- On May, when we finish the book we are going to prepare a BIG MULTICULTURAL SNACK. But before we have to learn to read ENGLISH RECIPES.
- In pairs you are going to receive a recipe which you will have to prepare. But first we have to read ENGLISH MEASURES. Let's practise 1 first.
In your recipes you will find this:
3 teaspoons (tsp) = 1 tablespoon (tbsp)
16 tbsp = 1 cup (c)
8 ounces (oz) = 1 c
2 c = 1 pint (pt)
2 pt = 1 quart (qt)
4 qt = 1 gallon (gal)
