Hello there, viewer! Great to see you again. Fine dining is a very pleasant experience: we go to an awesome restaurant, order our favorite dishes and savor the taste in a great ambience. This lesson will show you how to place your order and speak to the staff in a fine dining restaurant.
Listen to them all, and check out the vocabulary section towards the end. And it’s a good idea to practice the lines by pausing the lesson and repeating the dialog anywhere you want to!
Let’s get started now!!

Joy: Here it is. You can select from this menu.
