Here you'll learn how to order lunch in a restaurant in China. You'll learn how to ask for the menu, order Chinese dishes, and order drinks. You'll also learn how to ask the waiter for the bill in Mandarin Chinese.
Dani and Leo take their seats in the restaurant, and look through the menu. Dani teaches Leo how to order some fundamental Chinese dishes, such as stir fries and fried noodles. Dani explains the underlying meaning behind new words such as chicken and beef, and Leo can identify the pattern in how these words are formed in Mandarin Chinese.
If you wish to enjoy the best of Chinese food, you'll need to gain some proficiency in using chopsticks. Just a little practice is required to ensure you don't go hungry at a fast moving Chinese feast. Avoid 'skewering' your food, unless as a last resort.
