Here are a selection of Christmas resources for use with ESOL learners. I created some of these resources myself over the years. Others are my favourites from the Internet.
As a warmer, here are links to a vocabulary matching and gapfill I created about Christmas in the UK.
WhyChristmas.com has a ‘Christmas around the world‘ section that gives details on how Christmas is celebrated in different countries around the world. Here are some accompanying questions for learners to answer.
Google’s Santa Tracker site has a less comprehensive version of how Christmas is celebrated in a selection of countries around the world, called ‘Holiday Traditions’. Here are some accompanying questions I created for this.
Allinone garden and leisure originally created an infographic about Christmas trees. The link no longer appears to be available, but can be accessed here. Accompanying questions will be uploaded soon.
I created a couple of listening gapfill activities, with the lyrics from Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin Stevens and Merry Xmas War Is Over by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Both songs are widely available on the Internet.
