THESE ARE INDEED WONDERFUL WORKSHEETS QUITE HELPFUL FOR STUDENTS WHO STRUGGLE TO WRITE ABOUT THE THESE TOPICS. tHE PICTURES ACTUALLY MAKE THE ACTIVITY MORE ENJOYABLE AND INTERESTING.

Comments:
What beautiful resources! It's so rare in the poor world to get such attractive EFL-style resources!
Suggestions:
Echoing what another reviewer has said, I agree the 'describing place' question is not really relevant........ And of course filling in a form (Trinity Task 1) isn't really appropriate to a comic format. However, what about present simple questions? These seem to have become a standard feature of Task 1 E1 writing exam, and could be done as some nice short dialogues in comic style.
Just an idea!
Keep up the good work, thanks.

Contributor's response:
Cheers, David - I'm having fun making the comics. Yes, dialogues are a very good idea - watch this space and keep the suggestions coming! Frances

Reviewer: Marie Buckley (Manchester)

Situation:
Teaching E1 learners on ESOL Cambridge writing course
Comments:
I think the visual presentation is great. A good resource to draw discussion and vocabulary. My only problem is that the text is all in uppercase which means I would not use this in my classes unless I changed it appropriately as it may confuse students.
Suggestions:
Change from uppercase to mixed case text.
Contributor's response:
Thanks for your comments, Marie. There's a reason for my use of uppercase: if you take a look at "Sysay's Story" you'll see that the appearance of the lower case font is rather poor - e.g. the o's look like a's, especially so in print-outs. Hence my decision to stick to capitals. That said, I've only tried Comic Sans so far and maybe other fonts have a cleaner appearance - I'll experiment. Frances

E1/E2/E3 writing - comic model answers - 14/04/2010 12:55:51
Reviewer: Judith Brown (Yorkshire)

Situation:
ESOL E1/ E3
Comments:
The first example, describing your town, is an E2 question, not E1!
I thought the model answers were nicely presented in comic format, and make a refreshing change ...
Thanks

Contributor's response:
Hi Judith - Yes, describing your town is definitely E2 - I got confused during the uploading process! I have yet to try these comics with my students but am hoping the visual element will help them visualise their own answers - and not, as so often happens, simply regurgitate the model text...
