This week, Level 1 classes are learning the names of kitchen machines. When I introduced the word 'machine', I asked students if they knew the names of the 6 that we were studying. They didn't and were *super* excited to learn the names in English.
Tip for chefs: practice with your team by simply asking "What is this?" a couple of times. Students might not pick up on your question right away but with a couple of tries, they'll understand what you're trying to do. And they'll appreciate the gesture!
