PET Work - Hobbies and Leisure

Our Full-Time PET students are currently studying the topic of Hobbies and Leisure.

We have had some excellent discussions in class about the student's favourite passtimes and it has been enjoyable to hear about what the students are fond of and what interests they share.

Yesterday, they completed an activity in which they were asked to write about themselves and their hobbies for a magazine feature to find a pen-pal.  Here are a couple of great pieces written by the students:

Hi!  I'm Andrea and I'm 15 years old.  I'm a student and I live in Modica.  I'm keen on sport and I love football and karate but I don't enjoy playing golf.

Hi!  I'm Gabriele and I'm 15.  I love studying English and History.  I'm good at playing computer games but my favourite hobby is going to the swimming pool.  

While concentrating on this topic, the students have reviewed grammar, learned new vocabulary and used all the key skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing.  It has been an interesting focus topic for the group and all students are engaging well in the new school year, showing a developed maturity and understanding of the language.

  1. Thank you for any other great article. The place else may just anybody get that kind of
    information in such a perfect method of writing? I've a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such

  2. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I'd certainly appreciate it.
