Narrative Techniques

Apr 14, 2015


Have you ever read a story of which you already knew the ending? Why can such a story still be enjoyable? Often times, how a story is told is more important that what is told. Writers use narrative technique to deliver a story. Interesting narratives make for interesting reads. Point of view - Who tells the story? Narration - Who is the narrator speaking to? Speech - How do the narrator and the characters of a story speak? Writing narrative texts is also a good way to practise using grammar you may already be familiar with. Why not incorporate tenses other than the Past Simple? Using the Past Perfect, Past Continuous and Past Perfect Continuous not only makes for a more interesting read but also, if you are in an exam situation, demonstrates to the examiner that you can use these tenses naturally and correctly.

Owl Cafe!

Apr 09, 2015


This week, London gains a new attraction for one week only: The Owl Café! Our Japanese students may already be familiar with the concept: for a fee, you and friends can eat and drink whilst in the company of these magnificent birds. It’s the latest of example of animal themed cafes popping up in London following on from Cat Cafes and Lizard Cafes. More than 35,000 people entered the ballot to win tickets and the lucky winners will be drawn this week. Profits from the ticket sales will go to the Barn Owl Centre, a charity dedicated to bird welfare. Would you be interested in going? What animal cafes would you like to see opened in London?
