Are there photographs or videos you’d like to share on social media with your English speaking followers, but language is a barrier? Learn how to tell stories with pictures using descriptive captions, images, & graphics on Instagram, TikTok, and more!
In this workshop, expert Kenya Nelson combines creative writing with ESL learning that will help you create captivating posts, build your vocabulary, and get sentence level writing practice at the same time. You will learn how to look at photographs and use creative language to come up with exciting stories you can share on social media.
We will focus on a few select areas of grammar such as writing in the present progressive and past tense, using prepositions of place, using complex adjective phrases, using “there is” sentence constructions, writing about causes and effects, and more.
