1) Listening. ESO3: "Merry Christmas everyone!" Listen to this song and get the right answers! http://www.esolcourses.com/content/topics/songs/christmas/pre-intermediate/merry-christmas-everyone.html
ESO4: Last year we listened to this song when we watched the film ove Actually. Let's see how much you remember! http://www.esolcourses.com/content/topics/songs/christmas/all-I-want-for-christmas-is-you.html

Did you notice that it's summertime in Australia and New Zealand for Xmas? :) Well, let's learn more about the UK and the USA this time...

2) Reading: ESO3: Learn about Xmas in the UK: http://www.esolcourses.com/content/topics/christmas/intermediate-christmas-shopping-reading.html
ESO4: Learn about Xmas traditions in the USA: http://www.esolcourses.com/content/topics/christmas/pre-intermediate/christmas-trees-an-american-tradition.html Now have a look to this poster and prepare a set of five questions to ask to another group. The one who answers more questions correctly... wins! http://www.esolcourses.com/content/topics/christmas/intermediate/christmas-trees.html

3) Speaking: What are the differences between the Christmas time in that country and yours? Do you have another significant celebration instead of Christmas? Which one? When? What do you usually do?

ESO4: Many people make resolutions for the New Year.. what are yours? http://www.esolcourses.com/content/topics/new-year/intermediate/new-year-resolutions.html

5) QUIZZ.  New Year's celebrations are special... and different around the world (even in different dates!). Learn about these curious facts and play! When they celebrate the New Year in China? And in Vietnam? And in Iran? More in http://www.esolcourses.com/topics/new-year-celebrations.html
