English City Writing Contest

One of our students came to me a few years ago with a great idea – a writing contest. This is a great way to improve your writing and get critical feedback that can help you improve.

Many of you have been writing great articles for the Blog with help from Learn It Town teachers and other students have really enjoyed your work !

Here are the rules:

  • Below there is a list of 50 words, you must look up their meanings.

  • Students must write a fictional story, news style report or discursive essay using at least thirty words in the list.

  • Points will be given for originality, style, grammar and structure.

  • The winner’s profile will be featured on the new Languagelab website and also displayed all over English City.

  • Everyone who enters will be given detailed feedback and those who choose to share their feedback with the group will be posted on the blog for all students to benefit from.
