Food: Week Five

This week we’re going to work on restaurant role plays.  We are going to be doing mini-sketches about different restaurant scenarios.

To prepare for the workshop watch Episode 16 of Living English.  The video has a lesson component and a TV show component (Brothers and Sisters).  You only need to watch the TV show component (0:45 – 2:00).

As you watch the video pay attention to how the characters use language. At restaurants people are usually very polite.  When we speak English, being polite often means being indirect.  How are the characters indirect?
