Halloween Vocabulary and Language Exercises

Halloween is one of the better holidays for a language lesson as it offers up a whole lot of fun, weird, and bizarre images and vocabulary. It’s great for picture-vocabulary matching and word-sorting  exercises,   It’s also a pretty interesting discussion topic and questionnaires and surveys could also work well.
