初二第15单元 What do people eat? Lesson 60
Step 1 Revision
1 Revise either... or... by saying, Either I'm at home, or I'm at school. Then ask, What two places are you at usually? Help the students to answer, Either I'm at __ or I'm at ____. Now ask a second student about where the first student usually is, only use two different places. For example:
Student 1: I'm either at school or at home. Teacher: Where does Susan usually stay? Student 2: She usually stays either at school or at home.
Practise neither... nor... in the same way. For example:
Teacher: Are you a doctor or a nurse? Student: I'm neither a doctor nor a nurse. I'm a student. If time permits, you may use this as a drill.
2 Revise the food items in this unit.
Step 2 Presentation
In small groups role-play a parent and a son / daughter who has a foreign friend over for dinner. Remind the students to use the phrases from SB Lesson 57, Part 3. Get several of the groups to share their role-play with the rest of the class.
Step 3 Read and act
SB Page 4, Part 1, Speech Cassette Lesson 60. Books closed! Ask What are they eating for dinner? Play the tape. Check the answer (fish and chips). Play the tape again, students listen and repeat.

SB Page 4, Part 2, Listening Cassette Lesson 60.
Listening text 1
"What's for dinner?" Max asked.
"I'm going to have some fish," Frank answered.
"Fish? I don't want fish. I had it for lunch. Let's go to a restaurant this evening," Max said.
"That's a good idea," Prank answered.
So Max and Frank went to a restaurant. They sat at a table and a waiter came to them.
"What would you two like?"
"I want some roast beef. What do you want, Frank?"
"I'd like chicken with onions," Frank said.
"I'm sorry," the waiter said. "We have neither beef nor chicken. This is a seafood restaurant. We have some nice fresh fish and other seafood."
Fish and chips, and Chinese take-away food are very popular in England, but they are less popular in the USA. In the USA, people like take-away food, too, such as fried chicken, pizza and so on. But the most popular kind of take-away food is the hamburger. It's bread with chopped beef in it. Very often there is cheese and a kind of tomato sauce in it. Hamburgers are delicious. They are not only very popular in the USA, but in many other countries as well.
The answers are: 1B; 2C; 3C- 4A
Step 5 Read and act
Note: In American restaurants, one doesn't usually ask for coffee at the end of the meal. The waitress / waiter will ask the customer if they would like coffee. Also, in an American restaurant, most times, the bill is laid down on the table at the end of the meal, so that customers don't have to ask for it. In England one must ask for coffee at the end of the meal. One must also ask the waitress for the bill.
SB Pages 4-5, Part 3, Speech Cassette Lesson 60. Play the tape while students listen and repeat. Then in groups of three, have the students read and act out the dialogue. Choose several groups to perform their dialogue for the class.

There can be meat such as pork or beef or vegetables inside dumplings. In the south part of China along the Changjiang River, people eat much fish. In Shanghai the food is sweet. But no matter where you are in China, the food is always delicious.
