Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.



Staff: Hello, Gino's.

Jamie: Hi. Can I book a table for tomorrow night, please?

Staff: How many people is it for?

Jamie: Four.

Staff: And what time would you like?

Jamie: About eight, eight thirty maybe?

Staff: Let's see ... We're pretty busy tomorrow, so I can do half past seven or nine.

Jamie: Oh. OK, then. Half seven, please.

Staff: What name is it?

Jamie: Jamie.

Staff: J-A- ...?

Jamie: M-I-E

Staff: OK, so that's a table for four at half past seven tomorrow evening.

Jamie: Great. Thanks! Bye.

Staff: Bye.

Staff: Hello, Gino's.

Jamie: Hi, I called earlier to book a table for four and I was wondering if I can make it for six instead?

Staff: Ah, what name was it?

Jamie: It's Jamie.

Staff: Table for four at half past seven. So you want to change it to 6 o'clock?

Jamie: No, sorry. Can I make it for six people?

Staff: Oh, I see. Sorry! That shouldn't be a problem. I can move you to a bigger table but it will be nearer the kitchen. Is that OK?

Jamie: No problem. Is it possible to change the time as well? Make it a little bit later?

Staff: Ah ... yeah, we can. Is eight OK for you?

Jamie: Perfect, thanks!

Staff: Lovely. See you tomorrow, then.

Jamie: Thanks! Bye!

Staff: Thanks. Ciao!

My favorite restaurant is a restaurant that has traditional food. I don't like fast food because it is greasy and not healthy.

I love seafood of all kinds, such as grilled and fried fish, as well as soup and fried shrimp with onion rings and its special sauce, because of its importance as a healthy food necessary for the human body and providing it with vitamin D, which is important for bones.

my favorite food is fast food like burger when it is full of cheese sauce and i like the taste of onion rings and lettuce with it, the closest food to me heart is fried chicken when it is spicy and crunchy i prefer eating it with fries-with out spices just some salts- i sometimes add ketchup to fries , i love soda with any kind of food and any time.
