English is Fun through Cooking

On Dec 14 2016, more than 20 S1 students took part in a special English speaking lunchtime activity on group cooking at the Cookery Room. The activity, which was co-organised by the Language Across the Curriculum Committee and the Home Economics Department, aimed at strengthening students’ communication skills in English through cooking activities. In groups of 4-6, students learnt to prepare salmon rillettes sandwiches. Most participants were enthusiastic about making the food and they paid close attention to the cooking demonstrations performed by the senior form students.
