Pre-intermediate: A2


I cook almost every day in my home, I cook more for my family than for my friends. I enjoy preparing pies, grilled meat, pizza, pasta and salads the most but I also prepare "milanesas"(is a typical plate here in Uruguay and is made of tiny slices of meat, breadcrums and beaten eggs) whit potatoes purée.

I cook daily. I'm a vegetarian, so I make a lot of soups, vegetables like zucchini, aubergine, spinach .. with rice, sweet potatoes, pasta and so on. And I love spices, especially italien and arabic.

LearnEnglish team, these vocabulary exercises are great! But, in this exercise, photos #6, 9 and 12 are not clear as to whether we're talking about "burn", "grill" and "bake".

Hi sunsetlover

Glad to hear you find the exercises useful! You're right, sometimes there's more than one word that could be associated with a picture. In cases such as these, I'd suggest pressing the small audio button, which will play a recording of the word that matches the picture in the exercise. This is perhaps not an ideal solution, but does that help?

All the best
