Birthday celebrations are one of the most anticipated events in a child’s life: they can’t wait to get together with their friends and family, to have fun, to run around, and to get some well-deserved presents. For the youngest ones, these parties represent an opportunity to socialize and build new bonds with their classmates or neighbourhood friends. More importantly, these occasions and the joy they bring to children, can turn them into a great way to practice new vocabulary in English.
Still, it could be a bit difficult to practice some new words during a party, of course, children will be more focused on having fun than on learning!
