Imaginative/Creative Writing

We’re Off To Germany

Football can offer learners an enthusiastic, exciting and challenging context to write.

An opportunity such as; Scotland preparing for EURO 2024 in Germany, is a great stimulus to ignite imagination and create a short story.

Such a stimulus can also provide learners the opportunity to write from various perspectives e.g. through the eyes of a player, referee or supporter.
