Crunchy and savoury accompanied with a delicious cheesy flavour, your mouth is watering while your fumbling fingers attempt to separate the sealed plastic sheets that delay moments of utter and sheer delight!
And while you promise yourself that you will only eat a few, you know that putting a full stop to the flow of crunchiness in your mouth followed by a perfect and harmonious melting of substance; before sending it to be processed by your stomach, will be an ordeal almost impossible to fulfil.
Maybe the next time you visit your local supermarket, you’ll manage to ignore the display shelves, stacked with feasts suitable for almost every taste bud. Maybe you won’t even go anywhere near the forbidden area of aisles after aisles of colourful items that seem to capture your attention making themselves visible, even out of the corner of your eye!. But not now! This time you couldn’t resist hurling a bag or two in your shopping trolley (quickly before being spotted by anyone you knew), knowing that your diet will have to be delayed for a day or two and that some information will probably be omitted during your next nutritionist’s appointment. What can you do about it? You neither know nor care because all you feel like right now is to start chomping away on that worm-like, amber-coloured, salty-flavoured delicatessen.
Hello! Here’s a fun way to do speaking activity on Sport.
Click on the link and answer the questions once the wheel has stopped.
Are you interested in sport? Do you do any particular form of sport? What type of sport do you like doing? Maybe you’re a bit of a couch potato and you prefer watching your favourite team on TV instead of going out into the fresh air like some of my sporty friends; who never worry about what the weather will be like and crave to put on their trainers as soon as the weekend arrives. Others however, prefer to enjoy sport in a much different way, for instance by, supporting their favourite team and never missing any of the matches. Do you support a team? Which team? Have you ever dreamed of becoming a famous sportsperson? What do you think it takes to become very good in a sport?
