(e) Describe the content of each activity: topic, type, language level,

interface, navigation, user friendliness, etc.

(f) Evaluate each activity in terms of its suitability to

be used in a language class.



a. A very interesting activity as it practices vocabulary and

writing at the same time. A very smart way of practicing writing.

When students feel that they are playing a game, they get more

motivated especially when it is so funny. It is a simple task that all

students can participate. Even students that are shy want to join in.

I have used a similar activity with my class and the results were

fantastic. All students participated even those who were shy.

A funny activity like this one creates a more comfortable environment

for students because they do not feel that other students will make fun

of them. I would definitely use this activity again with my students.

b. This kind of activity although is useful I would never use

it in class. This activity is not presented in a way that it would

get students involved. I would adapt the idea and the material

from this activity and present it in a more attractive way.

However, the aim of this activity is beneficial because it helps

students not only to produce correct grammatical structures but

also to identify and correct. It is very important to identify and

correct your own mistakes.
