Teacher: Every nation has its customs and traditions. England is a country of old traditions. Today we are going to speak about one of them. Please look at the whiteboard, read some quotations and decide what tradition they are about.
(Pupils read quotations and discuss the topic of the lesson: I think…/In my opinion…/To my mind we are going to talk about ...)
Teacher: Yes, my dear friends! You are right! Today we will take part in a tea ceremony. Let’s start! Your home task was to find as much information about tea as possible. Now it’s high time to check your knowledge. Each correct answer costs 1 point.
Teacher: Great job! I’ve prepared cards for you with English idioms about tea. Some idioms in your card have Russian equivalent, others don't have. To find the meaning of the idioms you have to listen to your opponents very attentively. (Each team makes and plays dialogues, or makes short stories with the idioms)
Teacher: Now, let’s check if you have managed with this task. (Slide 17). Do you like cook show? Have you ever taken part in it? No? Would you like to try? I need two persons from each team. Here the cards on my desk with the names of tea and their recipes. Choose a card, read the recipe and make the tea! (Данное задание проходит в форме диалога между участниками "кулинарного шоу" и учителем/ участниками "кулинарного шоу" и учениками)
First, you have to boil the water - don't just heat it, boil it. Second, add the boiling water to the tea bag, not the other way round. - Putting the water in the cup and adding the bag to it - is a recipe for disaster. Unless the water is at boiling point when it makes contact with the tea, the tea will never properly brew.
Make sure the cup or pot is nice and hot before you start. If necessary, rinse it out with near-boiling water. And keep it covered while the tea is brewing.
Leave the bag in the water for at least two minutes - longer if you like your tea strong. And for goodness sake, resist the temptation to dunk. Just leave the bag alone until the drink is ready! Add milk and sugar to taste.
Add one teaspoon of tea per cup of tea to the teapot, plus one for the pot.
Add the boiling water to the teapot, put the lid on and cover the teapot with a tea cozy.
Let the tea steep for three to five minutes.
Pour the tea into each cup using a tea strainer.
Offer guests sugar cubes (or honey) and a slice of lemon or a small serving of milk.
Teacher: Well. Do you like tea? How many times a day do you drink tea? Everyone knows that tea is amazingly good for you. It can regulate your blood sugar levels, balance your hormones and help you sleep soundly at night. Let’s thanks tea with the help of Japanese poetry (Slide 18).
Teacher: Wow! You poems were great! So, do you know the rules of drinking tea in England? No? Let's watch and learn! (if pupils know the rules, they answer the teacher's question. Possible answers: Englishmen sit straight, they don't put elbows on the table, etc. In this case the teacher could say "Let's watch and check if you were right)
Teacher: Now, it's time to drink tea! Mind the information you have learned after watching the film! Be polite and well-mannered! Help yourself! (While drinking tea the teacher asks pupils to express their feelings about the ceremony, Slide 19)
