Ordering at a Restaurant Lesson
« on: February 08, 2011, 08:27:10 am »
This is a general lesson for teaching the basic phrases of ordering food in a restaurant. I used it to supplement/replace my textbook with my older grade 3 students. The lessons went well, though the role play activity needs a little prep with printing and cutting the menus.

The PowerPoint is a visual aid of pictures (waiter, flow of ordering dialogue, coffee, steak). The PPT's last slide is a demonstration of how to do the paired role play.

The Excel file is the menu handout for the role play. My classes are big, so I crammed six per page. Every student gets one menu and chooses their food. Then in pairs, students take each others' orders using the dialogue and checking the other side of the menu handout. I found my students are more willing to talk if I ask them what their partners wants to eat rather than themselves.

The Word file is just my own lesson plan and some notes, but it may help. Good luck!

I added the dialogue to the xls file. I also added a lot of material to the restaurants PowerPoint. I hope it helps!

This is a restaurant powerpoint I made.  One of the worksheets I got from isl collective and the other I got from a friend years ago.

Okay so the At the Restaurant lesson I posted on July 27th I used with a 45 minute class and could only get up to the first worksheet "at_the_restaurant."  The first part of that powerpoint was entirely based on the worksheet I had found online.  So now I have made an At the Restaurant Part 2 ppt and I am planning on using "Conversation going out to dinner" worksheet for next class.  Hope you find it useful!
