Seasons Greetings

This Christmas page is intended to provide teachers of Modern Languages with useful links to resources for the holiday season. I hope that you find it useful. There is lots to do here. This page will be maintained throughout 2005. Many of my pages including this one have seasonal music playing - so why not put on your speakers, sit back and enjoy! And Season's Greetings to you and yours!

While you are here and before you cursour on try Pete's Chasse au Trťsor de NoŽl. Also try Pete and Ruth's Spanish Caza del Tesoro. Please try Pete's Weihnachtsschatzsuche. These activities will enable you to take your students of French, German and Spanish to the computer lab and explore the links on this page in more depth.
