Do you want to teach your students how to talk about restaurants? Maybe you want them to describe their favourite restaurant for IELTS, or perhaps you want them to be able to simply order their favourite dish when travelling abroad. In this PPT, I give essential restaurant vocabulary for ESL students.

Restaurant Vocabulary for ESL from David Wills

One way that I like to follow up this vocabulary exercise is to have students watch the following video and describe the events that take place. Most of it can be pretty accurately summarized with the vocabulary taught from the PPT. However, you might have to explain what steak tartare is.

There are, of course, a multitude of other suitable activities for them to practice their restaurant vocabulary. A role play is an obvious example.
