Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The lesson started with a warm-up game where the students had to arrange themselves in order of height from tallest to shortest without talking. Then the lesson proceeded with a lecture on how to write a letter, both formal and informal, going through how the structure should look. Lastly, the students got to write their own letter, formal or informal.

Personnel Input:
Siri Lindblad and Freja Schuldt planned the lesson together. In class, Siri Lindblad taught the lesson while Diannah Rose helped with translation from English to Kiswahili when needed. When the students wrote their own letter, all facilitators circled around to help the students with questions, etc.

The students gained a deeper understanding of the differences between formal and informal letters. They had the opportunity to enhance their letter-writing skills, which is valuable for their future endeavors. Practicing letter writing also contributed positively to their development in English writing.

Unanticipated Achievements:
The students were very eager to write their letters. Typically, you learn more effectively when you are interested in the topic and have the opportunity to practice what has been taught theoretically. This suggests that many of the students are likely to carry this knowledge with them into the future.
