BRIEF OUTLINE:This activity is to help you explain to your students how to write an email in English.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Since this is a writing plus, the example handout is only intended to help your students understand how to write an e-mail. The other handout gives them some cultural background about the differences in electronic communication between Japan and English speaking countries.
  2. The activity is simple, hand out out both worksheets to each student, go over each one to make sure the students understand, then let them loose to write an email.

  

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Writing is often difficult for students, so encourage and help them to formulate correct sentences.
  • If you are able to use the computer room for this activity, it gives the students an opportunity to actually type in English on a computer and get a real feel for what the lesson is trying to make them understand.
  • This activity gives them some cultural background about the differences in e-moji (letters) that are used to communicate electronically in English.
