Both teenage and adult students generally enjoy reading about fantasy creatures because it stimulates their imagination, provides a touch of nostalgia tied to their childhood days, and gives a feel of the culture related to the language (i.e. legends and traditions). It also fits in with the current trend in books, movies and computer games. This holistic integrated-skills activity utilises a task-based-learning approach and is aimed at (young) adults at an (upper) intermediate level of English. Its objective is to practise all four language macroskills in a non-threatening way, even for shy students. Different types of learners are catered for: the visual learner is stimulated by the layout of the table, the auditory learner by the listening and speaking involved, the kinaesthetic learner by the mingling section. Both brain hemispheres are activated: the left hemisphere by summarising and organising information in a table, the right hemisphere by the topic itself and by the element of interaction. Suggestions for CLIL are included.
