One of the best situations where we can interact and have great conversations is when we have a meal. Having lunch for example is one time during the day when we can relax and share with others at work, home or with friends. In today’s lesson we are going to share phrases and vocabulary related to when we have lunch.

What you say over lunch

–  Thanks for inviting me to lunch.
–  Where would you like to sit?
–  What are you having then? —– (What are you going to have then)
–  You can’t go wrong with the duck.
–  Have you been here before?
–  Do you eat out much?
– I’ll have the same as him. / I’ll have what he’s having.
– Do you want to share the dessert?
– This is on me. / I’ll get this one.

Observations:(More in the audio)

– Thanks for is uses to say thank you. If you want to follow this by an “Action” we use the ING form e.g “Thanks for coming today”.

– Remember that we can use the present continuous for future if we have a future arrangement. “What are you going to have?” can be expresses as “What are you having?” (Para aprender como usar el Present Continuous para el futuro vaya a la leccion 51 AQUI)
