This is true. The food and holidays are a hook to teach the more indepth cultural aspects which are necessary in the global economy. The students almost do not realize that there is a deeper lesson than talking about a holiday. This might not be true in all language classrooms, but in mine, the students are much more involved and engaged if we are talking about a holiday. I can add a mini grammar lesson with a small connection to the cultural side, and they are interested. There is so much more to a country than its food and celebrations; however, realistically, that is what gets a child’s attention first.
