Give your beginning level adult ESL students some vocabulary to talk about the winter season. Adults like seasonal activities, but they don't want to do the same things their children do. This 30-card deck was made for them! No cutesy pictures--just real winter-related photos.
This deck is completely holiday-free. It is strictly seasonal.
In this deck, students will hear a winter-themed term or phrase and then select the correct image from a group of six images. There is no reading or typing involved.
This deck will NOT appeal to young learners.
