On this page you can see some work done by my class of Pre-Intermediate teenagers. Following a book called Hotliners we came across a really boring "project" whereby they had to imagine they were writing to a friend who'd moved to another country so instead we livened it up by saying we were going to introduce the class to the Internet world - you should have seen the difference in motivation once they realised they were going to have their photo online! 

Below then is the photo follwed by introductory writing they did in groups. I have copied it up just as they wrote it, mistakes intact, because the focus of the activity was for them to produce something themselves not on error correction & grammatical accuracy. 

From left to right: Cristina, Judit, Mireia, Elena, Ana, David, Eva, Joan Antoni and Marina.
