The goal of the module is that the students will all be able to order a meal (4 items) in an American restaurant using a standard menu without using a translation dictionary or an electronic translator.
Using a standard restaurant menu and a visual dictionary, students will order four items: main dish, soup or salad, beverage and dessert, stating appropriate preferences for each item, such as how it should be cooked or what should accompany it (sugar, cream, dressing, crackers).
The students will understand the context of the ordering process and will know how to fill in the foods they want with visual aids on the menu or with the aid of a visual dictionary. Some study and the memorization of the conversation patterns in the context of the restaurant will be done during the lesson, but the students can use their notes. They will be able to employ two means of ordering: by using the standard name of the food as found in their resources or remembered or by simply describing the food to the server. Using the menu, they will order the main course, soup or salad accompaniment, a beverage and dessert.
