Your holiday - Lesson 16

This English vocabulary unit is focused on holidays! Talk about your last vacation and tell friends what kind of holiday it was (a “cruise”, a “package holiday”, a “city break” or maybe an “adventure holiday”), where you were and what you most liked doing while you were there. We’ll also look at words and phrases to talk about bad experiences (“travel insurance”, “cancelled flight”, “delayed flight”, “overcrowded” and “complaint”).
