At the end of last term, Sally’s Lower Intermediate General English class had a pavlova decorating competition. Pavlova is a traditional New Zealand dessert. In the competition, there were four teams. Their teacher Sally gave each team half a pavlova, cream, kiwifruit, strawberries, and some chocolate buttons. Their job was to make their pavlova look the best. No one was allowed to look at another group’s work until they were all finished. Everyone worked well in their teams and got lots of speaking practice through achieving the task together.
Sally says, “It was too hard to judge! They were all amazing. We enjoyed eating the pavlova. It didn’t last long!!”
It sounds like a great way to learn English while having fun!
Here are the students hard at work
Team 1: Sumika, Fernanda and Mint
Team 2: Victoria and Wawa
Team 3: Dream, Masami and Eleanora
Team 4: Takumi, Ivan and Roy
Yum… I’m not a *huge* fan of pavlova, but those ones look great! Well done on your competition, and I can see why Sally said it was too hard to judge… I particularly like the use of chocolate buttons… 🙂
