Best of NTC: Summer’s coming

Teaching tip

Have a look at what fun you can have in summer in English-speaking countries around the world.


Whether it’s the wildly popular Glastonbury Festival or the more sedate Glyndebourne Festival, there’s a wide range of events going on this summer.

There’s tennis in leafy Wimbledon in south-west London, Glastonbury Festival in Somerset and Glyndebourne Festival in East Sussex. In Ireland you can enjoy the Rose of Tralee International (beauty) Festival and across the pond in the USA are the July 4th Independence Day celebrations and the Iowa State Fair. If you want to go Down Under, then what about the Brisbane Festival rounding off the summer in September?
