As I wrote last week, there is a new schedule for my videos on YouTube and my blog posts here on the website, and this week’s theme is food!
On Wednesday I am going to release a video explaining some wonderful food-related idioms and phrasal verbs which I am sure will be of interest to you.
Meanwhile, here is a quiz to introduce the topic. 😊
Do you know what these foods are called in English?
Check it out and learn more after you get the results!
Now let’s sort it all out:
- A clove is any of the small bulbs making up a compound bulb of garlic
- A prune is a plum preserved by drying and having a black, wrinkled appearance
- An aubergine (also known as an eggplant in USA) is an oval purple vegetable
- Yam is a potato-like plant grown in tropical areas, also known as sweet potato
- Plums are what prunes are made from, small, round fruit with a thin, smooth, red, purple, or yellow skin
- A bun is a small, round bread product
- A chop is a piece of meat often to be cooked with a bone in it
- A date is the fruit of different types of palm trees
- A marrow is a long round vegetable with a thick green or yellow skin, also known as summer squash in USA
I have noticed that a lot of students often struggle with these words and I hope this post was useful!
Anyway, do not forget – the video is coming on Wednesday, on the last day of July, 19.30 GMT+3
