    English class in any college is based on the four types of work: reading, writing, speaking and listening. All those need to be included into the structure of the lesson in any possible way. In case there’s a task to complete a narration, a student should think: I write my English essay on this topic, because … – and here the teacher should be able to explain thoroughly why it’s so important to write a paper, a letter, etc. Such letters that are just required won’t be written by students – like this topic: Write a letter to a company that builds a shopping mall in the park and ask them to change their mind.
