Toyo Gakuen University Homestay English: Unit 7 - Cooking is easy

Today we are going to learn useful English for cooking. Many homestay families are interested in Japanese food. It's a good idea to teach them how to make a Japanese dish. First, let's watch a funny video about making sushi. What mistakes is Baka Tono making?

Next, here's a video in English about how to make tempura.

Now lets watch a video about making fish and chips.

This video downloaded from VideoJug

Let's watch again and do the tasks on your handouts. The tasks for this video were written by Paul Carr for his video podcast ESLpodTV. On the ESLpodTV website Paul Carr wrote the following about this video lesson:
