Learners read about various cuts of beef and the methods of preparing them: roasting, baking, broiling, pan broiling, braising, stewing, and marinating. In a drag-and-drop exercise, students match the cut of beef to the appropriate cooking method.
The learner watches and listens to an animated scenario of a mother and daughter preparing dumplings for dinner. The dialogue is in Mandarin Chinese, and an English translation appears on the screen. Extra vocabulary words related to food preparation are also presented.
