T gets Ss attention. T nominates S: “what did we work on in last Saturday’s class?” - We talked about food! - We listened to a few speakers describing their typical meals - We worked with vocabulary for ways of cooking and describing food (bake, boil, fry, bitter, bland, chewy, crispy, etc.) - We listened to a short podcast about the future of cacao, bananas, and the problems caused by a shortage of bees - We watched a couple short BBC videos about the future of food (eating insects, etc.) Did we have any homework? [yes, doing some research on the top 5 fast food chains including some statistics]
