The holiday season is pretty much over for most of us, so it’s time to get back into the old routines… One of which is breakfast. For some breakfast is an important meal, carefully compiled in order to provide energy and focus for the day ahead, for others it’s a blurry-eyed rummage in the fridge, a cereal grab-and-run.

In this blog there are several breakfast-themed activities to feed the brain and kick off the new academic year with a great energy. These are aimed at Intermediate level students.

In the Teachers Notes you’ll find 4 speaking based activities, ideal for groups and classes, each looking at different language points. There’s an Introduction using pictures as the starting point for discussion which will lead into any or all of the following activities: The class survey on breakfast habits practicing present simple Yes/No questions and comparative and superlative forms, the Create your own themed Breakfast Bar Menu activity for student to come up with delicious breakfast offerings and vote for their favourite, and finally a fascinating Reading Text on the history of breakfast (in the UK) with a vocabulary exercise, comprehension questions and discussion points.

Here are some useful supporting grammar resources you might want to use with these activities:
