March 2021 – St. Patrick’s Day Activities

Dear Teacher,

St. Patrick’s Day is on the 17th March and this year’s celebrations will be virtual. There is now a dedicated page of Irish activities on Tune Into English, with Downloadable Worksheets, Roadshow activities, articles and Irish karaoke. Three traditional Irish song worksheets will be added in the coming days, as part of a digital toolkit provided by Marketing English In Ireland.

March’s New Downloadable Worksheet

The 13th March is Jewel Day! Regular contributor Maria Gulczynska, Ancona, has prepared a worksheet focussing on phonetics and pronunciation, as well as vocabulary.

Most of the worksheets have been written by your colleagues – perhaps you have prepared one and want to share it?

This is the ideal motivator for your students in these difficult times – you can watch video extracts from the show here, and see students’ comments here. I look forward to meeting you and your students virtually this year!
