There is also a maze of trails: some trails are interesting, some tiresome and some simply leading nowhere. Where should you start, how should you start, and is it possible to leave your own mark?

Here are a few motivational techniques and ideas to get you climbing…

Woods & Leibovitz (2005) ESL- Common Problems (Presentation)Abstract: To encourage ESL students in their writing by showing them that many of the writing problems they experience are in fact experienced by many native writers as well. To collaborate with the students to come up with some solutions which may help them respond to these problems in future writing assignments. All of this should be interactive with very little ‘lecture style’ teaching.
