An efficient way to engage learners in enhancing their language skills is to incorporate legends related to different cultures and regions.
So before every Chinese New Year, I encourage my students to know about the Chinese Zodiac Calendar and its origin through Chinese Zodiac Stories.
Working with Zodiac sign traits description provides an opportunity to the learners to widen their vocabulary about personality and characteristic adjectives. Students, while talking about themselves and their friends, develop communication skills and confidence, no matter whether they believe in such mythological stories or not.
The Chinese Zodiac is based on a twelve-year cycle, and each year is represented by an animal.
Find the year you were born to know your sign and improve your personality adjectives vocabulary.
2018 is the year of DOG
Happy Chinese New Year 2018!
