About this Event




‘To eat’ and ‘to drink’ – it’s impossible to find a language which does not have these two words.

For language teachers, discussion of food is an important cultural aspect of language education. Introducing the representative food of a country or region gives students essential cultural knowledge, but is there a better way to teach that avoids leading both teachers and students into stereo-typed cultural perceptions?

In this virtual workshop, four speakers specialising in Asia and the Pacific language, will talk about their experience and give their thoughts on teaching.
