Love is in the air! Almost everywhere we see red balloons, teddy bears, and amazing gifts that you can get for your beloved ones. Having holiday lessons may be really beneficial for English learners. Thematic lessons offer a more natural way to learn the specific vocabulary and to encourage students to hold discussions on the topic. If you want to have a romantic lesson with your Pre-Intermediate adults, here are several ideas that you can use in your classes. Students will play games, improve their listening and speaking skills and have teamwork, learn about different ways of celebrating the holiday, what to buy for each other on St. Valentine’s Day and how to make this day special.

Task 1

Work in small groups or pairs. Ask each other questions to find out the person that is described in the squares. Then write the name in the box.
