Christmas songs for your ESL class

I’m sure you know the benefits of learning English with songs. The vocabulary sticks better! Luckily we have a repertoire of super catchy and modern songs to work with in class.

In this activity you have a video with the song and a fill the gaps activity.

Do your students have a different taste or do they not like Christmas? Great! because there are a lot of alternative songs that you can also use in English class.

Christmas ads compete every year for excellence! Take the opportunity to bring up interesting topics of conversation with your more advanced students. Also they are memorable and fun.
