What not to do
Do not punish your students by forcing them to perform an English task as the punishment. Positive reinforcement for good behaviour should take precedent over punishment. Show them that the target language is fun and they will want to learn it. Reward each successive approximation of a terminal behaviour.
To Punish them by making them write out lines in the targety language will cause them to associate punishment with writing English. This will have the effect of causing them to hate writing in English.
