Fast Food


Louise Reynolds


GRADE LEVEL: SHS 1st years, middle level
TIME: 45 minute lesson depending on the level
MATERIALS: Hand-outs, flash cards, karuta cards




To learn new vocabulary and be able to order food fluently using fast food vocabulary




1. Put fast food flashcards on blackboard and check what vocabulary students know and teach new vocabulary with emphasis on not using katakana English ( ice cream, cola, hamburger etc).


2. Ask students to make groups of 4. Play karuta game with fast food vocabulary

1) students look at pictures, ALT calls out food vocabulary in English.

2) students look at words JTE calls out in Japanese.

3) students match words with pictures and memorise spelling


3. Using worksheet 1 ask students to write words under pictures from memory.


4. Using worksheet 2, ask students to repeat dialogue and vocabulary after ALT then make pairs and practice dialogue quickly. Ask students to memorise dialogue and vocabulary in 3 minutes.


5. Using worksheet 3 do an interview activity where all students stand-up and talk to as many other students as possible in a short time. The waiter has to take the order down on the sheet provided.




Here there are many different activities you can do depending on how long you have, and how flexible your JTE is:


1. Students can make groups of different sizes and make their own role play of a fast food restaurant.


2. Students could create their own menus and dialogues for many different types of restaurants.


3. You could give students menus from around the world to help inspire them.




Although the vocabulary and dialogues were all very simple, English was used through-out the class and all students memorised vocabulary and dialogues with correct pronunciation… This was tested in the interview test at the end of the term.
