February is a busy month for events which come with a lot of reading material, from the serious to the fanciful. Valentine’s Day (February 14th) is probably the most well-known and commercially celebrated date in February, with numerous articles available online (click here for one with cloze tests, comprehension and spelling exercises).
Chinese New Year’s day falls on February 19th in 2015 and again, there are numerous articles online (click here for the Sydney website for Chinese New Year’s celebrations). 2015 is the year of the goat, also known as the year of the sheep and/or the ram, and there is plenty of reading material available via Google.
