Potluck: Exploring American Foods and Meals. Vocabureader Workbook 2.
Clark, Raymond C.
The workbook is an English vocabulary development text that focuses on words associated with preparing, serving, and eating food. The special vocabulary is presented in twelve readings. The reading passages are written in repetitive style so the student can learn each word's definition through context. Each selection describes a typical North American meal, with key vocabulary in boldface type. Illustrations, recipes, and menus are included to provide clarification and additional information. Five exercises, progressing from easy to more difficult and designed to explore forms and meanings of the key words, follow each reading selection. An answer key, index to foods, and index to key words are appended. (MSE)
