Description
Is the Christmas you see on TV shows on commercials similar to the Christmas your students enjoy? Is it all wonderful food and drink with well-behaved relatives?!

This lesson looks at some of the stress that Christmas can cause!

Following the lead-in, there is a collocation matching exercise, and then a gap fill reading. We have kept the reading reasonably easy (especially with your pre-teaching!) so your students won't be feeling too stressed themselves!

Some expressions they will learn include:

  • the festive season
  • look forward to
  • an overcooked turkey
  • a controversial topic

The lesson continues with comprehension questions, more collocation practice and the chance for your students to give advice on how to reduce stress at Christmas.

It's a great topic for discussion - you can add lots of questions at the end. Your students will have a fun - but also useful - lesson to round off the year.

This lesson is written for pre-intermediate level students.
