Stories and Dialogues

1. About  Meals

   I’m a student and live in a hotel. So I have my meals out. Mostly I have them at the institute refectory. As a rule, I try to keep regular meals, it’s good for your health. I cook my breakfast and have it in.

   As for my dinner I usually have it out. Usually it’s a four-course meal. At four o’clock I have tea with some cake or a piece of cheese. I seldom have my supper out. Anyway it’s very light. I don’t believe in having a substantial meal before going to bed.

2. About  Meals

   If you ask me, I wouldn’t say I keep regular meals, though I live at home. I make it a rule to eat something before going to work. But normally it’s a very light breakfast: just a cup of coffee and a sandwich. I have a substantial meal in the middle of the day and call it dinner. But when I have no time to cook,

 I can do with some sandwiches. In the evening I have a light supper only.

3. My Mother Is Good at Cooking

My mother is very good at cooking. She spends a lot of time in the kitchen. She collects recipes and always invents new dishes.

We always have a houseful of guests. My friends say that the smell from the kitchen makes their mouth water when they are still in the doorway.

My mother knows that I have a sweet tooth and always cooks something delicious. Frankly speaking I’m constantly putting on weight because of that.

             I ‘m afraid I’ll have to start thinking of keeping to a  diet.

Stories and Dialogues

1. Breakfast

They say, breakfast should be substantial, but I don’t

like to have breakfast. I prefer a cup of tea or cocoa with a couple of sandwiches. Sometimes I have coffee in the morning, but not very often. I have it white. My mother likes eggs for breakfast, but not me. I like neither boiled nor fried eggs. On Sunday when I take it easy, I like a toast with butter and honey. But my favourite Sunday breakfast is cold meat with mustard, or ham with brown bread.  

  2. Dinner

Dinner is my most substantial meal. Usually I have a four-course dinner. I like to have vegetable salad for an appetizer or herring with oil and onions. Cabbage soup is my favourite first course. I have it with sour-cream and brown bread. But sometimes I have chicken soup

or broth with rice. I prefer meat to fish for the second. I like fried or stewed meat with gravy and mashed potatoes or boiled vegetables. If I have fish for dinner I have it fried with chips and green peas. I'm very particular about my dessert. In summer I have stewed fruit or fruit juice. In winter I prefer to have hot strong and sweet tea with lemon if there's some.

3. Tea 

          Englishmen like to have tea at five o'clock. So do I. I                            

think it does you good as you can have a very light supper after five-o'clock tea. I usually make my tea myself and like to lay the table for it. I like to have tea with lemon and sugar. My mother prefers hers with

jam or marmalade.. Very often we have tea with honey and buttered toasts. On Sunday my mother or we bake something to a chat a cake or a pie. We like to have a chat over a cup of strong nice tea.

  In the dining-room we have our meals: breakfast in the morning, lunch In the middle of the day, and supper or dinner in the evening.

  Here you see Mr. and Mrs. Thomson who've just arrived from abroad and are having dinner with the Browns. The host, Mr. Brown, is sitting at the head of the table, and the hostess, Mrs. Brown, is at the other and, Mr. and Mrs. Thomson are sitting on either side, facing each other.

    The dining-room table is covered with a white cloth.         Mrs. Brown has laid the table In the usual way, and has put the right number of knives, forks, spoons and glasses for each person. There's also pepper and salt, oil and vinegar, and mustard. On the left of each person is a table-napkin and a plate with a roll on it. In front of the host there's a carving-knife and fork.

  On the sideboard the Browns usually have a bowl of fruit: apples, pears, plums, cherries, grapes, oranges or bananas, according to the season. The mistress of the house has just served the soup. After this there'll be fish, meat or poultry with vegetables, then a sweet, and perhaps cheese and biscuits to finish with.

  2. Where are the host and hostess sitting?
  3. Who has laid the table?
  4. What is there on the table?

Discussion Questions:

  1. Is the table laid correctly?
  2. Do you lay the table in the same way or not?
  3. Do you always lay the table like that or only when you have guests coming?

Group Activities

1. Brush up your table manners.

A. Answer the following questions and then check your  answers by comparing then with the answers below:

  • What is correct way to sit at table?
  • Should you use your fork or your knife for taking a slice of bread from the bread-plate?
  • How should you get a slice of bread from the plate standing on the far end of the table?
  • What is the correct way of using spoon, fork and knife?
  •  How should you cut your meat?
  • What are the dishes for which knife shouldn't be used?
  • What is the way to eat chicken?
  • What is one supposed to do with the stones while eating stewed fruit?
  • What should you do with the spoon after stirring your tea?
  • What should you do if food is too hot?
  • What should you say to refuse a second helping?
  • What should you say if you like the dish very much?
  • What should you say if you dislike the dish?
  • What shouldn't one do while eating?
  • What should one keep the newspaper or the book during a meal, on the table or on one's lap?

B. Make up dialogues discussing good and bad manners.

Use material of Section A for questions and that of Section for answers.

Answers to Section A:

  • «It tastes (really) fine» or «It is delicious».
  • Never eat the stones (trying to be overpolite). Neither would it be a good idea to dispose of them dropping them under the table, placing them in your  pocket or in your neighbour's wine-glass. Just take them from your mouth on your spoon and plate them on your own saucer.
  • Nowhere near the table. Reading at one's meals is a bad habit: it is bad for your digestion and impolite towards others sitting at the same table.
  • Sit straight and close to the table. Don't put your elbows on the table. Don't cross your legs or spread them all over the place under the table.  
  • Never lean across the table or over your neighbours to get something out of your reach. Just say: «Please pass me the bread» or «Would you mind passinh the bread, please»
  • Nothing. Keep your impressions to yourself and don't embarrass your hostess.
  • Fish dishes are usually eaten without using knife. If one does, it is considered to be a serious breach of good table manners.  The same refers to rissoles, cereal and, in general, to anything that is soft enough to be comfortably eaten with spoon or fork.
  •    Neither. Your  hand quite correct for getting a slice of  bread for yourself. And after all, it is you who is     going to eat it.  
  • While eating, one should produce as little noise
  • or sound as possible. It is decidedly bad manners
  • to speak with your mouth full. Don't put your bread In your soup. Don't pour yuor tea In your saucer. Don't leave much on the plate: it is impolite towards your hostess. If you have liked the dish, it doesn't follow that you should polish the plate with your bread.
  • Don't hold your spoon In your flat, don't tilt it so be to spill its contants. The fork should be held In your left hand, the knife In your right.
  • It is wrong first to cut all the meat you  have got on your plate In small pieces and then eat it. Cut off a slice at a time, eat it, then cut off another, holding your knife In the right hand and your fork In the left.
  • «No more, thank you.»
  • Cut off and eat as much as possible by using your knife and fork: the remaining part eat holding the piece In your hand by the end of the bone.
