The legends related to different cultures and regions is an interesting way to engage learners to enhance their language skills.
Before Chinese New Year holidays, I encouraged my students to know about Chinese Zodiac Calendar and its origin through Chinese Zodiac Stories.
Working with Zodiac sign traits description provides a great opportunity to widen learners’ 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, each year is represented by an animal. Find the year you were born to know your own sign and improve your personality adjectives vocabulary
2018 is the year of DOG
Happy Chinese New Year 2018!
