They can tell you that the first thing you have in the morning is Breakfast. Then they get confused using the words, Lunch, Dinner and Supper!
Basically the difference is rather easy to explain. It all depends on how much food you eat! For example, for Lunch you can have a sandwich or something light, like a salad. Most working people have little time for a daytime meal , so what they eat is called Lunch.
If these people have lunch in the daytime, then they eat more in the evening and so it's called Dinner.
If instead they eat "light" in the evening, for example a plate of soup and some vegetables, then it's called Supper. Remember this word "supper" has its origins in the word "soup".
Dinner is the term used for when a person has a complete meal, including meat, vegetables, fruit, and dessert, so it doesn't depend on what time it's eaten.
Now that we cleared that up, let's add still another term, "Brunch" As you can probably already guess, it's a combination of breakfast and lunch, and it's usually had around 11 a.m. It's an abundant breakfast that takes the place of a real Lunch.
It might be a nice idea for the students to make up menus for each meal.
They will have to take a look at lists of food to help them with this.
Now let's talk
about ordering food in a restaurant.
"Would you like to see a menu, or do you know already what you want
there are many other questions that can be added.
When the noise in the classroom is due to students taking about their assignment, I consider it "good noise". Let them try out what they are learning and you'll be surprised at the results. Much of the class enthusiasm comes from the creative and helpful teacher.
A Nice Thought
