Hello! This is Jack from Now, I am feeling a little bit tired again this afternoon because my friend and I just had a large lunch. My friend came to visit my office and we decided to go somewhere for lunch. Now luckily, I didn’t have to go very far because there’s a great restaurant in this building and what I want to do now is to share three phrases that I used during our lunch, so here is the first one: when we got to the restaurant we had a quick look around and I asked the person at the front of the restaurant the following question: is there room inside? Is there room inside?

So, it’s a hot day today and we didn’t want to have to sit outside, so I asked if there was any room for us inside the restaurant. Now, another way you can ask this is by asking the question: do you have a table inside? Do you have a table inside? So, both of those are fine but today we really just wanted to sit inside. When we sat down at our table – inside – the server brought over the menus. She filled up our water and she also gave us information about the lunch special.

Now, I love getting the lunch special because this usually means getting really good food for a good price. It’s usually cheaper at lunch than it is at dinner, so I had a quick look at the special and then I asked her the following question: does the special come with a drink? Does the special come with a drink? She said: yes, you can choose any soda. Now unfortunately, I don’t drink soda, so I asked another question I asked her this: can I substitute the soda for something else? Can I substitute the soda for something else? So, I wanted to see if I could get something else instead of the soda. Unfortunately, she said no, well, she actually told me I could but there would be an upcharge – an additional (fee) price – so I stayed my water and had a fantastic meal.

What I want you to do now is to look at the description of this video because I have left further examples of how to use these phrases and a couple of extra phrases for you too. And also please answer the following question in the comments section below: where you live, do restaurants offer special deals at lunchtime?
