Ordering in a Restaurant is the perfect role-play resource tool to help your adult ESL students navigate American restaurant English with confidence.

Do your students find themselves reduced to pointing at items on a menu and struggling to respond to the server's questions? With this , you can empower your students to politely request their favorite dishes in restaurant English. (It's the difference between "May I have the pasta" and "I'll have the pasta.")

The included role-play scripts are carefully crafted to simulate realistic restaurant scenarios that your students may encounter, giving them the opportunity to practice their language skills in a safe and supportive environment. (And laugh...they will laugh.)

From asking for recommendations to ordering dessert, the role plays, and the scenarios are designed to cover various aspects of dining out in America.

Most international students enjoy trying new foods, and this role-play pack is a great way to encourage them to step out of their comfort zone and experience American cuisine with confidence. Plus, with the added bonus of learning valuable restaurant English, your students will leave feeling confident and empowered to tackle any dining experience.

Don't let your students miss out on this essential resource. Get your hands on this "Ordering in a Restaurant" role-play pack today and watch your students' English skills soar!
