Part of his time here is to do lessons in learning how to speak English. Neither of us are particularly happy with the lessons provided so I'm attempting to supplement those lessons. My problem is I don't know how. I don't quite get how to teach conversational English to a young man who knows a great deal, but is missing some of the finer aspects.
So I was searching through some of my PDF's that I've collected over the last couple of years for teaching the lad and came up with a story for teaching action words.
I thought, why not change it into a fill in the blank.
It's simple, it's meant for children as opposed to teens but it might provide some challenge and perhaps laughter while learning. I don't know.
Anyways, here's what I came up with I can't link to a PDF until I upgrade this site so you'll have to make do with my copy and paste jobbie. :)
