Вступне слово ведучого або ведучих:
You know that tastes differ. It’s true when we speak about table manners and eating habits in different countries. For example, in Britain, you mustn’t lift your soup plate to your mouth. In Japan, however, lifting your plate to your mouse is a traditional way of drinking soup.
And in Japan you needn’t worry about making a noise when you drink it. It shows that you are enjoying the food. That’s not true in Britain.
So, we know a lot about Great Britain, the USA, Canada and other English-speaking countries.
Today you’ll know more about eating habits in other lands.
We’ll make a virtual “travel” to such countries as Brazil, the Philippines and Finland. So, meet bright Brazil. It’s the largest state in Latin America, which occupies almost half of the continent. Brazil is a magical land. This is not only the country of carnivals, football and samba, it is also amazing nature, amazing waterfalls, and, of course, unique cuisine. So, let’s get acquainted!
Матеріал для опрацювання
Whether at home or in a restaurant, Brazilians like eating with their friends and family. They never eat lunch at the office and they have dinner very late – at about ten o’clock at night.
Brazilians like small cups of strong coffee, at any time of the day. They don’t eat in the street or on the bus, and their never eat with their hands. They always use a knife and fork to eat, even for pizza or sandwiches.
And now not less exotic country is waiting for us. Sunny Philippines also have some eating peculiarities. Read about them. Pay attention to the word “snack” which means a kind of meal.
Many Filipinos have three meals a day with two snacks in between. Rice is a part of every meal – they even make desserts with rice and coconut milk. Filipinos like eating soup, meat, vegetables and a lot of different sauces.
Families usually eat together and they like to invite people to eat with them. Filipinos eat with a fork and a spoon, or with their hands. It’s polite to leave a little food on the plate at the end of a meal.
Слово учителя: And now we travel to frosty Finland.
Pay attention to the word “stall” which means a place where you can see sausages.
There are a lot of different Finnish dishes, such as smoked fish and hot soups, but fast food such as pizza and sausages are also very popular. In the streets there are stalls which sell sausages, Finland’s favourite food.
During the week, most families don’t usually have dinner together. Sometimes at the weekends they eat with their friends. They cook meals together, or each person makes and brings a part of the meal.
