Diverse tasks and text types
Students engaged in various types of readings, such as narratives, research reports, and historical texts.
Advanced vocabulary and grammar
Learners also mastered advanced vocabulary to be able to discuss those topics fluently. Regarding grammar, students learned and refreshed compound words, prefixes and suffixes, adjectives and adverbs, subject predicate construction, indefinite pronouns, and action verbs.
Challenging writing tasks
They also engaged in diverse types of writing genres and modes, such as a problem-solution essay, a collaborative research report, a modern fairy-tale, and a speech about their dreams following Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech.
Apart from performance in the tasks mentioned above, students also completed a pre-test and unit progress tests with the teacher's feedback. Students celebrated their achievements in the course, but also realized that language learning is a journey that requires commitment and hard work.
