This lesson is part of the Beginner Practice Spanish Course
(58 Spanish video or mp3 lessons. 2 hrs 28 mins)
This is an interactive Spanish video where you get the chance to practice speaking Spanish at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this Spanish lesson we will practice some useful Spanish phrases that you will need when you are speaking Spanish in a restaurant in Spain or Latin America, such as how to ask for a table, how to ask for the menu, how to order food in Spanish, how to say that things are good or bad, and how to ask for the bill/check. These useful Spanish phrases will help you along the way, but you will also need to be confident in your listening abilities and have a good understanding of basic grammar and vocabulary to be able to extend your conversation and respond to questions from the waiter and unforeseeable comments. This takes time and practice, but the key is to get stuck in and start speaking Spanish in common situations, such as a restaurant. Learning some common useful Spanish phrases will help you to get some confidence and break the ice and then it is onwards and upwards!
Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.
