AEP’s first lesson this week started off by playing scrabble. Scrabble is a word game in which two to four players score points by placing tiles, each bearing a single letter, onto a gameboard which is divided into a 15×15 grid of squares. The tiles must form words which, in crossword fashion, flow left to right in rows or downwards in columns.

It’s a great way for students to enhance their knowledge on varieties of words, and for teachers, to test how much vocabulary their student have got. Though this time, AEP gave this scrabbles a little twist. The rules play the same however, you could make up your own words. To make it practical, you’ll have to give it a definition and also use it in a sentence. By the end of the lesson, we were able to make few amazing words, which i have unfortunately forgotten by now.

Our second lesson in AEP, had us rewrite our essays about “The desire for higher status or greater wealth than others is what motivates most people to succeed in the world.To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement.” keeping in mind, the feedback we’ve got from our perviously marked essay.
