Due to their length and overlap with new grammar structures, Spanish expressions are typically more challenging for students to recall and use than other vocabulary. In this activity, students will create a narrative to practice using restaurant expressions in context. This will help students recall them in real life situations and understand when and how they are used.
Students should use at least three cells in their narrative. To Have students create a storyboard that relates a short narrative in a restaurant. They should provide the translation of selected expressions above each cell. For more advanced students or more challenge, have students write a sentence describing the action below each cell.
|faltar; me falta; te falta||to need/be missing; I need; You need|
|¿Me trae…?||Will you bring me…?|
|Le traigo…||I will bring you…|
|Quisiera||I would like|
|¿Algo más?||Anything else?|
|De nada||You’re welcome|
|¡Qué rico/sabroso/asqueroso!||How rich/tasty/disgusting!|
|De plato principal; De postre||For the main dish; For dessert|
