How is your Food and Restaurant Vocabulary in English? | The World is Your Oyster Federico is staying with us for 5 weeks. He arrived on Sunday from Tuscany. His parents are my former students. In October he will be going to university to study Law. Before then, he has decided to spend 5 weeks in the UK to learn and improve his English by working. He has a lot of bar and restaurant experience so it seems only logical that he look for work as a bartender or waiter. Federico’s level of English is Elementary to Pre-Intermediate. As I was going over the vocabulary, I realised that many of my students, even at higher levels, often lack food and restaurant expressions. The first thing I did with Federico was to go through the main FOOD GROUPS with some examples that you would find on a restaurant menu. “How would you like your meat, sir?” If someone wants a steak, they may ask for it to be cooked rare, medium-rare, medium or well-done. How is the food cooked? “Would you like some mineral water, sir?” The customer has the choice of still or sparkling water. “Here is the menu.

Food in Britain | LearnEnglishTeens Carmen: The Chinese introduced oriental food to Britain. But before the Chinese, immigrants from all around the world came to live in London. British people enjoy a huge range of food and flavours from other countries. This is Borough Market, London’s oldest food market. This is Italian cheese. Restaurants from all around the world can be found on most British high streets. But just what are the UK’s favourite dishes? On the Street: My favourite meal is Thai green curry. On the Street: One of my favourite meals is... cottage pie with peas. On the Street: My favourite food is... On the Street: What’s my favourite meal? Chef: This is a full English breakfast.

'What I Eat: Around The World In 80 Daily Diets' The different kinds of foods people eat around the world are endlessly fascinating. We at HuffPost Taste want to know what other countries eat for breakfast when we're shoveling down a bowl of cereal or enjoying our eggs and bacon. We're curious about the way people eat and which customs are taboo, and what people consider "healthy eating." We want to know what kids are eating for lunch and what governments are feeding their soldiers. Photojournalist Peter Menzel and writer Faith D'Aluisio have satiated our curiosity in a new way, breaking down what individuals from all over the world eat in one day. The book is arranged by the number of calories each individual consumes. This isn't the first book from husband and wife team Menzel and D'Aluisio. On choosing to lay out food consumption at the individual level, Menzel told NPR: "I want people to understand their own diets better — and their own chemistry and their own biology.

Ways of encouraging Students to communicate in English in the EFL classroom | Fab English ideas While L1 is becoming more accepted in the EFL classroom we still hope our students are communicating as much as possible in English. Here are some of the methods I use to ensure they speak English as much as possible: – Visual Reminders I have a laminated card with a Union Jack on one side and a French tricolour flag on the other (French is the native language of most of my students) which I stick on the board, if the Union Jack side is up then it’s English only. -Play Dumb “Sorry?” – Give them the necessary language You can’t actually expect them to communicate in English if they don’t know the necessary lexical items to convey what they want to say. Our school has a policy of weekly vocabulary lists and tests, so early in the school year I give them a list of useful phrases, “may I have a tissue?” There are posters up all around the classroom with useful classroom phrases, such as “What does XXX mean?” Be sure to pre-teach or revise all necessary vocabulary before an oral activity. -Rewards

Using video in the classroom – webinar by Stephanie Dimond-Bayir | Fab English ideas Yesterday I joined a great webinar on using video in class. I love webinars, it’s so handy to get a dose of CPD and motivation while curled up on the sofa, not to mention the handy ideas to use in class the next day – as I did today. This webinar was produced by the wonderful Cambridge English Teacher, if you are not a member then join today, not just for the webinars but also for the self study courses and the expert advice. As I find the best way to learn something is to explain it to someone else I’m going to tell you everything I learnt yesterday. Firstly Stephanie discussed some advantages of using video in class; students retain information more easily, they are enthusiastic about watching films, they are used to getting information from visual media, videos contain paralinguistic features to help comprehension, etc. Stephanie’s LOTS ideas included the following; HOTS included: Predictions : -draw on outline on the board (trace a screenshot from the DVD on your laptop.

Recycling vocabulary | Fab English ideas Recycling vocabulary Teaching young learners involves a constant search for new ideas on reusing vocabulary in class. I try and start every lesson by asking students to recall words from last lesson, today I wrote up the words they called out and then asked them to come to the front to draw the images… …then I wiped off the words and asked the students to label a picture that someone else had drawn. Simple, quick and fun! Please share your favourite ways of recycling vocabulary. Like this: Like Loading...
