Read the examples of your chosen text type and cross-reference against the task specific clarifications of each text type.
Your assignment is to spend some time during the Chinese New Year break to experience local or overseas travel, take notes, and draft your chosen text type.
You can experience the following without having to spend a lot of money:
- Go to a restaurant and eat there
- Recall a hotel you stayed in recently
- Recall a trip (you can even use our Weeks without walls – Dali and Luang Prabang)
Whatever content you choose, it may be used to develop an effective written piece that shows global interactions, audience imperative and intertextuality. It must also give a sense of place and time.
Criteria and task specific clarifications are on Managebac under the task “Travel Writing Long Piece.”
