Vocabulary related to cooking

1. Warm-Up – finish the game of pairs – 10 min

2. 1st activity – 15 min

– What dishes do they know? Have tasted? Liked/didn’t like?
– see if they know the names of some French dishes + regions
– use the PowerPoint presentation on regional dishes

3. cooking vocabulary game – 20 min

– in pairs
– I say a word related to cooking (it can be the name of a special ingredient, or a verb used in cookbooks like in this list) and each pair of students has to try to guess the definition and write it down on a piece of paper. I also do it but I write the right definition, then we mix up the papers and someone reads them all aloud. Then they have to decide which one is the most probable.

4. Ideas of shows – 10 min
