My two daughters love creative writing, not only is it fun but it allows them to explore their creativity whilst improving their skills in English. When I collect them from their lesson they come out smiling and laughing and when I see what they have written and created I am extremely impressed and often amazed!
I just wanted to say that Anna really enjoys your classes and I think it is fantastic that you are running them as the imagination is something that is often stifled or forgotten these days.
