5 lessons


  1. The learners choose their favourite dish and write the recipe in pairs in L2. Then they prepare a shopping list and calculate the necessary ingredients (quantity). At this stage they may use a dictionary (online or physical) to look up foreign words. If necessary, they can also calculate the cost per person.
  2. The recipe is illustrated on a poster or A3 sheet, with large letters (the posters/A3 sheets are then presented during the video conference).
  3. Learners present the recipe in pairs using the poster. Each tandem presents the recipe in L2 and answers the questions of the partner class.
  4. The presented recipes are discussed again (which ingredient was used, what kind of dishes were presented, etc.). If necessary, it would also be a good idea to discuss healthy eating, local traditions or even the topic of "food waste".
  5. It is also possible to collect the recipes presented to create an intercultural cookbook.

* The documents are available in German, French and Italian.
