I’m a chef.
Imagine that you are a chef in a restaurant. Tell about your famous dishes. Explain what ingredients a recipe includes.
For example: Salad. You need: 2 cucumbers, 1 tomato, 2 sweet peppers, 1 onion, some olive oil and a little salt. First wash a few vegetables. Then peel a few cucumbers, an onion and sweet peppers. After that slice a tomato and cut sweet peppers, cucumbers and onion. Add some olive oil and a little salt. Mix and serve with dill or parsley.
I’m a star.
Imagine that you are a star (actor, actress, singer etc.). Tell journalists about your diet. What do you eat (don’t eat)? What do you like (don’t like)? How often do you eat? What do you eat for breakfast (lunch, dinner)? Do you eat healthy or unhealthy food? What is useful for you? Give recommendations for young people what they can eat.
For example: I am a singer. I have got a lot of concerts. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables. I don’t eat any fast food. I eat some low-fat meat. I eat some fish. I drink a lot of water. I don’t drink any soft drinks. Young people should eat healthy food.
I have a restaurant.
Imagine that you have a restaurant (café). Tell about it (name, size, where it is etc.). What can people eat in your restaurant? What dishes are the most popular? What can people drink in your restaurant? Make an advertisement.
For example: I have got a restaurant. Its name is “Rizzoli”. It is very big and comfortable. It is in the centre of the city. You can eat delicious dishes here. The most popular dishes are meat pancakes and vegetable salads. You can drink coffee, tea, soft drinks and juice in my restaurant. Come and enjoy your day!
Imagine that you are in the grocery shop. Divide the group into pairs. One student is a capricious customer, another is a shop assistant. The customer wants to buy something, but often changes his/her mind.
