Learn and practice

desserts and snacks vocabulary

with these fun games to learn English. There are vocabulary building games, spelling games, and question and answer listening exercises using English expressions that you might hear on homestay or in daily life - 'What do you want to eat for dessert?', 'What do you want to eat for snack?', etc.



This game focuses on snacks and desserts vocabulary. Students will also learn polite ways to answer 'yes', 'Yes, please.', as well as polite refusal, 'No, thank you.' These English exercises correspond to the ESL Curriculum from MES English.

The questions and answers for this game are as follows.

  • A: What do you want to eat for dessert?
  • B: I'd like some cake, please.
  • A: Do you want some apple pie?
  • B: Yes, please./No, thank you.
  • A: What do you want to eat for snack?
  • B: Can I have some jello, please?
  • A: Would you like some popcorn?
  • B: Yes, please./No, thank you.

Other notes:

  • This topic doesn't have grammar exercises. If you'd like to practice the target language "What do you want to ...?', please try the food games.
  • The spelling exercises will take the word alone, 'cookies' or the word with the article 'a'/'an' or (adjective) 'some' - 'a muffin', 'some cookies'.
  • The game audio asks a variety of questions using present tense and the subjunctive as well. Some of the answers to the yes/no questions are phrased as questions 'Can I have some peanuts, please?' However, since they are only listening activities, student shouldn't need to be taught these to complete the exercises. It may be a good idea to teach them to the students so the students can use them in a productive (not simply passive) manner.
