Teachify Teacher Chit-Chat
Academia de inglés
Hello everybody and welcome back to our monthly teacher chit-chat. Today Lewis, Jack and Mickey have had a chat about food. At first, we weren’t sure what to focus on, given that we have discussed a variety of subtopics related to food in class this month.
As a result, we made the decision to come up with four or five ‘interesting’ questions that had something to do with food and put them in a pile in the centre of the table. Here is what the Teachify teachers spoke about. Make sure you watch the video and learn some English!
As you’ll see when you watch the video, we took it in turns to pick a question from a pile and ask for a response from each teacher. If you’re anything like us, I’m sure you would be able to natter on for hours on end when the topic of food comes up.
That being said, we challenge you to watch the video the first time without looking about the explanations of key vocabulary below. Once you’ve done that, review the difficult terms we have provided explanations for and then give it another go.
