After a long summer, which has seen us working on two different continents, All at C are back with a lesson-plan courtesy of Japanese technology. It’s real and apparently it’s edible, but you and your students will have to judge for yourselves…
MAIN AIMS using food preparation and instruction-giving vocabulary, practising speaking and writing
SUITABLE FOR teens and adults, pre-intermediate (A2) and above
We’re back at All at C after a very long Christmas break! We’ve been kept very busy with different projects but hope to make up for our lack of updates over the next couple of months. So, to start off, and given that it’s still winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, we thought this amazing (but real!) gym class from Sweden would be topical.
MAIN AIMS practise verbs and expressions of movement / functional language of advice and instructions / writing / listening for specific information
SUITABLE FOR teens and adults, upper-intermediate (B2.1) and above
Scrambled eggs on toast, one of our favourite comfort foods. Almost everyone has an opinion about the best way to make them and our final egg-themed post of the month gives students the chance to share theirs. Before that, they use the information in the infographic above to write the instructions for making scrambled eggs English-style or French-style and then compare with the method suggested by Jamie Oliver in the video below.

Sticking to the theme of paper, while at the same time using the fantastic website at Videojug, this latest lesson is a chance for the origami enthusiasts to show off. There will be planes and swans and a close look at the language of instruction, both written and oral.
