1. FUN ACTIVITIES CONNECTED TO CHRISTMAS

Christmas is coming. How much do you know about Christmas in English speaking cultures? Is is similar or different to Christmas in Italy?
Just to have a little fun at the end of your course, look at the worksheet below to see if you can match the vocabulary to the pictures and then with a partner do the quiz. To do this you should:
1) complete the answers to the questions in the way you THINK your partner would reply;
2) Check to see if you were right or not

For example:

The first question says:
My partner usually eats too much at Christmas:
(You need to decide if you think this is true or not and why. Then you should check with your partner by saying something like:
"I think it is true because I know that you love food and at Christmas there is a lot of good food to eat."
