Meals and Meal Times in English-Speaking Countries Years ago a student of mine came up to me after class, looking quite perplexed. She asked, ''Why do some English people eat dinner at midday or very early in the afternoon?'' That's a good question indeed, and the answer to it is not an easy one. Many foreigners find the terminology and customs that accompany eating in English-speaking countries quite baffling. In the 16th century, the three meals of the day were breakfast, dinner and supper. Breakfast Breakfast is the first meal of the day. Brunch Brunch is a meal that is usually eaten in the late morning. Dinner and Lunch In various English-speaking countries, dinner is the name of the main evening meal. Luncheon or Lunch Luncheon is a very formal and rather old-fashioned word for lunch. Tea Tea can be a light meal eaten in the afternoon. Supper Centuries ago, supper was the lighter meal following dinner because in those times dinner was the main meal of the day. The Use of Articles and Prepositions with Meals I have breakfast every day.

Construct-a-Word Construct-a-Word provides a simple, engaging way for students to generate dozens of different words by first choosing an ending (for example -an, -ed, -at, -op) and then adding a beginning letter or blend. When a correct word is created, the word is stored in a Word Bank where students can read and review their words. For each ending, Construct-a-Word prompts students to create between 6 and 14 different possible words, adding an element of fun and discovery. It uses animation and sound to guide students through the steps of creating words, and employs prompts that are clear and easy to master. For ideas of how to use this tool outside the classroom, see Construct-a-Word in the Parent & Afterschool Resources section.

It also includes implicit messages, whether intentional or not, which are expressed through non-verbal behaviours. Non-verbal communications include facial expressions, the tone and pitch of the voice, gestures displayed through body language (kinesics) and the physical distance between the communicators (proxemics). These non-verbal signals can give clues and additional information and meaning over and above spoken (verbal) communication. Non-verbal Messages Allow People To: Reinforce or modify what is said in words. Learning the Language Many popular books on non-verbal communication present the topic as if it were a language that can be learned, the implication being that if the meaning of every nod, eye movement, and gesture were known, the real feelings and intentions of a person would be understood. This, of course, is absolutely true. The Cultural Context Warning!
