Ecolabels and Greener Food Choices

ESL news-based lesson plan

Lesson Overview

Students will learn about EU and France regulations that will change the future of food labelling in this ESL ESL lesson on Public Health and food sustainability. Ecolabels (sometimes known as “Eco-Labels”) are food and consumer product labelling systems. Food eco-labelling, for example, allows customers to evaluate the environmental footprint of different products and make decisions about their effect on their diet.  

It focuses on practising key listening, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking skills.  If used as a flipped ESL lesson, you will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson. However, lessons can run up to 3 hours ( consider two  90-minute lessons or for university teachers to adjust as needed).

While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate language learners of English, it is highly adaptable as it has been purposely designed to facilitate mixed-level classes. This includes targeting professionals in a tertiary institution such as a university or within a professional environment.
