In this assignment, we were supposed to tell a story using sound effects only. I decided to create a ghost story. Here it is:
I used FindSounds to look for the effects, then I pasted them together in Audacity.
I like the way this can be used in an EFL classroom. It is great for practicing past tenses, or simply as a creative writing assignment. In pairs or groups, students could first discuss what they think is happening in the story, then write their story. The accent should be not on "getting it right" (i.e. what the teacher wanted to say), but on the students' creativity.
What do you think has happened in my story?
