ESL Conversation Lesson: Travel To The Philippines And Video Trying Filipino Food In Korea
As this ESL conversation lesson is on travel in The Philippines I made the video above trying out some Filipino food products I nabbed where I currently live in South Korea. If you are just looking to download the free ESL conversation pdf feel free to scroll to the bottom of this blog.
In Korea, there are a few somewhat international areas where you can find international products so I headed there and picked up a few Filipino food items - a Peewee Sizzling BBQ Snack, Marty's Cracklin' Spicy Vinegar Chicharons, Cheez-it Cheese & Ham flavored Crackers, and a Guyabang Soursop Nectar to drink. I was pretty happy with the results! Watch the video above if you are interested in how the snacks taste or want to warm up your ESL students with a video clip.Now then, if you are looking for a travel themed ESL conversation lesson on travel in The Philippines I've provided a free ESL conversation pdf below so that you can further discuss this topic with your ESL students.

Some ESL conversation questions in the lesson include:Would you like to go to The Philippines? Why or why not? Which of the activities or destinations listed on the previous page is most appealing to you? Why so? Have you ever seen a volcano? Can you describe the scenery or what it was like? Was it impressive? Have you ever been a reveler? Maybe you've been to a music concert or festival? Are there any bungalows in your home country? What's your favorite type of accommodation when you travel in your home country? How about when you are abroad? Is there anything you'd be scared to do or try if you went to The Philippines? Why so?
reveler: someone who dances, drinks, sings, etc. at a party or in public, especially in a noisy way
Thee Philippines has plenty of long stretches of beaches which are perfect for fire shows and live music. If you are down to be or see a reveler head to Boracay.
terraces: each of a series of flat areas made on a slope, used for cultivation
Head to Banaue if you'd like to see the 2,000 year old rice terraces! They are an amazing sight.
active volcano/extinct volcano: a volcano that has had at least one eruption during the past 10,000 years/a volcano that has not had an eruption for at least 10,000 years and is not expected to erupt again in a comparable time scale of the future
Head to the island of Luzon if you are interested in seeing an active volcano!
island hopping: the activity of visiting several different islands in an area when on holiday
Head to Cebu if you've got plenty of energy. It's a great place to start off on an island hopping adventure.
bungalow: a house that usually has only one story (level), sometimes with a smaller upper story set in the roof and windows that come out from the roof
Head to the tiny Malapascua Island and rent a beach bungalow if you want to really immersive yourself in the culture and hangout with some of the locals.
