Learning English with the American Election
A few weeks ago I asked my students, all 7th graders in a regular school, to make their own posters using the 'Election vocabulary' we had previously studied. In order to do that, they had to choose their own candidate (a celebrity but not a politician), a name for his/her party and a slogan for their campaign.
It was a very simple but funny task and the kids really enjoyed it. Moreover, they could learn a bit more about the American elections as all the "Obama Vs Romney" hype was going on at that moment.
Would you vote for any of these candidates? Maybe Einstein could be a good choice...
