Multicultural Bundle

Multicultural Bundle

I have created presentations about different aspects of living in harmony with other people from other nations. It is great for harmony day and also the International Day For The Elimination Of Racial Discrimination. I have included a range of different presentations of different countries around the world. You are able to compare and contrast lives in other places. I have included stories from India, as this is the largest ethnic minority in the UK, and I thought it would be nice to see the differences and similarities between the two countries. I have also included 2 presentations about the Brexit (Brexit Conversation Ideas and International Day For the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - which covers Britain pre- and post Brexit and its crime rates).

Housing discussion

Housing discussion

This is aimed at international students learning English. It contains 22 images of types of houses with their name underneath e.g. 'terraced house,' 'bungalow,' 'mansion' etc. It includes some unusual types of housing such as a 'canal boat,' 'treehouse' and 'lighthouse.' The images are intended to generate discussion around housing and students could be allocated a few pictures per group to discuss and then feed back to the rest of the class. Suggested questions for discussion are also included.The activity could be taken further to discuss issues such as housing policy in different countries and what governments are doing to ensure everyone is houses. It also lends itself to further research around the cost of houses in different countries and regions and the economics of renting versus buying, plus cultural differences around this.
