Au Restaurant: Menus

Food-related topics in the FSL classroom always seem to be highly engaging with students, and certainly fit with our new focus on authentic and action-based tasks.

I have shared below some menus from restaurants in Quebec which are ideal for use with students in FSL programs.
  • Compréhension écrite: Making meaning, looking for mots connus, predicting, building the "need" of using vocabulary.
  • Production et intéraction orale: Ordering, expressing preferences, asking questions, discussing prices, changing orders, asking for substitutions, etc.
  • Intercultural:  A interesting idea is to use the Cantine Richard menu to discuss the use of 'franglais' et anglicismes.
