 In Student Travel and Activities

xmas gift ideasChristmas time! The time for giving, and we express that spirit by giving to loved ones. It is difficult to come up with unique gift ideas . Like many who are celebrating the season far from home, our students at TALK English Schools in the U.S.A. will be wanting to take or send home gifts – so here are some gift ideas that say something about their American experience.  With this in mind, we came up with recommendations. Some items listed will be no surprise, but we did find a few interesting originals that the folks back home could well appreciate.
