Today we’re talking about love in English. Cupid beware!

My one year wedding anniversary is tomorrow, and I was thinking about my own love story with my lovely wife. And what I am going to do tomorrow to surprise her…

Thinking about my own love story got me thinking about all the little elements that go into a good one. So I made a list of the elements that are a part of mine and used them in a little writing activity for my students. In this activity, three teams, or three students, will choose a type of love story to write from the list on the left and then make their way through the board using the elements to write their love story. This could also be a speaking activity where each member of the team must take the mantle of the story from his predecessor and continue.

My love story is on this board game (hint: starts with “Iceland”), but I hope your students can make some really fun stories, too!

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

      We’d love to read some examples of love stories written by your students someday 🙂
