The Start of the New Generation

The final whistle last night tasted so sweet; the hoodoo was finally broken. Arsenal away is no longer officially a jinx. The new generation has taken a big step forward; a step towards the crown. Although they needed Arsenal to become a man less before finally broken them down, it was a win nevertheless, because a football match involves the elements of surprise, determination, and of course, luck. Lots of it. Manchester United has been dominating the league using luck as their twelfth man. And what's more, there is still a certain Steven Gerrard to come forward. The captain must be itching to play his part in this new look squad (picture below).

Here are the pictures of last night's victory (taken from LFC official site):

Writing Journal

I've asked my pupils to write journals whilst implementing the grammatical items in the process. They don't have to write much, only 5 sentences are sufficient. However, the sentences must contain all the grammatical items stated. For example,

Write a journal consists of 5 sentences using the Simple Past Tense on what you did during the holidays. You must also include 10 adjectives and 5 adverbs.

It surely save me my time of correcting lots of lengthy essays with lots of grammatical mistakes. This way, I only focused on specific mistakes, and I am sure the pupils will learn aplenty.

Of course, you have to teach them the grammatical items first.

What do you think?


I just found a very good writing from one of my pupils:

Last breezy Sunday morning, as I walked gracefully to the beautiful sea, I saw a very cute dolphin swimming with the other dolphins. It made me feel good and more in peace. Sometimes, I felt like swimming with them in that blue and cold water. However, something stopped me and it was my handsome father who appeared calmly from the big green bushes. I was shocked as he told me that my sick great grandfather was dying and had to be sent to the nearest hospital immediately.
