Our Gen-Z students are determined and like challenges. So, to 'sell' any writing activity to them show what’s the practical value in it and make it fun, gamify!
In fact, an ability to write powerful texts is not just a language sklil – it’s a superpower! Because any advertising or political campaign, social movement, negotiations or even relationships start with the text.

- Getting bored of working with any kind of textbooks;
- Using workbooks for drawing;
- Picking up their phones any moment you are not looking;
Diagnosis made: 'Allergy to books'. Prescription: 'Gamification'.
