Description
In this activity, the students learn about similarities and differences between languages, by focusing on chocolate and desserts.

The activity is designed for students with light mental disability (12-16) but can also be used in mainstream education (10-14).

The activity is divided into seven parts.

1. The students learn about the word “chocolate” in different languages.

2. To six of the languages, the participants now try to find the matching countries on a map.

3. The student have to look for words in a frame. The hidden words are the same as in 1.

4. The students read a multilingual text about the origin of chocolat.

5. The class is divided into groups and plays a quartet game. The challenge is to pronounce the desserts written on the cards in different languages (French, Czech, Spanish, Dutch, Hungarian, Arabic, Swedish, Turkish, Italian, Romanian and Portuguese).

6. The students are asked to write down words related to this lesson in English, their L1 and any other language they might know. They compare the different writing systems.

7. Using a computer, the students create a word cloud with all the words they associate with chocolate.

Duration: 3x60
