Different and unusual foods from around the world
Listening for detail
Using the vocabulary from the listening to describe taste and texture orally
Procedure (34-51 minutes)
Start by giving students some snacks to taste and ask them how the foods taste. Write the adjectives on the board as they say them, and ask them an example of a similar taste. Try to drill the words instead of saying them right away.
Deal the HOs with pictures on them with a vocabulary sheet next to it. Pair/group the sts and let them discuss about what they see and stick the bigger versions on WB in the meanwhile. Ask them to guess how the food would taste in the pictures according to the adjectives given.
Pair the sts, introduce Exercise 2 and explain the class how to do it. The listening takes 2:02 mins, ask the class if they would like to listen once more. Write the answers on the board.
Mingle the sts in the classroom for Exercise 3 as pairs or groups, and let them discuss.
Pick the pictures from the board and draw the chart from Exercise 1 in Vocabulary and Speaking. Group sts to do the exercise together and compare their answers. Then check the answers together.
Describe one or two items from exercise 2 and describe them for students so they could guess what you mean. Then mingle students again and tell them to pick one food from the chart to describe it to their partner.
If time left, ask students about their best and worst food experiences. Show them some pictures from Turkish cuisine, first ask them if they like it then ask why it would taste weird to other cultures. Give examples if needed.
