CAE write a review – try adverts.

When I try to persuade adults to write a review as practice for CAE, a fairly standard response is : ‘I don’t have time to watch films/read books/go to the theatre so I cannot write a review.’ If you get a similar response then try using commercials from Youtube.

In one CAE class held in a detergent manufacturer I showed two washing powder adverts, one from Italy and one from India. Italian Laundry Detergent Commercial       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQQs3nl0LcY           NIrma Washing Powder Ambulance Ad                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kFRr06pa8o .

We then went through some of the text book exercises about writing reviews, some collaborative practice in class, before setting the homework task – Find two washing powder advertisements and review them.  – I got some very well written homework!
