Lesson procedure

- Let’s start out lesson with the riddle.

What is greater than God?

What is more evil than devil?

Poor people have it.

Rich people need it,

If you eat it

You will die.


 There is one thing in our life that we can’t do without. Otherwise we’ll simply die. It’s food, of course, which plays an important role in our life. First of all it keeps us alive. But it can also make us feel good, bad or sick.. Some people pay very much attention to it and some practically neglect it. But one thing is obvious: food is an essential part of our everyday life.

The theme of our lesson is “Food. The national cuisine of Ukraine, Britain and the USA” Today we are going to talk about food, discuss the problems of healthy food and speak about national cuisine of different countries.


 Look at these quotations (on the blackboard) and say: you agree  or disagree with them. Why and why not.

“We may live without poetry, music & art;
We may live without conscience, and live without heart;
We may live without friends;
We may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live without cooks.”

                                                                          Owen Meredith

 “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
