Juan Diego Ruiz's curator insight, January 15, 2:29 AM
One excellent way of learning a language is to use the language in real context. The idea of working with "Christmas" songs or any other related to an specific moment of the year will help enourmously people because they will be more attentive due to the connection of the time and contexts. Also there is a lot of possibilities to work with when using these type of ideas, from here teachers can extract  a lot of activities for learning English and practicing it.
