Сегодня мы будем практиковать навыки говорения, отвечая на вопросы по теме «Рождество«. Следующая подборка вопросов это полезный ресурс для преподавателей — используйте их, чтобы разговорить своих студентов уровня Pre-Intermediate и Intermediate. :)

Для тех, кто изучает язык, будет очень полезно прочесть вопросы на тему «Christmas» по двум причинам: 1) просто для практики — ведь вопросы в английском языке строятся особым образом; 2) для развития навыков общения — если в разговоре с собеседником вы сами будете задавать вопросы, то вам не придется много говорить, а только слушать.
