Shopping and Dining

Activity involves the students practicing buying or selling things.

Many textbooks will have students practice buying something from a store or ordering food at a restaurant. This can be useful for students to practice if they travel to an English-speaking country.

Putting students in the role of both the customer and the seller can be a good way to reinforce the different patterns.
