A word processing activity which involves typing and formatting and also contains useful information.

The idea is that the learners digest the text that they are working with and learn from it. I would put it at about level E2/3.

This is a great session starter. Students will work on their sentence construction and vocabulary with a card game that allows them to experiment with word order and effective word choice. Students have to put the words into a sensible order, even if the subject of their film is far from sensible.

In this game, students compete to make the scariest film title, or to sabotage other people’s film titles. It is a light hearted and fun game. The film titles created can also become writing prompts.
