It's beginning to look like Christmas!
Today some of my students taught me how to say "Merry Christmas" in their languages:
Many of my ESOL students are very familiar with Christmas as they celebrate it in their home countries. However, for a lot of my students from the Middle East and Sudan Christmas can be a completely new for them:
"Who is this man with a red coat and white beard? Why is my child dressed as a shepherd in their school play? Why are there green trees with lights in every shop and building?"
These are just a few questions that my students often ask!
There are many great Christmas resources out there. Two of my favorite videos to show students are:
The Nativity Story for ESL students: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swmOqAcFP80
Mr Bean's Christmas: Mr bean Episode 6 FULL EPISODE 'Merry Christmas, Mr bean' - YouTube
I have also made some resources aimed at low literacy Pre-Entry students and Entry 1 students. Click on the pictures below to download:
