TEFL.net Site Of The Month ~ ESL Holiday Lessons

TEFL Site of the Month December 2009

ESL Holidays.comThis resource site for teachers, developed by Sean Banville (Breaking News English), offers dozens of English lesson plans on a variety of holiday themes. Each month the featured lessons are placed at the top of the site, making it easy for teachers to plan supplementary activities ahead of time. The holiday lessons are popular with students because they extend beyond the usual Christmas and Halloween themes. As well as traditional holidays you will find unique lessons such as “World Television Day” and “Buy Nothing Day”. Each lesson covers all of the main skills, including listening. Activities include fill-in-the gap, put the text back together, and class surveys and discussions.

    Dear TEFL Net
    Thank you very much for this award. I am extremely happy this site won it. I plan to expand the site so that eventually there’ll be a holiday lesson for every day of the year.
    Best wishes to you.

    Superb! I adore all Sean Banville Sites. One week ago I used the lesson “Human Rights Day”. It was a sucess with my students. The peculiarity of his lessons is that all the exercices are so logically built, info in the texts is so precise, that by the end of the lessons learners have easily become experts in this or that issue.
    Thank him very much for his laboriuos and thorough work!
