Going Up Education

Enjoy our Thanksgiving ESL lessons completely free this November. Have fun learning about Thanksgiving turkeys, food, and traditions. Holidays like Thanksgiving are a great time to take a break from your normal ESL classes and have some fun with your students. 

These lessons still work on sentence structures, grammar, reading, and comprehension just like all of the lessons in the Going UP ESL Curriculum.
