  • Ideas for Young Learners
    • Get them talking about their own countries first: Flags, Food, Climate, People – Anything!
    • Show and Tell: They can bring in things from their countries (objects, souvenirs, food, even music and songs)
    • Then they start asking each other – Interaction !
    • DIFFERENT IS GREAT...DIFFERENT IS BEAUTIFUL!

      First-lesson icebreakers (great opportunities for cultural elements to appear):
    • Would you take the last piece of cake at a reception, if you were hungry?
    • How would you feel if a colleague of yours got the job you really wanted?
