A narrative text (class assignment)

Choose one of the following options:

  1. An embarrasing experience. (workbook page 17)
  2. Write a story with the title: "The time we first met".  (workbook page 98)
  3. Write about something interesting that you did in you free time recently.  (students's book page 26)
  4. Narrate a story beginning: "I was meeting Amanda/Bruno in Plaça Catalunya but she never appeared. ......."

Tips for writing narratives:
  • Use different verbal tenses   (past simple, past continuous, past perfect) 
  • Use time expressions   (while, until, by the time, as soon as, ......)
  • Use adverbs and adjectives   (amazingly, sadly, luckily,....)
  • Describe atmosphere and feelings as well as what happened.   (thrilled, sympathetic, ....)

Happy writing!!
