The Amazing world of food, by Carol Read, is a project for Young Learners designed to simultaneously build up learners’ language skills and knowledge of food. The project is divided into six lessons and leads to a final outcome of children creating a group e-zine/magazine with the title ‘Amazing world of food’.

In each lesson, children find out about different aspects of the world of food and produce a piece of work to include in their e-zine/magazine. This includes step-by-step notes for teachers and two worksheets for students.
