Description
This is a great lesson for your first lesson back in the New Year!

Find out what your students did for Christmas and New Year. There's a conversation, followed by practice exercises.

The lesson rounds off with a survey. Your students can find out what their classmates did. It's good fluency practice and an excellent review of the Past Simple.

This lesson is for pre-intermediate level students. However, it's easy to make the lesson easier. You can pre-teach more vocabulary, and give additional support for the survey questions.
