ESL Group Story Writing Class 28th July 2011
In our Story Writing Class we all practise our written English skills as a group and form a story through taking turns in sentence writing. Sometimes it makes sense and sometimes not but always the class comes up with something new and interesting. Our class was given homework to read the story and compare the finished story with their original typed sentences from class. This was to show the little changes in grammar and context and help all to understand better construction. They are usually only very small changes but it helps to see where we can all improve. This is all their work showcased as it was intended. Another fun offering! :) I did use UK spelling here for corrections but it makes no difference if one uses U.K. or U.S. types.
The White Stop
"It's been raining cats and dogs all day today" said the old lady to another man standing next to her. The man looked at her with eyes wide open and said "What do you mean?" The lady laughed, her dark eyes sparkled as tiny rain drops ran down her face. "Oh dear, I'm sorry. That just means it's been raining very hard. There's lot of silly sayings in my language. "Well I'm glad bus stop still mean the bus stops here" said the man.
"I'm waiting for the bus to hell. Do you want to come with me, old lady? We'll meet demons and monsters and we'll have to fight them. I can see the lights approaching. What do you say?"
The old woman with a wide smile on her face took her bag and showed a present. "Merry Christmas!" she added "I don´t think demons are able to fight at Christmas."
