I am teaching a business English course which includes students having to write short texts (e.g. an email) of around 200 words.
Aside from marking errors, I try to give students feedback. The problem is I have quickly run out of things to say beyond "good vocabulary", well set out" or simply "well done".
These are not very advanced students and it's not as if they are putting much originality into their assignments. But I do want to encourage them and not just give them the same anodine comments week after week.
Any ideas (or off-the-peg comments!) welcomed.
