Teach a Recipe
This one is not just for general English courses but can also be used for business groups.
- After you have taught and discussed food and cooking vocabulary explain that you are going to teach them how to cook a specialty from your country.
- Start yourself by showing a picture of the dish. Ask the participants if they know it or have ever eaten it. Ask them to predict the ingredients. Add any they miss.
- Then describe the way the dish is cooked. If possible, bring in the utensils or at least photos of the utensils and pots etc. that are used.
- For a real treat, bring in a sample of the finished product.
I treat this as a kind of presentation and allow the participants to ask questions and even rate the presenter on things like, content and delivery as with business presentations.
1-1: This works perfectly for 1-1 lessons.
