Adjectives with food

1. Sweets
Sweets satisfy the desire for sugary delights in the human diet. The experience and joy of eating a sweet is often so deep, that it has to be shared with others. Here are some words that help to create clear descriptions of sweets for readers and listeners.

Syrupy: sweet with a syrup-like texture. Sweets that are in thick, liquid forms, are often described as being syrupy.
Example: Her mom made us some syrupy sweet toffees the last time we went to her house for a sleepover.

Sugary: an intense sweet taste that replicates the taste of sugar.
Example: The abundance of sugary candies at the party answered the call of my sweet tooth.

Chocolaty: a chocolate flavored sweet.
Example: The doughnuts had a rich chocolaty

Minty: having a peppermint flavor.
Example: The minty chewing gum made me feel less drowsy during the long sermon.

Nectarous: Resembling nectar in texture and taste. Nectar is the sweet liquid extracted from certain plants by bees and some birds.
Example: The donuts had a nectarous filling that made eating them a pleasure-filled experience.

Global Warming in brief - by National Geo

What Causes Global Warming?

Scientists have spent decades figuring out what is causing global warming. They've looked at the natural cycles and events that are known to influence climate. But the amount and pattern of warming that's been measured can't be explained by these factors alone. The only way to explain the pattern is to include the effect of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted by humans.

To bring all this information together, the United Nations formed a group of scientists called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC. The IPCC meets every few years to review the latest scientific findings and write a report summarizing all that is known about global warming. Each report represents a consensus, or agreement, among hundreds of leading scientists.

One of the first things scientists learned is that there are several greenhouse gases responsible for warming, and humans emit them in a variety of ways. Most come from the combustion of fossil fuels in cars, factories and electricity production. The gas responsible for the most warming is carbon dioxide, also called CO2. Other contributors include methane released from landfills and agriculture (especially from the digestive systems of grazing animals), nitrous oxide from fertilizers, gases used for refrigeration and industrial processes, and the loss of forests that would otherwise store CO2.

Different greenhouse gases have very different heat-trapping abilities. Some of them can even trap more heat than CO2. A molecule of methane produces more than 20 times the warming of a molecule of CO2. Nitrous oxide is 300 times more powerful than CO2. Other gases, such as chlorofluorocarbons (which have been banned in much of the world because they also degrade the ozone layer), have heat-trapping potential thousands of times greater than CO2. But because their concentrations are much lower than CO2, none of these gases adds as much warmth to the atmosphere as CO2 does.

In order to understand the effects of all the gases together, scientists tend to talk about all greenhouse gases in terms of the equivalent amount of CO2. Since 1990, yearly emissions have gone up by about 6 billion metric tons of "carbon dioxide equivalent" worldwide, more than a 20 percent increase.

Effects of Global Warming

The planet is warming, from North Pole to South Pole, and everywhere in between. Globally, the mercury is already up more than 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius), and even more in sensitive polar regions. And the effects of rising temperatures aren’t waiting for some far-flung future. They’re happening right now. Signs are appearing all over, and some of them are surprising. The heat is not only melting glaciers and sea ice, it’s also shifting precipitation patterns and setting animals on the move.

Votes and Vowels: A Changing Accent Shows How Language Parallels Politics

Votes and Vowels: A Changing Accent Shows How Language Parallels Politics
By Julie Sedivy

There’s been a good bit of discussion and hand-wringing lately over whether the American public is becoming more and more politically polarized and what this all means for the future of our democracy. You may have wrung your own hands over the issue. But even if you have, chances are you’re not losing sleep over the fact that Americans are very clearly becoming more polarized linguistically.

It may seem surprising, but in this age where geographic mobility and instant communication have increased our exposure to people outside of our neighborhoods or towns, American regional dialects are pulling further apart from each other, rather than moving closer together. And renowned linguist William Labov thinks there’s a connection between political and linguistic segregation.

Vocabulary games

10 Games to Play with any Vocabulary Words
These vocabulary games are the perfect addition to your centers or word work! I have provided free printables and game pieces!

