Food

Activity 1

Maggie is pricing up the items in her shop. Can you tell which foods she says before she puts a price on them?

Did you catch the foods she mentioned? If not don’t worry - here’s the main ones to remember (for the activity sheet):

Language in this activity

When you’ve practised these (and any others that you can remember from the video) you can print off the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, you can draw your own pictures and write the words on some paper.

Activity 2

This video shows some more foods for you to learn.

Have a go at saying these. Here's a table to help with pronunciation:

Once you’ve practised them, print off the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. (You’ll have noticed that this video includes some prices too - can you remember the numbers you learnt a few weeks ago? If so, try saying the prices in Spanish too!) If you don’t have a printer, you can draw your own pictures, or just write the prices next to the food names.
