With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve taken the opportunity to put together a fun resource which can be used with upper primary and lower secondary learners to find out all about Christmas!

The resource explores a whole range of different languages and concepts, everything from how to say Merry Christmas in Hawaiian, to exploring Welsh Christmas traditions like the Mari Lwyd, to getting creative in the kitchen making a tasty Bûche de Noël.

The resources traverse a whole range of different cultures and languages, but also offer opportunities to engage in more detailed learning in Welsh, Spanish, French or German. For non-specialist primary teachers there are detailed notes and audio files included, and for secondary teachers, the resources offer opportunity to delve into a variety of different language concepts and structures.

This resource is just one part of a series that is being developed by us at MFL Mentoring, aiming to support our wonderful teacher community as we embed multilingualism across our language classrooms.

Keep an eye out for future resources which will include a whole range of different things, including Lego and Alebrijes – is your interest piqued?!
