We started our two‐week writing workshops for both our basic and pre‐intermediate classes yesterday. It was quite a busy day!
For our basic courses, students are learning how to write a paragraph about an important day in their lives. In this paragraph, they have to use "listing" structure, which means they have to explain the events of their important day in chronological order. Students brainstormed ideas to write about, such as their grade 12 graduation, a surprise birthday party, and even their first day at BEA.
For our pre‐intermediate course, students are writing a paragraph about the characteristics and abilities they need for a job. They also have to use "listing" structure, but will focus more on the use of transitions, such as "first", "second", "in addition", and "finally" to explain the features of their chosen professions. Students have chosen their topics, such as "doctor", "journalist", and "electrician". They all have such high hopes for their future.
In today's lessons, we'll be learning how to organize ideas using paragraph structure.
