Today in class...
1. We played "Taboo" in a corner shop, a cafe, a supermarket and a restaurant. We used phrases like, "Could you get me _____, please?", "I'd like to order _____, please" and "Could you help me find _____, please?"
2. We looked at how to make polite requests (will > would, can > could) and our four special phrases, "Please", "Thank you", "Sorry" and "Excuse Me". We also looked at saying "Yes, please" and "No, thank you" when somebody offers us something. Then we practised these phrases with the worksheet and watched a funny video.
3. After that, we discussed some situations in restaurants in Hong Kong and compared them to the UK. I asked you, "Which place is 'more polite': Hong Kong or the UK?" and I tried to prove to you that they are equally polite, but in different ways.
See you next time!
