Happy Easter!


Happy Easter: For Christians, Easter is a deeply religious holiday, celebrating the day Jesus rose from the dead after the Crucifixion. It has also become a highly commercial event: full of chocolate rabbits, decorated Easter baskets, colorful eggs and the Easter Bunny who drops off baskets of treats in the middle of the night to delight children everywhere on Easter morning.

 On Good Friday in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, and India, hot cross buns are eaten.   A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top. The buns mark the end of Lent and different parts of the hot cross bun have a certain meaning, including the cross representing the crucifixion of Jesus, and the spices inside signifying the spices used to embalm him at his burial. They are now available all year round in some places. Hot cross buns may go on sale in Australia and New Zealand as early as New Year’s Day or after Christmas.

 “Hot Cross Buns” is an English language nursery rhyme, Easter song and street cry referring to the spiced English bun associated with Good Friday known as a Hot Cross Bun. You may have sung it as a child. The lyrics are:

Hot cross buns!

Hot cross buns!

one a penny, two a penny,

Hot cross buns!

Many people get together with family and friends for Easter dinner. If you have a friend or family member who would like to learn English, our series English for the Spanish Speaker would be a good choice for them. Each book in the series has eight lessons. In Books 1 and 2, the lessons are about every day activities. In Books 3 and 4, four lessons are about every day activities and the other four are about United States history or government. The print in the workbooks is large. The reading level in Book 1 is at the first and second grade level. The books get progressively more difficult. The reading level for Book 4 is at the fourth grade reading level. Each lesson begins with a vocabulary list, then a conversation, story, activity pages, and finally an answer key. The lessons are bilingual with the word lists, conversations, and stories presented in Spanish and English. The directions for the activity pages are in Spanish but the activities are in English. There are two dictionaries at the back of each workbook: a Spanish dictionary and an English dictionary. There is a CD available for each workbook so students can listen to the vocabulary lists, conversations and stories in English. This series has been very popular with adult education classes.
