Greetings, English Learners. Do you like going out to eat? Do you enjoy dining out at your favorite restaurant? What’s your favorite meal?
When it comes to discussions in English, it is important to be able to communicate when ordering a meal. What would you talk about in English if you were to order a meal at a restaurant? Here are a few suggestions:
— It’s early morning and you’re famished. You go to your neighborhood restaurant and order breakfast. What would you ask the waiter? What would the waiter ask you?
— It’s afternoon and you’re very hungry. You see a restaurant that you haven’t visited before, go inside, and sit down. What would you ask the waiter? What would the waiter ask you?
— It’s evening, and you’re out with your friends at a fancy restaurant. What would you ask the waiter? What would the waiter ask you?
Ordering a meal is part of everyday life in the United States of America. Being able to communicate effectively while ordering a meal is essential.
PART 2 — DIRECTIONS: Read the dialogue below in English, then translate it and read it in your primary language.
