Unit 7 : Countries Attractions English Lesson
Unit 7: Countries, Nationality, Attraction
- Teach children the names of countries and how to introduce themselves by their nationality. For those whose countries are not mentioned in the lesson, it provides an opportunity for them to start asking similar questions about their country of origin and nationality.
- The lesson also helps EFL/ESL young learners to not only learn the names of countries but to identify major attractions across countries of the world.
- After this English lesson, every learner should, at least, be able to introduce themselves by country and by nationality.
