In recipies task every country sent two popular recipies to other countries. Students from each country made food from the foreign recipies with peers, parents or relatives. The food making session was videotaped.
Tasks gave good opportunity to practice your presentation skills in front of the camera. Also pupils had to read the English recipe and translate it into your own language. That developes your food vocabulary. Speaking in front of the camera also developes your oral English skills. Because pupils were aged between 9-12 years, naturally younger students had more narrow vocabulary than older ones. Younger students needed some help from the parents. In this task it was lots of fun and you could spend quality time with your family and relatives, so it gave you opportunity to develop your social skills. The final prize came when you could taste exotic foreign food.
