Lesson 2 Food and Drinks. Clothes

1. You are at your friend’s birthday party. Work in pairs. Make up and role- play similar conversations.

Model: He: Have some fish.

You: No, thanks, but can I have some ham and mashed potatoes, please? He: Of course you can. Here you are.

Use these words and word combinations:

bread, butter and ham / egg and cheese sandwich pork chops and salad / tomato and cheese pizza sausage and mashed potatoes/chips and fish pizza/roast beef biscuits/apple pie fruit salad/ice cream ice cream/cake tea/coffee juice/milk cocktail

2. Work in pairs. Role-play the dialogue with your classmate.

Student 1: May I go out?

Teacher: What’s wrong with you?

Student 1: I don’t feel well today.

Teacher: What’s the matter?

Student 1: I don’t know. Yesterday my friends and I ate at a fast food restaurant. We like to eat out there. Such restaurants are cheap, noisy and usually filled with people of our own age.

Teacher: Oh, yes. Teenagers have very unhealthy eating habits today. They eat more processed foods than ever before. How about home cooked meals in your family?

Student 1: You see, my both parents work outside home, so they don’t often have time to prepare healthy nutritious meals. Supermarkets today are filled with prepackaged, instant foods. We can get mashed potatoes in a packet (just add water), tinned or packaged soups, as well as a large variety of frozen ready made dishes such as lasagna, meat pies, and many others. Why waste time on cooking!

Student 2: No wonder that students feel bad today. We are lazy to cook healthy nutritious meals. Most of us skip breakfast or have just toast and jam or a doughnut or croissant. Lunch is also a problem. The most popular foods at lunchtime are snacks. These come in the form of burgers, fries, hotdogs or sandwiches, pizza or some other readymade food, which are usually on white bread with plenty of mayonnaise or butter.

Teacher: Right you are! You should always remember that «cookie today, crumb tomorrow» and «live not to eat, but eat to live».

3. Do as in the model. Start the sentences with the words in brackets.

Model: She can’t do this exercise herself. She needs help. (They) —

They can’t do this exercise themselves. They need help.

1. I can get dressed myself. I am not a baby. (We) —

2. You may sing yourself. Your voice is strong. (You) —

3. He may go to the shop himself. It is not dark outside. (She) —

4. You can’t do that yourself. You don’t know the rules. (He) —

5. Your brother can clean the room himself. (We) —

6. Her niece can cook a cake herself. (I) —

4. Look at the photos. Speak about people’s life (interests, job), status (social or professional position, e.g. Lawyers have a very high status in Ukraine).

5. Read the text. Find factors which influence people’s choice of clothing.


Without realizing it, the clothes we choose to wear tell other people a lot about us. We often judge people by the clothes they are wearing. For example, people dressed in expensive clothes are thought to be wealthy.

Our shoes, accessories and jewelery, all tend to create an impression of social class and personality. Similarly, our choice of clothing also depends on our age and whom we are influenced by. On the other hand, we do not always get the chance to choose our clothes. If we work as a nurse, police officer or firefighter, we have to wear a standard uniform. Lastly, our ideas of beauty are revealed by our style of dress. Dressing in a particular outfit might be a way of saying, «This is what I think looks nice and I believe it makes me look more attractive.» In conclusion, being more than just a way to keep warm, clothes reveal a lot about a person’s life, character and status.

6. Work in pairs. Agree or disagree with the points you’ve copied out.

7. Write approximately 10 sentences about clothes you wear. Tell about your favourite clothing style.
