Restaurant phrases


If you sometimes invite English-speaking colleagues or friends out for a meal, it helps to be familiar with the common phrases used in this situation.

In this lesson, we're going to review and expand on the expressions you have learned in Elementary Conversation Lesson 2 (Inviting someone out). To fully assimilate these phrases, it's important that you engage all four skills by working through the material in the following way:

  • LISTEN to each phrase twice (without seeing it).
  • WRITE it down.
  • READ it (to check your listening comprehension and spelling).
  • REPEAT it out loud (to improve your pronunciation & fluency).

Hi, Number 21 isn't very well pronounced.I do hear:" Which/ would you like a starter."  Second remark: Is it sprinkling water or what exactly.

1. The reason you hear something like 'which' is that when the sound  /d/ is followed by the sound /ʊ/ or /u:/, it changes to /dʒ/:

would you >> /wʊdʒju:/ 

2. The word is 'sparkling', which means 'with bubbles'.
