28 October 2018


The Humans of New York (HONY) project on Facebook has had a lot of impact on social media. The images and stories from this project are perfect to use in the EFL classroom. By confronting students with this engaging and most importantly authentic material, you can really enhance their motivation. In this talk, Djalal will talk about several of the activities he himself has come up with involving the HONY project. A few examples: music assisted reading, quote generative writing, music inspired writing, quotographs, etc.
