February is Black History Month in the U.S. and Canada. It is a time to remember some of the greatest leaders in African-American history, who fought for racial equality and civil rights. As studying a foreign language means also studying its culture, I celebrated Martin Luther King Day with my students. I used the material and activities below, practising student's reading, listening and writing skills.
I also used this M.L.K. biography from Biography Channel as a listening exercise.
Happy Black History month!
