Form 4 students at St Thomas More College have started inviting their younger peers over to their classrooms for tea, cake and conversation. The activity forms part of Tea Talk, an activity aimed at encouraging students to talk in English in an informal setting while enjoying the popular British tradition of drinking tea and eating cake.

The school’s English teachers prepare the students beforehand, suggesting ways in which they can start off conversations with their guests.

The students were also shown video clips, learned about tea idioms and research on the beverage and even given tea-time treats recipes.

Many students were highly motivated for the activity and volunteered to bake cakes and biscuits for the occasion.

Known as Britain’s favourite beverage and poured at times of celebration, stress or sadness, tea is central to everyday life in Britain and many other countries across the globe, including Malta.
