The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to start thinking about gifts for the loved ones in your life. For your sibling, friend, or significant other learning English, there are many holiday gifts you can give. Here are our top picks.
Foreign Language Calendar
An English language calendar is not only practical but also a study tool that lasts the entire year. Foreign language calendars with quotes, language and culture facts, vocabulary, and phrases make perfect gifts for language learners. Choose a 12-month calendar or a daily tear-away version for 365 days of learning English.
Vocabulary Refrigerator Magnets
Refrigerator magnets make an inexpensive stocking stuffer. Try a set of vocabulary or poetry refrigerator magnets, which English language learners can use to practice vocabulary and build out sentences. Souvenir magnets from different states and destinations also make excellent teaching tools for students learning about the regions of the United States, and they’re practical, too!
What better way to learn about a culture than through local cuisine? A cooking class delivered in English offers a hands-on way for students to learn about American culture without the textbooks. There are so many benefits to learning a language through cooking, from vocabulary practice to the possibility of meeting new friends in the city. Your language learner might even discover a new favorite food!
Newspaper or Magazine Subscription
Newspapers and magazine are great language learning tools. Provide your loved one with reading material for the year with a subscription to an English-language publication. Newspapers and magazines can help language learners of all skill levels learn new vocabulary, brush up on pop culture, and keep up with current events.
English Language Courses
Learning a language requires time and dedication, and the gifts above offer a small way for you to show support for your language learner. If your loved one is learning English on her own, she might also benefit from the gift of English language courses.
