Lesson 15 Introduction to the holiday theme as well as food items in French

Lesson 15
Hello I have been away on holiday this week and I suspect that many of you will also be going on holiday soon.
The last lesson focussed on hobbies. Sunbathing and going swimming constitute seasonal hobbies for many people, especially those living in the sunshine. But how do we express beach vocab in French?
Listen to Llona Mitrecey singing about holidays in Italy:

Look for the following vocabulary in the lyrics:
On a trip
A lot of luggage
Summer
An adventure
Towns
Holidays
In Italy
Noise
Ice-creams
Friends
Beach
Blue Sky
Holidays
Next Year

The answers will be given in the next blog.
In the meantime, here is some more vocabulary to do with food to support the lesson on the partitive articles which we covered recently.On holiday we might want to try different food. Sometimes, the dishes are just presented differently but the ingredients are ones we are already familiar with.
Look at the photo showing Spanish paella. Can you make out what the ingredients are? They are listed on the photo.
If you are intermediate level, you may wish to translate the phrases.
Answers in the next blog.
