In this web activity, you will learn how to read a French menu and order food in a restaurant.
Go to Les Deux Magots website: http://www.lesdeuxmagots.fr/
Click on “la carte restauration”. The seasonal menu will appear. It begins with the starters, continues with main dishes, and finishes with cheese(s) and desserts. Choose a starter (une entrée), a main dish (un plat principal), and a dessert (un dessert). You will notice that French menus often tend to be “poetic”. Write the items as they appear on the menu, and then list a minimum of two ingredients in each dish, relying on vocabulary that you recognize, and cognates.
