dc.description.abstractIn this packet you will find stories, vocabulary lessons, grammar lessons, and writing assignments. We suggest that you work on one unit at a time. First, read the example stories. If possible, talk about the stories with someone else who is doing this packet. What did you like in the story? What was hard to understand? Then read the language lessons and do the practice exercises (NOTE: An Answer Key for all practice exercises is at the end of the packet). If you are confused, find someone who knows English and ask them about it. Finally, work on writing your own story in English. The stories you read can be examples for your writing. You will learn more if you write a story yourself! This material was developed for a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) created by the University of Oregon in 2016. It is designed for intermediate-level English language learners to improve their reading and writing skills. Students can use the materials independently, or teachers can use this packet in their classes. We have included the stories we wrote for the MOOC, as well as some excellent stories written by MOOC participants. The grammar lessons focus on the use of past tense forms and correct sentence structure. The vocabulary lessons focus on skills and important words for storytelling. The writing lessons help language learners through the steps of creating a story in English. We hope you will enjoy telling your story in English.en_US
