ESL Conversation Lesson: Sandwiches Around The World

ESL Conversation Lesson: Sandwiches Around The World



As this ESL conversation lesson is on sandwiches around the world, me and my dad tried out two funky sandwiches from a Korean convenience store, a PEANUT SPREAD HAM CHEESE sandwich and a CRUNCHY HAM POTATO sandwich (in the video above).

In this travel themed ESL conversation lesson, we'll talk about everybody's favorite topic - food! Specifically, I've prepared this lesson for discussing different types of sandwiches around the world. Just scroll down to the end of this blog and click the image if you'd like to download this free ESL conversation lesson pdf, and if you find it useful I've made a book format as well which includes 24 lessons. 

Lesson format includes: imagery, table topic, hypothetical table topic, guided conversation questions, two conversational activities, and a homework project.


Some conversation questions include: What's your favorite sandwich? Have you ever had any of the sandwiches below? How was it? Of the sanwiches listed below, which would you like to try most? Why so? What's your favorite type of sandwich? Why so? Is there any type of sandwich or food you had while travelling that you really disliked? Why so? Which country makes the best sandwich? Why do you think so? What's the most famous type of sandwich in your home country? Why do people like it?
