Mardi Gras

Before you say, “HAPPY MARDI GRAS” or celebrate ‘Carnaval’ ‘Fat Tuesday’ ‘Karneval’, etc.. Learn a little about what it is!

There are heaps of resources out there for you to find, so instead of just posting a bunch on information here,  I wanted to provide some of the full resources for you to check out. Some are ESL lessons, others news documents, so you’ll have quite the variety to read about and practice some English skills! You’ll even learn a little local and international culture!

Tell me a bit about how you’re celebrating today, too!
