Activity Overview

The ability to purchase food and eat in a restaurant is an essential skill for interacting in a foreign country. Beginner students of French will need to know the important phrases for ordering food politely and paying for it appropriately. In this activity, students will create a storyboard that practices dialogue various dining scenarios. The storyboards should include a character who orders food in a restaurant, interacts with a server politely, and asks the final price before leaving.

To encourage oral practice, conclude by having students present their scenes to the class, reading the French dialogue aloud. French pronunciation can be difficult for beginners, and this is a great way for students to take ownership of their practice.
