Procedure (30-46 minutes)
I'm going to show them two photos ; healthy and unhealthy photos and ask the students what they are. I'll elicit the answers. I'll ask ' What can you see in the photos?' I'll elcit the food words.
Students will work in pairs to discuss the questions in exercise 1a using the photos. I'll give them 3 minutes to discuss with their partners and then elicit the answers. If they have any problem about vocabulary, I'll guide them.
I'm going to show some photos of blocking words in the text and let them guess the meaning of them. ( Diets, olive oil, portion, Mediterranean, dishes, herbs, spices ) I'm going to use body language to teach the word 'delicious'. I'll ask them to repeat after me and then one by one they'll pronounce the word. I'm going to write the word on the board , show the stress and parts of speech. I'll write a sentence using the word. Then they will work in pairs or groups( depending on the number of the students ). Each pair/group will read one diet and then I'm going to ask one student from each pair/group to tell us his/her reading text. I'm going to ask what they find interesting and different or similar to us.
Students will do exercise 2 which is for specific meaning. Students will match the statements with the three diets. I'm going to elicit the answers.
Students will work in pairs to do exercise 3. They are going to talk about their favourite food and food they don't like. Then they will play a food game. They will work in pairs and think of a vegetable or fruit and answer the questions of the other pairs. The other pairs will try to find the vegetable or the fruit.
