Time for a holiday?

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the second:

Here is another advert from my cinema trip. It advertises the British holiday company Thomson.

What would you do with this advert in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context it is used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

Travel Etiquette: Food and Drink

Travel etiquette is something which often appears in coursebooks. It’s a rich topic for discussion. This article from Lonely Planet has lots of tips about table manners around the world, some of which are ‘corrected’ in the comments below.

What people eat around the world

Jamie Keddie tweeted this link on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. It’s a set of pictures published by Time magazine showing families from around the family with all of the food they eat in a week laid out around them. The pictures are absolutely fascinating, not just because of the food but also because of where the photos are taken, and I think would make a really rich source of material for your classroom. They are taken from the book Hungry Planet by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio.

Durham Cathedral

Durham Cathedral has a very important place in my heart. I was at Durham University from 2004-2008 and my graduation ceremony took place in the cathedral. Having recently been back for a visit, I thought it would be a good prompt for this blog.

The picture came from this site about Durham Cathedral and Castle as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The homepage for Durham Cathedral is here.

The Cathedral was voted Britain’s favourite building in a survey in 2001.

What would you do with this picture and / or any of the information from the other sites in your class? You can make any assumptions you like about the context in which it is used.
