It uses the auxiliary wen, ben–men, which mark a preterit, also to indicate future tense it uses wi and wuda. Progressive tense is marked by de. It uses beg and mek to say something politely or asking something. In addition, Creole has other auxiliaries to use before the verb, they mark the probability among these are maita, mos, mosi, kyan and kuda The aspects it was mentioned are some of the many aspects of Creole that make it as complex as any other languages when it comes to grammar.

Finally, it is important to point out that: “Some people think that creoles are “just” a mixture of other languages. By that criterion, English is 'just' like Creole. A huge percentage of English’s vocabulary comes from Latin and French (which is a Romance language belonging with the Indo-European family) and has contributions and loans coming from many others.”(1983). taken from:

PANCRI'S MISTAKES Ximena Cardona Caro Julián Orozco Jheyson Balanta Alejandro Zuluaga ______________________________________________

The project shows teaching through images, making use of resources like an easily recognizable comic. The idea is also presented as a different didactic that will be part of the final project of the communicative competence III course titled Curious Language, in the section of entertainment. One of the main targets is to recover the activities that make use of multimedia tools combined with the traditional ways on which we have growth with that’s why the didactic consists in a story where the end is to teach grammar, for which attention and dedication is needed. The main subject is to correct the mistakes that are committed in like for example interculturalism.

From a lot of time there has been a search for teaching, for example in fomenting reading, using correctly the multimedia tools, autonomous learning is part of the situations that are faced daily in the classroom, McVicker (2011) says that: “Teachers can use comics for reading instruction by capitalizing on their colourful graphic representation. Technology and reading are wed during the use of the Internet, and readers must rely on their visual literacy skills a group of vision competences people can hone for comprehension.” Therefore, thanks to the graphical and colourful nature of the comic it is of great use inside the classroom, some advantages provided by the comic is that it allows to tell a story in a short


and exemplified way, easily transmitting a subject or idea and can be adapted to the different levels of learning, Perez (2009) says that “The usage of the comic can be extended to a great number of situations (...) students will be interested in the activity as long as they are presented with something that fits their interests.”

it will have mistakes that will need to be identified by the reader.

In Conclusion, these two authors support the comic as an important tool inside the classroom, and that’s why we will present our final project in this format with the end of coming back to it and use it in the context of English. Making use of the comic for teaching grammar and correct its possible mistakes, putting aside the multimedia and coming back to traditional activities. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE: -Promoting reading, since it is a written story. -Promoting an entertaining space for learning drifting slightly from traditional tools. -Showing common mistakes of the daily language.
