In all cultures of the world, there is a tradition of eating together. Although the cuisine, products, and cooking styles differ, it is customary around the world to sit down with friends and family.

Edible Alphabet Program The Free Library of Philadelphia Culinary Literacy Center aims to help immigrants and refugees learn English using the ubiquity of food.

The center has a professional kitchen equipped with burners, convection ovens, refrigerators and stainless steel work tables, serving as a classroom.

According to teacher Lindsay Southworth, students learn, practice, improve and expand their English skills through cooking.

Learning through food

The free course, launched in 2015 and still running, is offered to English learners in Philadelphia and is open to learners of all levels.

One culinary instructor and one language teacher are responsible for each lesson, who lead the lessons together and make them interesting, educational and delicious.

The lesson usually begins with an interactive warm-up in which students talk and review key language constructs learned the week before.

After an exercise or game of reading or writing, the recipe for the day is announced, new terms are explained, and cooking begins.

“Even though we all have different levels of English in our class, everyone is happy to work together, we have a sense of community,” said Southworth. "It helps to bridge the gap between those who may be fluent in English and those who are just starting to learn the language."
