Choose an interesting or amusing passage, with grammar and vocabulary items that your students are quite familiar with. Some unknown vocabulary is actually good, as they need to try to make sense of the ‘whole’ meaning.Read the passage out at normal speed twice. The first time students just listen, the second time they can make notes.In pairs or small groups, students have to share what they remember and attempt to write a version of the passage that remains true to the original’s meaning and has correct grammar, but does not have to be exactly the same.

I get students to write their versions on OHTs and we all look at them together and decide if they are similar in meaning to the original and if we think the grammar is right. This is a passage I use with teenagers and adults around FCE level. Teach English Writing: Videos.

The downloadable resources can be found here This should be enough for even the most unimaginative child to create at least one or two stories! How to use the charts. 1) Write down any two figure number (example: 58) 2) Using the first chart (Characters), find the square which is 5 across and 8 down, and write down the word/phrase in this square (example: the prince of the Gypsies). 3) Choose two figure numbers for the other three charts, and find the appropriate squares (example: "an attic in an old house", "a death trap", and "a tape recording"). 4) Weave a story around those four ingredients.
