This is a work booklet I made for my Spanish class to accompany our unit on food and eating out in restaurants. It contains:
Vocabulary pages (in English and Spanish) for:
- different types of vegetables
- different types of meats/seafood
- cooking methods
- breakfast items
- lunch and dinner items
- eating utensils
- adjectives to describe the taste of food
English and Spanish versions of:
- Common expressions used by a waiter/waitress in a restaurant
- Common expressions a customer may use in a restaurant
- Comments about food E.g. I don't like..., The .. is a little greasy.
- Problems with food E.g. I don't have a glass.,The salmon is bad.
- Activities to consolidate each section - e.g. a table where students can categorise fruits by different colours.
- Important verbs and conjugations (present tense)
- Sentences to practice using these verbs
- Labelling activities
- A reading comprehension activity and worksheet about the history of chocolate.
- An activity where students can go online to the McDonalds webpage and compare items in various Spanish-speaking countries to items on the menu in their country. (This activity relates to Australia in this version, but can be easily edited to your country.)
- A menu from a Spanish restaurant and questions about the menu items.
- A Subway menu in Spanish and questions related to ordering at Subway in a Spanish-speaking country.
This booklet would be ideal in assisting for an upcoming speaking exam and could also be used to assist with creating a role play in a restaurant. Students could use the vocabulary and expressions they have learnt to take on the roles of a waiter/customer.
I hope you enjoy this resource!
