P1. Yes, sure. I am fine.

T. And what about you, P2?

P2. I am all right.

T. Are you in high spirit, P3?

2.       Warming-up

T. Our today’s topic is “Welcome to the World of Food”. The main task is to demonstrate how magic and mysterious the world of known and unknown food is. Brainstorm why people eat?

(На інтерактивній дошці зображення схеми)



for keeping energy








for pleasure


People eat


to live








from force of habit



T. Explain in 2 or 3 sentences what is meant by each of these points.

Gr1. (for pleasure): Tastes differ. People really have different tastes. But some of them eat too much food. It’s bad.

Gr2. (for keeping energy): People need proteins, fats and carbohydrates, because they give us energy.

Gr3. (to live): We cannot live without food. Because it regulates body functions. But eating isn’t the main thing in our life.

Gr4. (from force of habit): If people eat from force of habit they become fatter.

T. What is the main point?

P. People eat to live.

T. Right you are! So the motto of the lesson is “Live not to eat but eat to live” (девіз з’являється на дошці). At the end of the lesson we’ll be able to distinguish healthy food from unhealthy one.

3.       Vocabulary practice

a)      T. Guess the words by their descriptions:

-          a room or place for cooking (kitchen);

-          one who eats no meat (vegetarian), etc.

b)      T. Let’s create a mind-map

(Pupils say in turn what associations come to their minds when they hear the word “food” and fill in the mind-map)

Ps. When I hear the word “food” I think of sweets, etc.















fast food











4.       Grammar play.

T.Let’s play! P1, be my helping hand! You are welcome!

P1. Look! I have two magic boxes for countable and uncountable nouns. Please, help me to put the words into the correct boxes. Say “I can count …” or “I can’t count …”

5.       Work in pairs

a)      The students decide whether these foods come from an animal or plant origin. If it comes from an animal, they decide if the animal lives on the land or in the water. And after that the students put the words into the correct boxes.

Crab, chocolate, kebabs, hamburger, chicken, salmon, apple pie, orange juice, pears, peas, lamb, steak, chips, lemonade, strawberries.

plant origin


animal origin (land)


animal origin (sea)






b)      The teacher asks the students to make a list of 5 different items of food and read it out. The other students must say:

—                  if they are good for us or not;

—                  why;

—                  how much we should or shouldn’t eat.


Fruit. Fruit is very good for us. It contains vitamins. We should eat a lot.

Biscuits. Biscuits are not very good for us. They are made with sugar. We shouldn’t eat too many.

6.       Speech skills

T. Make up statements using these situations

Model. You are at a restaurant. You notice that your glass is not clean. You stop a waiter who is passing by and say “I’d like a clean glass, please”. (“Will you please bring me a clean glass?”)

  • You want some salt for steak and the waiter is just going by. You call him and say...
  • You ordered a steak. The waiter has brought you something which you can neither cut nor eat. You say...

Application #1

Text for Listening

We all prefer home-made food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so we like to have our meals at home. But when we are at work, have no time or don’t want to cook we usually go to the cafes or fast food restaurants to have our lunch or dinner there. If we are very busy to have à quick sandwich with coke, tea or coffee in a café, we may take food away to have it later in an office, at home or in a car.

We use spoons and forks at home but very seldom knives. At restaurant we must remember about table manners, use knives and napkins, keep our elbows off the table. Food in restaurants is for all tastes" sandwiches with beef, ham or chick­en, fried potatoes and cucumbers, cabbage and carrots. For dessert we can have ice-cream with fruit like bananas, apricots or oranges.


Application #2

Text for Reading

American food is what immigrants bring to the country from all over the world. They say Americans live on hamburgers, hot-dogs, chips and coca-colas. Fast food is very popular in the USA.

Breakfast meal can vary from cereal and milk to eggs and pancakes or French toast (slices of bread dipped in an egg and milk batter and fried).

Lunch tends to be a lighter meal — a sandwich, yogurt, or a light entrée.

Dinner includes a main course of meat, poultry or fish, accompanied by soup, salad and vegetables.

Brunch, a common Sunday meal served between 10.00 a.m. and 2.00 p.m., is really a combination of breakfast and lunch. There is a wide variety of foods, de­pending on which type of restaurant you go to. Some American-style restaurants have a typical menu.

Soups are French onion, chicken, vegetable and soup of the day. Salads are regular.

Main courses are steak, fried chicken, fish, hamburgers, pasta and pizza:

Hot and cold sandwiches are combinations of ham, turkey, roast beef, chick­en, tuna or egg salads etc. served between two slices of bread.

Beverages are coffee, tea, soft drinks, mineral water and iced tea.

Desserts are cakes, ice-cream, frozen yogurt, fruit etc.

Americans eat out often. Fast food restaurants-have wide popularity. There are two types of restaurants in the USA, fast food and full-service restaurants. The style of fast food restaurant is much like that of cafeteria. Patron go up to a counter to order their meal: hamburgers, hot chicken sandwiches, and pizza.
