Ask questions such as what it is a picture of, what kind of food do they serve, whats the inside like, where they think the restaurant is located to start discussion. Ask what they would serve, where they would like to open a restaurant, what would be the best thing they serve. Hand out the MES-Caf menu and have the students look it over. Answer any questions they may have (but I dont explain everything, just what they ask about.) Ask them what they want to order from this restaurant and how much their order is.

Brainstorm a list of ideas for appetizers, drinks, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. - Give out the choose a restaurant sheet and have the students start to make their own restaurant. - They must decide a name, place, and make a menu with prices. - Have the students visit other restaurant and choose their order. For more advanced students Follow ups: - List the ingredients for each of the items on the menu. - Write up a description/advertisement for the restaurant to pass around town. Use the MES-Caf advertisement as an example. - Create a role-play to act out - Create a commercial for the restaurant Finally: - Use the word doc. file or a form of your choice to write up their reports and send them into for everyone to use and share. I will post them on the website and add the students restaurant to the International Restaurant Boulevard.
