Spanish students improve AEC writing classwork

Students from Murcia, Spain improved selected writing classwork of Alternative Education Center (AEC) students early this month by revising and editing the classwork and adding an artwork that depicts its message. Spanish students specifically improved the ideas of AEC writing pieces and mechanics in terms of grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. The activity was a great practice for the Spanish students to improve their English writing skills. Discovering some mechanical corrections from an English speaker's writing output helps boost the self-confidence of non-English speakers like the students from Murcia, Spain. This opportunity surely motivates non-English speaking students to practice writing in English even more. Ms. Maria Aranzazu Mouriño Loretto, the Spanish students' teacher, claimed that it was not easy for her students to accomplish the English writing task, but they were really motivated to doing it, knowing that their learning partners from the US were waiting for their response.
