French: Food and Restaurant Vocabulary

Step 1Class discussion with students

Getting Started

These activities build upon learned vocabulary of French foods. Students can already identify common foods and drinks in French. Previous knowledge would include vocabulary for how to order food and how to ask for the check. Previous knowledge would also include understanding phrases for expressing personal opinions: I like, I prefer, and I hate. The use of passé composé is a modification that can be used in one of the activities depending on when you use it in your instruction.

Opening Discussion

Begin with a cultural note by discussing the different mannerisms in French restaurants and cafés. Discuss:

  • the tip being included in the bill
  • the style for waiters to not approach tables unless called over
  • the average length of time in a meal
  • differences between cafés, bistros, and restaurants in France

Encourage students to compare these with the styles they experience in their home towns. It also helps to aid this discussion with videos. If you have access to a screen and YouTube here are two of my favorites:

  • Make a Timeline
    Yesterday...

    If students have not been introduced to the past tense yet, this activity can be written in the present tense to describe a typical day. It can also be worked a second time in the Near Future Tense to describe what they will eat tomorrow. Encourage students to express the time in complete sentences as a cumulative review.

Step 3Concluding discussion with students

Conclude these activities with a live drama to engage speaking skills and improve pronunciation. Students can work in groups to create a restaurant drama of friends ordering a meal. The skits are performed before the whole class for a performance-based assessment.
