All things hideous...

I sat in on a great lesson this afternoon, about words to describe oddly shaped fruit. The lesson was based on this video, about a French supermarket which had decided to sell the fruit that the farmers usually had to throw away. There were a great variety of adjectives that the learners hadn't come across before. Ugly, horrible, misshapen, disfigured, ridiculous, unique, hideous, failed, repulsive, inglorious and my personal favourite, grotesque. Lots of food for thought for the learners today. The images of fruit hopefully will stick in the learners' minds along with some of these new words. Printing out some pictures and labelling them with appropriate adjectives, is a great way to learn new vocabulary.
The learners then had an interesting discussion about food waste-and perhaps we all could waste less food?
