A. Warm-up Questions

I think fast food is convenient but it’s not very healthy. I like pizza a lot.
4. What kind of drink do you have when eating at a restaurant?
It depends on what kind of food I eat. Sometimes I drink wine or beer,
and sometimes I drink sake.

B. too, so, either, neither
中文表達對肯定句的贊同與否定句的同樣不贊同都是用“也”,英文的用法卻有不同,同為肯定時用too, so, 兩者皆為否定時用either, neither。

We can use so or too to agree with a positive statement.
S=subject 主詞  A= Auxiliary Verb 助動詞
Me too. = S + A, too. = So + A + S.
A: I love Taiwanese food.
B: Me too. / I do, too. / So do I.
A; I have eaten Mexican food.
B: Me too. / I have, too. / So have I.

We can use either or neither to disagree with a negative statement.
Me neither. = S+ A + not either. = Neither + A + S.
A: I’m not in the mood for Japanese food.
B: Me neither. / I’m not either. / Neither am I.
A: I can’t eat spicy food.
B: Me neither. / I can’t either. / Neither can I.

D. Ordering a meal  點菜
用英文點菜其實不難,難的是菜單的菜名可能看不懂。一般正式的西餐菜單會有開胃菜appetizer/starter、主菜main dish/entrée、甜點dessert、
飲料drink/beverage。主菜的附菜side dish有時候可以選。

raw/very rare/ rare/ medium rare/ medium / medium well done/ well done/ overcooked

blue cheese dressing/ Caesar dressing/ French dressing/ Honey Dijon
Italian dressing/ Thousand Island dressing/ Vinaigrette

一般服務生的問題多以would like的句型來問要不要什麼。如
What would you like? / What kind of dressing would you like?
How would you like your steak? / What would you like to drink?
Would you like anything else?

點菜時的句型可用I’d like … 或 I’ll have … ,或是Can I have …?
最好不要用 I want …。英文的want語氣比較強烈,有時會令人覺得不禮貌。
I’d like a steak.
I’ll have a cup of coffee.
Can I have a soup?
