What kind of homework do you prefer?

Slide 27

Webtools WHY? “Because it’s much faster and I use what I learned in class in practice.” “Because it’s a fun way to do homework” “Because you have to do something that is fun and cool, and it’s like playing. And workbook is a WORK book, teenagers don’t like work, we already do it in school. Listening to their voices

Slide 28

“Because these kinds of exercises make us increase our vocabulary and also help us to be more creative, because the workbook has the answers at the end of the book , so many students just look at it and don’t learn a thing.” “I think workbook exercises is faster. But when I have more time and want to study, I prefer exercises using webtools because I think I learn more, I listen me talking, reading …”

Slide 29

“Because when we do exercises in the internet we can move beyond the writing and reading in class and besides that we stay more interested in learning English.” “Because it’s harder to forget and cooler to do, however, it takes time to sign up for the challenges.” “Because I’m always on the computer so it’s better and all the exercises are different.”

Slide 30

WORKBOOK “Because the students have the answers at the end of the book to compare with their answers.” “Webtools are boring because most people don’t have a microphone so it’s difficult.” “Because it’s easier and doesn’t take time.” “Because it’s more practical and simple.”
