ESL Writing – A Surprising Day

In previous classes, students finished several writing exercises about a person’s daily life experience and neighbourhoods. These writing exercises use real life experience to help shape and guide the student’s descriptive writing.

This assignment asks students to blend their daily life experience with a creative surprise.
