    What about group discussions!

    Dear everybody,
    I have a suggestion, and I am really interested in telling it. What about making a reading sessions? One of the teachers can suggest a short story and ask us to do an assignment on it. Like, asking us to rewrite it in our own words, some old words and we can find their roots, rewrite an old poem in new version. I think it would be very important for us to search some old words and to know their contemporary usage. I was thinking in improving our searching methods, Language skills, correcting our own mistakes. I was thinking of making it a weekly or a monthly assingment, because it will give the members the chance to finish it and the busy teachers to correct it. :wink:
    I hope to know your idea about it.
    Latoof. :D

    Sounds like a good idea- give me an hour or two to mull it over.

    Good night,
    Whenever you will be ready, just consider that it will be better if you will use stories or poems of 2/3 pages.
    Thank you.

    Do you mean 2 to 3 pages?

    I have an assigment for you. Write a short story of 500 words or less. It can be about anything. It can be a true story or it can be fiction. You have a week.

    :wink:

    Ok, I hope you will enjoy the story when you will read it.
    But, is not a week a very long time? :D

    Be ready to read it. And as I said to RonBee, I hope you will enjoy it.
    So, both of you wait your pieces of writing by the next two days. :D
