B1 / Intermediate60 minStandard LessonUnlimited Plan

VOCABULARY & DISCUSSION

In the warm-up activity, students brainstorm what gastro-tourism might be. Then, they read five statements about gastro-tourism and decide which of them are true. The statements are based on an international survey about travelling (e.g. the amount of money people spend on food while travelling, where most gastro-tourists come from). Students also have to explain why they think the statements are correct or incorrect. After the discussion, they look at seven pictures and try to work out the meanings of some words presented in them (e.g. cuisine, oriental, Mediterranean, Scandinavian). The words are going to be used throughout this gastro-tourism lesson plan. Then, students match the words with their definitions. Students also discuss some questions related to types of unusual food they have tried or would like to try. 

VIDEO & READING

Before the video, students look at a list of four ingredients and say what dish can be made using them. Then, they watch the video for the first time and check whether the dish presented in the video is similar to the one they described. The video presents an unusual way of baking bread. During the second viewing, students answer five comprehension questions. After the video, students discuss some questions about gastro-tourism. Then, they read four short texts about different food festivals around the world. They discuss which of them they would like to visit and also talk about other food festivals they know. In the last task of this tourism lesson plan, students create questions about gastro-tourism using the words from the lesson (e.g. gastro-tourist, ingredient, exotic) and discuss the questions with their partner.

Questions

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
