200th session of English over Tea
One of the popular co-curricular activities at ELTIS, English over Tea completed its 200th session on January 21, 2020. The 200th session was celebrated on the theme ‘The Time Machine’. The students at ELTIS got on the time machine and participated in various activities at different stalls. Each stall offered engaging activities that encouraged students to speak and write using correct grammar and appropriate vocabulary.
The stalls were:
Done and Dusted (The Past tense)
Students picked up chits from a bowl and shared incidents from their lives related to the words in the chit.
Students read short stories and retold them in their own words.
Here and Now ( The Present Tense)
Students played board games and spoke about their routine, habits, free time activities etc.
In the game Speaking Roulade students read facts and shared their opinions about them. A few of them also used present perfect to speak about changes in their lives.
Sooner and Later (The Future Tense)
Students completed the plot of the story after watching brief clips from movies and TV series.
Students pretended to be astrologers and predicted the future of their friends.
Tame your Words (Vocabulary)
Students created a list of words related to the word in the chit they picked up. The fun element here was that they picked a gem, and then picked up a chit with the same colour.
In pairs students enjoyed playing the famous board game Scrabble
Students also unscrambled a list of words given to them. Apart from this they made many words from a long word.
Time your Tale (Writing)
Students selected an Idiom or Proverb on Time and wrote a story in about 200 words. The best story was awarded a cash price of Rs.500.
Time for Treatment (English with doctors at ELTIS)
Students at ELTIS asked questions related to English and got their answers from the Doctors at ELTIS.
The event was a huge success as about 200 students participated very actively
and with enthusiasm.
