It's beginning to look like Christmas!

Today some of my students taught me how to say "Merry Christmas" in their languages:

  

I love teaching my students about Christmas at school and using it as a chance to find out about festivals and traditions in my students' own countries. 

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:
