Here are the first two videos of my Jekyll and Hyde series included in one pack at a discount of 30%. These are animated movie adaptations of the book and as in most such cases they do not adhere strictly to the original work.

The movie and comic book style script included her are a fun and engaging way of introducing students to this classic gothic horror story. The materials included would be ideal for bringing the story to younger learners or students of ESL As well as the videos, of these resources also include; 1. Two comic book style versions of the movie script in PDF. One in colour which can be used for presentation purposes by the teacher or on students devices such as notebook computers or iPads. The other is BW for easier printing. Both comic books also include writing and question tasks at the end of the story. 2.

Creative Storytelling Speaking/Writing

Creative Storytelling Speaking/Writing

Picture description can be rather boring after some time and it occurred to me that usually, the pictures are not very creative. I came up with an idea how to spice it up a bit. The pictures in this activity are unusual, imaginative and I hope they will spark some entertaining stories. I recommend to use it with students 16+, it best works with young adults. It could be used with stronger Intermediate students, Upper Intermediate and Advanced. As a variation, you can use it as writing prompts.
