Recently a friend suggested I write an English lesson about inferior food being sold in Central and Eastern Europe. In other words products of lower quality, or the same product - but the contents having lower quality inside the package.
How can this be possible? Believe me it is! I live in Slovakia and I hear this story time and time again from my students and friends.
Many Slovaks like to go to Austria to go shopping. Why? Because food is cheaper, and of better quality.
Article quiz: 1) Name three inferior goods. 2) What does ‘utter poppycock’ mean? 3) Name three countries. 4) What does ‘Ivory Towers’ mean? 5) Name the former Eastern bloc countries listed in the article. -- Roleplay: One of you is the interviewer. The others are one of the following people. You are in the Discussion FM radio studio in London. Today’s interview is about: Food scandal in Eastern Europe – lower quality than West Europe. 1) Someone from Eastern or Central Europe. 2) Someone from West Europe. 3) Someone from Asia. 4) Someone from North/South/Central America. -- Discussion, Grammar, Listening, Etc.
