English Guide: Practical Tips for Better English Communication
How to Ask for the Bill in a Restaurant?
Have you developed sufficient English speaking skills to impress a friend by placing an order in fluent English? Can you conduct an entire conversation with someone in well- spoken English? Can you request the waiter to bring your bill in flawless English?
Visualize scoring a date with the girl you have always wanted to take out, even if it meant only one dinner date. So, you've managed to convince her for one dinner and you do not want anything to ruin this experience of yours. She is well- spoken and the restaurant you are taking her is five star. In such a situation, you do not have much of an option but to speak in English and that to fluent English.
Now what? Do you find yourself baffled? Well, you shouldn't. Wasting time over fretting is going to benefit you in no way. In fact, it will just eat away your time that you were otherwise supposed to spend making her feel special .
Starters to dessert in fluent English:
One, just one, distasteful dining experience can leave a bad taste in your mouth, so let's give you a few examples to help you successfully go through the entire dining process from starters to the dessert in fluent English.
1. Situation- While entering the restaurant.
"We'll like to have a table for two, please."
2. Situation- Waiter's asking you whether you'd want to opt for bottled or regular water.
"We'd like to have cold, mineral water."
3. Situation- While zeroing down on what to order.
"Can I have a Cosmopolitan and a Bloody Mary (cocktails) in the meanwhile..."
4. Situation- While placing the order, asking for recommendations.
"What do you recommend?" Or "What are your specialties?"
5. Situation- While leaving the restaurant.
"May we have the bill, please?" Or "Check please!"
