Quick and easy back to school activity


I bet that, like me, you’ve taken plenty of photos over the last couple of weeks. It’s nice to be able to illustrate your chats about the holidays by showing your friends just how much your niece has grown, our how happy your son was to receive those football boots .

Your students will feel the same.

I hook my tablet up to the  interactive whiteboard and show my class some (edited) highlights of my holidays, a great moment to explain what mince pies are…


…or to explain about the coin in Christmas pudding…


One-sided conversations aren’t much fun, so I quickly encourage students to show each other their holiday snaps and describe them.

Not only no preparation, but a completely “real”, natural conversation in EFL class, that’s a bonus!
