Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick's Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint's day in the world.

Saint Patrick's Day was also one of the festivities we included in the course "Learning and Teaching English celebrations" that is currently taking place in our CEP. Thomas Walter, language assistant at EOI Córdoba, dealt with it during the last session of this course. (see the rest of festivities we have already talked about)

This year Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated on 17th march and here you are some teaching ideas to celebrate it with your students:
