    Simple writing-speaking classroom activity.

    This activity is great to encourage students to write.  It is simple enough to be successfully completed by the beginners; as well it gives more advanced students an option to write more. They can use informal language while answering, and following discussions also motivates them to use communicative language. Whether in class, or as homework, the activity should provide students with enough time to structure the sentences correctly. Students might be encouraged by the teacher to write more sentences to explain their main point.
