A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Do the vocabulary quizzes with the words from the conversation for more practice:
Talk about a party or dinner you have had with family or friends during the past month or so. Who came to the activity? What did you eat? Who prepared the food? What activities or games did you do at the party? How long did it last?
Use the Internet to search for a recipe on how to prepare a typical food from a country that interests you. What ingredients do you need to prepare the food? Is there a particular time of year or holiday when people eat this food? Does this food have any special meaning to the people?
