English Around the Corner - Cartoon Characters (October)
One of the ways that the English Around the Corner program tries to stimulate our students is by choosing interesting topics that might not appear in their textbooks, but are relevant to their every day lives. Our October theme, Cartoon Characters, turned out to be one of the most popular themes we have ever chosen.
Whether reading comic books or watching cartoons on TV or YouTube, many of our students find a lot of enjoyment from these characters, and we enjoyed discussing their personalities, characteristics and abilities. Students volunteered to submit pictures and information of their favourite characters and also shared why they liked these characters. The theme was interesting, relevant and authentic in that each student was able to identify their favourites and remember specific episodes and storylines.
