A2/B1 (even B2) activity. “Ormie the pig.” A story for the very young.

Watch this video of about 4 minutes and choose an option (or do more than one option!)

  • 1. Write the story that you see – you can narrate using the present continuous (say what is happening) or the past (narrate what happened).
  • 2. Record the story orally (in the present continous or the past).

Make sure the reader/listener can follow the story correctly and naturally by using linking words and organising the test in a logical and coherent way. Try to make the story more interesting by using adjectives, adverbs, etc.

When you have finished, send me your written work and/or audio for feedback.
