Presentational Speaking: You just had a horrible experience at a restaurant in Spain. It was the final farewell dinner for your host siblings and American classmates in Salamanca, and everything that could possibly go wrong, went wrong. You immediately call your host parents to explain what happened. You tell them about:
making the reservation
arriving at the restaurant and being seated
discussing the menu and ordering
eating the meal
asking for the bill & paying
Include anything else you can to make the story more interesting for your host parents!
TIP: Use authentic dishes and ingredients when talking about the meals you ordered.
