A festive gift from teachers to teachers!

Look at this wonderful resource pack created by language teachers on the online course Language Teaching for the Planet. It is a bank of lesson ideas that embed an environment issue into the language classroom that we created as the final task on this course. What do you think of that?

The original idea was each of us to create a lesson each but this morphed into creating a resource pack to share with all of you.

Happy reading and may your students benefit from these lessons!
