Product Description

As we near the end of 2019 we also say goodbye to the 2010's. Take a stroll back through the good, the bad and the ugly of the decade with this comprehensive review of the biggest news stories from around the world.

We also take a look forward to 2020 and discuss the most anticipated events that will see us enter the new decade.


I have added two levels so that this one item can cover all ESL learners. The first pack is aimed at beginners to pre-intermediate (A1-A2) learners and the second is for intermediate (B1+) and higher students.

In the preview you will find the entire product for the intermediate+ level students.


In part 1 there are a number of exercises within one main activity. There are a selection of photos of events from one of the years. The students try to guess what news story each photo is referring to. Then they read the review of the stories before trying to guess the year. There are ten of these in total to represent each of the years from the decade.

To incorporate English grammar there are exercises throughout the reviews that will test your student's knowledge. These includes questions on past simple regular and irregular, superlatives, connecting words, synonyms, antonyms, was/were and many more.

The first part finishes with 20 conversation questions to encourage a group discussion about the 2010's.


Part 2 starts with a look into the events coming up in 2020 with topics including politics, technology, sport and film. They include future exercises and language.

The second part concludes with ten conversation questions about the year ahead.
