On 28th May our first Cooklish© - Cooking and Conversation took place at The St. Gallic English Teachers. As appetizer we served a traditional Pimm’s. For starter we cooked a bacon salad with Irish cheese dressing followed by a Shepherd’s pie. Eton mess top the menu off.

The participants had the chance to train their English conversation in a relaxed atmosphere, which they all did with great fun. While they were cooking the had the chance to interview each other and talk about their interest. Besides that, the participants could ask questions and to learn new vocabulary, if the wanted. After about 1 ½ hours dinner was served and one could enjoy traditional English food.

Understand the jargon — be careful how you use it
Example:  “It’s time to escalate that plan to upper management.”

Explanation: In standard English, “escalate” is a verb meaning “to increase rapidly” or “to become more intense”, as in: “The war has escalated.” In business English, it means “to refer something (such as a problem) to a higher level in an organization in the hope that it will be resolved”.
