.
I used to write a lot when I was younger, mostly my diary/ journal, and I still write when I am experiencing a challenging moment. It helps me expose my feelings, free my thinking and overcome whatever I am going through.
Please share your thoughts in the comment section and interact with each other in a respecful and curious manner.
Have you ever heard about the Rights of the Reader by Daniel Pennac (Comme un roman)?
It is an amazing book. I find his rights of the Reader truly provocative and inspiring!
Please read the first pages available online as pdf of the following book. It is in www.walker.co.uk website. You can google it or just go to our Moodle page.
Please feel free to skim (you know skimming right? from our previous challenge), so feel free to skim through the foreword by Quentin Blake. Then "read" carefully the drawings and the first pages of the book (the whole pdf itself, in fact).
How do you feel?
