Les résultats de ma recherche sur la Côte d’Ivoire

The cuisine of West Africa tends to rely on heavy starchy foods (known as carbohydrates), which provide energy. Typically, West Africans will give their meals taste with hot spices and chilli peppers, or sauces such as peanut.

An example of a typical starchy food is Fufu. This is made from root vegetables such as yams, cocoyams, or cassava. It is normally accompanied by sauces or stews.

Aloko (Fried Bananas)

Ingredients

  • 5 bananas
  • Oil

Procedure

  1. Cut the bananas lengthwise, then into little pieces.
  2. Pour about 4 inches of oil into a saucepan and heat until boiling.
  3. Place ½ of the sliced bananas into the oil.
  4. Fry both sides until reddish-brown, then very carefully remove.
  5. Fry the other ½, then remove.
  6. Serve immediately alone, or with grilled fish.

Serves 4 to 6.

 

Some specific dishes of Ivory Coast are kedjenou (chicken with braised vegetables), attieke (cassava ground into couscous-like grains and eaten with fish or meat)

Cassava and plantains are significant parts of Ivorian cuisine.

 

I think that the Ivorian diet is quite healthy. Because in their diet, not only do they eat meat, but also many tropical fruits. Such as pineapples and bananas.

South Africa’s food blends the traditions of many cultures and influences. Maize and soured milk were historically key components of the diet. As Europeans arrived, South African cuisine began to include meat dishes such as sausages and pies. Malays and Indians brought curries and spices.

I think that it is very important to eat proper food in order to b healthy. Also, I think that food reflects on a counties culture. Thus representing one’s characteristics of people and the nation. So the statement “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are” is true to an extent of culture.

Drama Speech Reflection – Criterion D

I think I did pretty good at delivering my speech. I projected my voice well. I tried to maintain eye- contact with the audience. But sometimes I looked down, at my paper. Also, sometimes, my speaking wasn’t so fluent, made some mistakes. But I think I recovered. I think I had some tonality and articulation in my speech. Because my topic was really complicated, so it can be challenging for me to explain it, if you don’t know it. So next, I should think about the topic that I will talk about, by considering the audiences.

In the future, I think that the techniques and knowledge from this persuasive speech will come in really handy when I’m trying to persuade someone. In situations such as a job interview. When I want to persuade the interviewer to hire me.

To prepare a speech, I needed to do some research about the topic, then I had to illustrate and organise the facts into points to talk about. I also made a paper for some of the quotes, and points for help me when I speak. Knowing how to structure the speech very useful because it helps you to practice how to organise points in logical and effective way when speaking. The ability to present well is also quite important. Because it can help practice speak confidently. Such as you need to have proper vocal modulation.
