Recently I arrived at work, checked my mailbox, and found a memo telling me all about this year’s Christmas party. Date, time, etc.
There were a couple of interesting bits of information however. One, this Christmas party is going to have a theme (I thought Christmas already was a theme?). The theme is the 80’s, so this should definitely be interesting.
The second interesting tidbit is that I must come up with some sort of activity to entertain AND EDUCATE the (adult) students at the party.
Somehow, my first suggestion of “pin the participle on the phrasal verb” didn’t seem to fill my colleagues with excitement, so I need to come up with something else. For example, Sandhya will be playing Simon Says with them. It should be something the students can sort of float in and out of at will.
Also, it’s already been established that there will be cocktails around and cafeteria-sized thermoses of mulled wine in the teacher’s room, so the activity shouldn’t require sobriety…
I really don’t know what I’m going to do, but I need to let the organizer know ahead of time.
Help me out here folks – any ideas on fun things I can do with my students?Being the only American in the office, some sort of activity that shows off some American culture would be a plus, but not a requirement. Please post your ideas and suggestions and help keep some French people entertained this Christmas.
