Maybe it's because Christmas is just a few short weeks away, but this week we discussed childhood in class. We talked about our own childhoods, memories, parenting, and the differences between childhood today.
Learners could try something easy, like A Fun Day, or listening to people Talking About Their Childhood or for something more difficult try the exercise Raising Successful Children. But if you want something in original version you may enjoy the TED Talk about What Adults Can Learn From Children, which like all TED Talks is available with subtitles and interactive transcript.
For learners who want to practice reading, check out Unconditional Love or this article about a child genius. If you want to read something in original version, you could read this interesting article about the importance of play or this great webcomic about falling asleep in the car as a kid: Our Toyota Was Fantastic.
For writing this week, please respond to this prompt: What action makes you the most nostalgic for your childhood? Is it seeing old pictures or going through old clothes? Something else entirely. Write a story of you going through those nostalgic actions and having various memories of your childhood.
