Performance Task: Going to a Restaurant

February 18th, 2013 No comments

Please study the following scenario and create a conversation regarding eating out. There are two parts in this performance task.

Part I

Create and incorporate conversation contents relating to eating out.

Conduct an improvised discussion about setting up a time and place to meet. Please focus on word order, pronunciation and comprehension.

Part II

Meet at the restaurant and order food, making payment and receiving change.

Simulate a social gathering and carry out a conversation during the meal.

Comment on food: taste, quality, preference, etc.

Scenario

A number of friends had a Skype call. They chatted about the school activities and decided to have lunch together the next day. They heard so many positive comments about a Chinese restaurant where many other ISM students had been to. There are some very popular authentic Chinese dishes. They set up the meeting time and looked forward to having Chinese food. Next day, they went to the restaurant, placed their orders and enjoyed lunch together.

Method

 In groups of three or four, one student acts as a waiter/waitress while others act as friends. The whole group will collectively create a conversation to talk about the popular Chinese dishes, food preference and a balanced diet. This content is incorporated into the telephone/Skype conversation.

Then the skit will take place in a restaurant where food ordering, chatting about personal interests—e.g. classes, movies, books, activities, dishes ordered make up the main conversation. The skit will end with asking for the bill, making payments and receiving change.

Requirements:

  • The improvised dialogue should include the following components:
  • Invite friends to eat out
  • Discuss the most famous dishes in that restaurant
  • Your food preferences
  • Recommendations from waiter
  • Order food and drinks
  • Chat about personal interests, books, movies, etc in Chinese
  • Comment on the food
  • Ask and pay for the bill

In the dialogue, focus will be placed on the following:

  • Use proper sentence patterns for ordering and comments
  • Use proper measure words
  • Include soup, appetizer, main courses, staple food, dessert and drinks
  • Everyone has to comment on the food
  • Ask for method of payment before you pay

Assessment:

  • Creativity
  • Content
  • Vocabulary
  • Expression
  • Grammar
  • Pronunciation and tones
  • Fluency and performance
