Christmas is just around the corner and as children are busy writing their Christmas lists to Santa Claus and the Three Kings, we talked about shopping this week in class. Try working with some important vocabulary and grammar here or take a shopping vocabulary quiz.
For listening, try Shopping For the Day, Listen a Minute about Shopping (mp3 and script), or this BBC podcast about how to haggle (mp3 and script).
Now, let's talk about reading. Read this article about consumerism, another about compulsive shopping, or about "Giving Tuesday."
Don't forget about writing! Do you think Christmas is too focused on consumerism? If so, what do you propose to balance it out? Would you give up giving gifts at the holidays?
This week in original version cinema, they are showing Drive at the Cañas Cinema from December 10th-16th at 20:00.
