English in the Kitchen

Classes teach students the English language while they learn to cook

English in the Kitchen uses cooking as a tool to teach English. The classes are intended for those learning English as a second language. Daily and/or weekly classes, conversation partners, and simple challenges encourage our students to practice what they learn in class. We explore a new recipe focused on a particular food genre or region in the USA. Because there is so much culture wrapped up in food, we are able to teach more than just vocabulary. We have a plethora of recipes and food themes to choose from.

We’ll provide the kitchen, tools, food, recipes and instruction. This is no ordinary language class! The language proficiency varies in each class, but it works because the common language is food.
