| | books to help teens improve their writing skills
Can anyone suggest materials (mainly books) for intermediate level teen students to help improve their writing skills in English?
Some of my students will be sitting the PET exam, soon and they're a bit lacking in the writing department. What worries me is the story writing section, as my coursebook hardly provides any examples on that
The class needs to work on paragraph division and sentence structure. They're Italian and tend to write very long and complex sentences, the opposite of what you should do in English.
They should read more, but they are on the go all day and don't have time.
Besides manuals, do you have any tips or activities to share on helping students improve their written English?
Thank you in advance
