Learn English by Cooking
Bell Poznan, Poland

'Learn English by Cooking' is an exciting and unique English language programme developed by Bell Poznan, Poland and was recently shortlisted for a British Council annual 'ELTon' award for innovation, where is was described by the judges as "....a lot of fun [with] real English and real learners using it in a context very different from the normal EFL classroom..."

By attending monthly classes on this innovative programme, students learn how to describe the cooking process, understand the recipes, name the tools and ingredients and use suitable vocabulary in discussing the cooking process with other students. Classes are filmed and then edited to DVD, allowing students to revise the whole process and practise English by watching the film and listening to it again at their leisure.
