Instructional Ideas

  • Use as a warm-up activity in a vocabulary lesson
  • Invite class members to create posters of their own favorite foods
Classroom Considerations

  • Clarify to English learners that many names of foods aren't in English, as they are not native to America, but are still part of the English language (e.g. pasta, couscous)
  • Includes spelling and pronunciation of each word in both British and American dialects; the spelling is the same but different pronunciations may be confusing for beginners
Pros

  • Quiz checks for understanding immediately after the video
  • Includes foods from many different cultures
Cons

  • Worksheet does not load
