At a restaurant
"What would you like to eat?" That's what a waiter might ask in an English-speaking country. You actually know what you would like to eat but how to order it in English?
The following example sentences show you what a waiter might say and what possibly to reply. Not only guests-to-be but also waiters-to-be can practise here for communicative situatioins at a restaurant.
