Speak n Bubble


My comic strip idea is a very simple one really but always creates great interest among students.

The concept behind 'comic strips' is to get students to use their vocabulary knowledge and practice writing English at the same time as using their imagination.

Doing an exercise like this makes ESL students practice two important areas of learning English in an interesting way.

Just simply ask your students to fill in the conversation in the speech bubbles. They can write in anything that they think is going on.

When everyone has filled in their 'imagined conversation' get them to explain their comic strip to the rest of the class. This is bringing in yet another important area of learning English; practicing speech.

There is a prepared blank comic strip page that you can just print off and use to photocopy and use as a classroom handout.

When you give your students freedom of mind you get better results!
