First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||In many countries it is standard to remain seated at your table while you pay for your meal.|
|2.||Be sure to check the receipt to see if a service charge has been included. Tipping varies by country; just be sure to leave a tip for your server if you are in a country where tipping is common.|
|3.||If you cannot finish your meal, the server may ask if you want a box to bring it home in. Do not feel obliged to take unfinished food back to your hotel room.|
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.
(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)
|A:||Here you are. Enjoy your meal!|
|A:||How is everything? Can I get you another drink?|
|B:||Everything tastes great, thank you. No, I won’t be needing anything else to drink, except maybe some more water.|
|A:||Would you like a box for that?|
|B:||No, I’m fine. Just the check, please.|
|A:||Okay, here you are.|
|B:||Do you accept Visa?|
|A:||Yes, we do. Just sign here, please.|
|B:||Thank you. Everything tasted wonderful.|
|A:||Thank you. Enjoy your evening.|
