Class Experience

The three celebrations that together make Christmas.
I lived in Belgium and so I have seen the Sint Nikolaas celebrations for myself. I speak Dutch so I can pronounce and explain the meaning of the names of the celebrations.
The learner can bring a present from a previous Christmas and/or their wish list for Santa Claus.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will avoid talking about Zwarte Piet due to the current conversations around his origins. I will simply refer to the friends of Sint Nikolaas.
