Students preparing food for a cooking show assignment
  • Learning

We began our food unit, as most language classes must when entering the world of food for the first time, with the acquisition of a large body of vocabulary. As a student, food is often an easily accessible unit; everyone eats food, and it can be fun to talk about one’s favorite food and its flavors.
