    Vocabulary: drinking... and eating


    Today, our purpose is to study the different ways of drinking and eating... A strange idea, as we could imagine there's only one way of doing these two daily actions... and yet ...     They all depend on the quantity of food or liquid ingested and of the way to act. Not all of them are to be imitated! 

     

     

    I) HOW TO DRINK?  

                       

            To sip tea= drink little mouthfuls 

           (notice his little finger!)

                           A sipper

           = (for babies or sick people)

                          Swallowing liquids       

                             To gulp

          = (swallowing large mouthfuls)

                      To guzzle

                         To quaff

                  = to drink heartily


                                                         

                                                     Kittens lapping up milk



    II) ... WHAT ABOUT EATING?

      
                  To peck at food             To nibble                   To chew
       
                               To munch/ masticate                          To swallow

                 To stuff oneself with...          

            

                      To swallow whole *           

                           To choke                  To vomit/ throw up


    * to swallow whole = to gobble up/ down = Those ways of eating are quite rude and may make you sick!  


                                                   

                                                                    Eating an ice-cream, or licking it? 


    Here we are. Now, you know all the verbs which are necessary to have a wonderful grade at the test!   Good luck!
