Interactive video lesson plan for: #9 English Mini Lesson - Black Friday

Activity overview:

Topic: Black Friday

Learn more about U.S. culture and in particular the American holiday shopping season. Listen to interviews with a native and non-native speaker. We will also study vocabulary related to retail and finance.

Levels: high intermediate to advanced

NOTE: I'm very sorry to announce as of January 2012 links to EnglishCafe will no longer be active due to the site closing. I was very lucky to be a part of that online community while it lasted. I'm also sorry for the loss of additional materials for learners.
