Adjectives with ‘ed’ and ‘ing’ endings - March 10th 2011

March 10th 2011

The mixed group lesson was based on adjectives with ‘ed’ and ‘ing’ endings. When focusing on these we understand how to better describe a situation and how we feel. The lesson went well with students enjoying an amusing video where the focus was ‘annoying’ and ‘annoyed’. The group enjoyed this and understood clearly what the focus was, leading onto a productive, light-hearted and enjoyable lesson. Two of our students expressed their delight in the lesson saying “In these lessons we learn so much and they are interesting, we are always interested”. I was delighted to hear this, especially as they were using target language from the lesson correctly and effectively, describing situations and how they felt. A young boy attended our class; he studies at a comprehensive school here and has an English level comparable with native speakers of his age. He was very good at helping an older Afghani gentleman, a newcomer to our class as well as some other students; he seemed to enjoy helping quite a lot. The lesson had a wonderful ‘well-rounded’ feel to it.
Dawn's student was very happy to tell us that as a result of making and having a clear CV she has found a job, additionally she will receive ongoing NVQ training in her new role – wonderful news indeed.
