Hey English teacher! Looking for some great ESL lesson plans and handouts on travel and tourism to liven up the classroom for your students?
This week we’ve been focusing on travel resources for ‘Module 201 – Joe Goes To China’ at XOKenglish.com.br which means that we’ve been gathering extra material on EFL flight and hotel reservation exercises, restaurant ordering dialogues, and just about anything else that goes along with the theme.
Anyway…here are some of the resources I located this morning and will be sharing in our next teacher meeting…but I figured it could help a lot of other English teachers as well.
