writing

It is important for learners to know how to write about and verbally explain a process. Have your learner think of something he or she knows how to do that doesn't require a lot of time or materials (example: Origami, darning a sock, doing a card trick). Talk about the process to help generate the necessary vocabulary and grammatical structures, then ask them to write the process for homework.
