Mulan - A Life For A Life (with English subs)

Activity 1

Today you will be writing a telegram to the Emperor, in the shoes of one of Mulan’s friends from the Army. Your writing should be in the first person. 

Your telegram should either be for or against the Emperor killing Mulan for what she has done.


Are you trying to support Mulan? Or betray her and tell the Emperor she should be killed?


Decide whether you are supporting Mulan or betraying her, and then jot down some ideas supporting your argument.


A telegram is a short piece of writing which gives a message in as few words as possible.
