Take Me to Lunch!

As part of the curriculum established for 2º Programa, students had a chance to learn all kinds of restaurant vocabulary necessary to order in a restaurant. Due to differing customs in the United States, students had a chance to discuss with the teaching assistants and teacher the different norms associated with England and the United States when it comes to dining. Students were shocked at an appropriate tip for a night out in the United States, 15 to 20% of their total bill! The students also discovered the idea of a “menu del día” doesn´t exist in the United States and that most every restaurant is “a la carte” meaning you have to ask for every single item and nothing is included. Prices are comparable between Spain and the United States when it comes to dining out, but service perhaps is a bigger deal. Students in 2ºB had an opportunity to act out skits that they had made up themselves to practice their new vocabulary. Most groups had created their own menus as well. Take a look!
