·         Read the question carefully to make sure you understand what’s being asked.
·         Organize your ideas into a diagram, keeping an eye on vocabulary and grammar.
·         Use a formal style.
·         Start with a short but clear introduction.
·         Use examples, anecdotes or personal experiences to support your thesis.
·         Try to make a clear, concise, full, creative and comprehensible presentation.
·         Use transitional words and phrases to join ideas and paragraphs, and make it flow.
·         Let your personality show.
·         Try to make an impact on the reader.
·         Try to keep the reader interested at all times.
·         Think in your own language. Don’t use words adapted from other languages and don’t translate things literally.
·         Use a rich vocabulary and include idioms.
·         Use advanced grammar: variations of structures, clauses, subjunctives, correct sequences of verbs. Don’t use words unless you’re sure they’re correct.
·         Make sure your essay has the minimum number of words that are required.
·         Finish your writing by trying to impress the reader.
·         Use the last five minutes to proofread your essay.

1.     Biblical table tennis
  1. Say the text with the students.
  2. Now, play table tennis with the words in the text.
  3. Use the exact words in the text, one at a time, alternating between teacher and students.
  4. Keep doing this until you finish with the text.
  5. The competition can be held between two students or by dividing the class into two teams.

2.     The hot potato
  1. The students form a circle with everyone standing.
  2. Quickly, they pass the “potato” from one student to the next.
  3. When the teacher says “stop”, the student who has the potato has to say the verse.
Note: It can also be done with music, with the teacher stopping it.

3.     Biblical puzzle
  1. Write the text in a poster.
  2. Cut it forming a puzzle.
  3. The students can try to solve it.

4. The hidden verse
  1. Write each word of the text in small pieces of paper or cards.
  2. Hide them in the classroom.
  3. The students have to find the cards, and put the text in the right order in front of the class.
  4. You can use this biblical game by dividing the class into two teams to create some competition.

5. Crazy stops
  1. Show the text.
  2. Ask who had egg for breakfast. Those students stand up and repeat the text (it can be any other food or thing you come up with).

  4. The students sit down after repeating it.
