An ESL Class Writes and Puts On a Play

Students in Susan Hoffius' Advanced Grammar and Speaking class at Rice University in Houston, Texas collaborated to write and put on a play in English called Where's the Gardener. It was the students' first time to perform in a second language. They found it a fun and challenging experience and an excellent way to improve their English skills.
