This lesson plan includes tasks on food-related words and a lot of activities for talking about food. Your students will also watch a video about dishes from different countries and discuss their eating preferences.
WARM-UP & VIDEO
The lesson starts with a warm-up activity in which students discuss if they agree with three quotes about food (e.g. You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.). Then, they match seven questions related to food with answers. The questions contain vocabulary useful when talking about food (e.g. ingredient, cuisine, flavour). After that, students have to answer the questions from the previous exercise in pairs. Next, as a lead-in to the video, students predict people’s opinions about countries with the best food. They watch the video to see if their predictions were accurate. Afterwards, students read six sentences, and during the second watching they decide which places the sentences are about (e.g. Italy, the Middle East region). This part of the lesson ends with a short speaking activity in which students share their views on different cuisines.
VOCABULARY & TALKING ABOUT FOOD
In this part of the lesson, students look at a list of dishes (e.g. kebab, ratatouille, sausage roll) and try to choose ones mentioned in the video. After that, they read seven descriptions and match them with the dishes from the previous exercise. Next, students have to look at the descriptions again and find words for three categories: taste, ingredient, how it is cooked. The words matching the categories include: salty, soy sauce, baked, etc. Then, students should add one more word to each category. The lesson ends with an exercise in which students spend some time talking about food. They answer questions about different kinds of dishes, cuisines and flavours. They also discuss which of the dishes mentioned in the lesson they have tried or would like to try.