BINGO

Each student will need one of the free game boards. If you want to be able to use them over and over, laminate and have students use dry erase markers. Otherwise, they can use any writing utensil. Provide a long list of vocabulary words. Students will need 24 words, so it is a good game to play at the end of the unit to review. Students will write a different word in each box. They decide which words and what order to write them in so that every board is a little different. When you are ready to play, give students a definition. Students determine the word. If they have that word on their board, they can cover it or colour it. The first person to get five in a row is the winner.
You can download the game board for free by clicking HERE.

MEMORY

To play this game, you will need cards with vocabulary words and cards with their meanings. You can make them with index cards or you can use the free editable card template provided below. Students shuffle up the cards and place them face down in an array. Students take turns flipping two cards. If they flip over a match- the word and its meaning- they keep the two cards. If they are not a match, they flip the cards back over and it is the next person’s turn. Play continues until all of the cards are gone.

You can grab these FREE editable word cards by clicking HERE.

Luke talks politics

некоторое время назад мне посоветовали Luke’s ENGLISH Podcast :heart:
я об этом уже писала
небольшая выборка про политику (все подкасты можно скачать!):

эпизод 82. Voting / Elections / Politics / Government (40 мин)
In this episode Luke teaches lots of vocabulary for talking about voting, elections, government and politics. This episode contains some seriously useful and important terms about politics and the way the government runs here in the UK.

эпизод 268. UK General Election 2015 (Part 1) (1 час 5 мин)
This podcast contains everything you should know about the general election which is happening across the UK this Thursday 7 May 2015. This could be a long episode, but I’m so determined to cover the whole story that I don’t mind how long it takes. I feel it’s worth spending some time to cover this topic in enough detail to make it genuinely interesting and informative. I’m not there in the UK at the moment, so I’m not able to take part in the discussions, or watch all the coverage on the TV, but I care about this a lot and I’ve just got to get this stuff off my chest – which means, I’ve got a lot of things inside that I want to tell you about. This is an important election (like any election) and it’s interesting because we genuinely don’t know what’s going to happen, and the consequences of the different outcomes could be quite drastic.

эпизод 269. UK General Election 2015 (Part 2) (1 час 3 мин)
Welcome back to Part 2 of this episode which is all about the UK general election which is taking place in a couple of days on Thursday 7 May 2015. In this part we’ll hear statements by 7 leaders from 7 of the main parties in this election, we’ll consider exactly what they said, understand some of the vocabulary and key issues, and then look at the possible outcomes and predictions for the result of the election.

эпизод 270. UK General Election RESULTS (36 мин)

Про Brexit:
эпизод 346. Rambling on a Friday Afternoon (1 час 17 мин)
Watch out for some more phrasal verbs and idioms as Lukes shares a few more anecdotes about New York, talks a bit about politics (US elections, Trump, Mayor of London, Brexit), mentions Leicester City FC and rants about Google Adverts

эпизод BREXIT: Should the UK leave the EU? (1 час 20 мин)
Luke talks to his Dad about the UK’s referendum on EU membership. They discuss some of the main issues and arguments and give their personal opinions.

эпизод 352. BREXIT: Key Vocabulary and Concepts (1 час 40 мин)

эпизод 356. News / Football / Brexit / Events in the UK / Jo Cox (1 час 15 мин)
Some more news and views about the EURO 2016 football, the EU referendum and recent tragic events involving Labour MP Jo Cox who was murdered in England this week.

эпизод 359. BREXIT JOKES / EU REFERENDUM NIGHT (40 мин)
The EU referendum is happening tonight, so Luke wanted to record some of his stand-up material that he’s written about Brexit and make some predictions.

эпизод 360. THE DAY AFTER BREXIT (Thoughts and feelings) (50 мин)
Last night the UK voted to leave the EU. Here are Luke's thoughts and feelings.

эпизод 361. Getting things off my chest! (Part 1) Brexit / Football (1 час 10 мин)
эпизод 362. Getting things off my chest! (Part 2) Brexit / Football (1 час 5 мин)
a two-hour rant about the Brexit situation and the Euro 2016 competition.

эпизод 365. BREXIT: 3 Weeks Later (1 час 5 мин)
An update on the situation in the UK since the EU referendum three weeks ago. Listen to Luke's Dad give his comments and analysis. Some vocabulary is highlighted and written on the page.
