E-Mail Extasy

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Hear is an idea I have tried with my Business English students. Many of them here in Germany prefer to receive E-Mail from their business partners rather than to speak on the phone with them. With my students being so busy with their normal work duties, I have incorporated the use of E-Mail as a method to assess their writing ability, as well as their general knowledge. I assign them one E-mail per week on a subject of their choosing. I have received a great deal of positive feedback. I have also had some very interesting reading! I answer each E-Mail as soon as possible with corrections as needed. My students have expressed theri enthusiasm for this approach, saying that this gives them another method of learning English. I will expand on this idea soon to include other electronic means of communication.
