Serving Up Activities for TV Cooking Shows.
Katchen, Johanna E.
This paper documents a presentation given on the use of English-language television cooking shows in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) and English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) classrooms in Taiwan. Such shows can be ideal for classroom use, since they have a predictable structure consisting of short segments, are of interest to most students, teach specialized vocabulary, use step-by-step directions, and illustrate the eating habits of the target culture. Using the television show "The Frugal Gourmet," the presentation provides a number of activities, keyed to segments of the show, that can be used with ESL and EFL students. Teachers can focus on developing general listening comprehension, specialized vocabulary, and speaking skills. An appendix contains a list of activities for students. (MDM)
