This evening the Browns have invited some friends to dinner. It is just a small dinner-party for four of their friends: Mr and Mrs Carter and Mr and Mrs Macdonald.

The guests arrive at about half past seven and are shown into the sitting-room where Mr Brown pours drinks for them. Sherry is the most popular wine in England; men usually prefer dry sherry, but women prefer sweet. At eight o'clock Mrs Brown says dinner is ready, and they move into the dining-room.

Mary Brown does all the cooking in her house. She is always a little worried in case something goes wrong, but this evening everything goes well and the guests make many kind remarks about her cooking.

There are four courses: soup, fish, meat and a sweet which is pudding today. Cheese and biscuits and coffee will be served after the sweet.

The conversation at table is lively and interesting. Mrs Brown will not let the men talk about trade and politics all the time; when she thinks anyone is getting tired, she changes the subject. She is very good at getting people to talk in an interesting way, and there is always plenty of laughter at her dinner-table. Mr Brown often wonders how his wife can manage to make sure that all her guests enjoy themselves, and at the same time the dinner is well served.

But then, he has known for a long time that his wife is a very clever woman!

When dinner is over they go to the sitting-room. For a while the ladies sit and talk while the men stand about smoking their cigars and talking business. Presently Mr Brown brings out some of his new records he thinks his guests will like to hear.

At about eleven o'clock the Macdonalds decide they must go as they have to get back to London. The Carters offer to run them to the station in their car. So all the guests leave together. Mr and Mrs Brown see them off at the garden gate. The guests thank their hosts for a pleasant evening and drive off.


/. Listen to the text "The Browns Give a Dinner-party" and answer the questions:

What are the Browns doing this evening? What do the Browns treat their guests to? What is the conversation at table like? Is Mrs Brown a good hostess? What do the guests do after dinner? When do the guests leave the Browns' house? Do you think they are pleased with the party?

Meals in England are much the same as in other countries with the exception of breakfast. I expect you've heard all about the

English breakfast with its porridge or cereal, bacon and eggs, toast, marmalade and tea or coffee. Very few people like chocolate or cocoa for breakfast. In the afternoon about four o'clock or half past nearly everybody has tea. The two main meals of the day, lunch and dinner, are more or less alike. Most people have lunch about one o'clock and dinner at half past seven or later.

Questions: What is the English breakfast like? What are the two main meals of the day? When do the English have lunch (dinner)?

At the Continental Restaurant

Yesterday was Sherman and Dorothy Johnson's twenty-third anniversary. They went to the Continental Restaurant for dinner. This restaurant is a very special place for Sherman and Dorothy because they went there on their first date twenty-four years ago. Sherman and Dorothy sat at a quiet, romantic table in the cor­ner. They had two glasses of wine and then they ordered dinner. First Dorothy ordered a bowl of vegetable soup, and Sherman ordered a glass of tomato juice.

For the main course Dorothy ordered baked chicken with rice and Sherman ordered fish with potatoes.

For dessert Dorothy ordered a piece of apple pie and Sherman ordered a bowl of strawberries.

Sherman and Dorothy enjoyed their dinner very much. The soup was delicious and the tomato juice was fresh. The chicken was wonderful and the rice was tasty. The fish was fantastic and the potatoes were excellent. The apple pie was magnificent and the strawberries were out of this world!

Sherman and Dorothy had a wonderful evening at the Con­tinental Restaurant. It was a very special anniversary.

Questions: Where did Sherman and Dorothy celebrate their wedding anniversary? What dishes did they order at the restau­rant? How did they find the cooking?

Dinner for Two

Max Roberts is a bachelor. He lives in a small flat in London. Max not only enjoys eating food, he enjoys preparing it as well. His favourite hobby is cooking. He has had so much practice that he has become an expert cook.

His sister, Anne, called on him last Sunday evening. It was nearly dinner time and Max was in the kitchen. He was wearing an apron and preparing a meal.

"You will stay to dinner, of course", Max said. "I'm starving!" Ann said. "Is there enough food for both of us?" "I hope so," Max

answered. Anne lifted the lid of the saucepan. "Mm", she said. "It smells delicious. What is it?" "It's a Mexican dish", Max answered. "But this dish ought to be good. I've been preparing it for 5 hours". "There's enough food here for ten people! "Anne said as she looked into the saucepan. "Are you expecting compa­ny?" "No", Max replied. "I was going to eat it all myself".

Questions: Where does Max live? What is Max's favourite hobby? When did his sister call on him? Where was Max at the time? What was Max doing when his sister called? What sort of dish was Max preparing? Why did his sister ask him if he was expecting company?

An Unwelcome Visitor

The door bell rang. Mrs Carson opened the front door. Her heart sank when she saw Mrs Barbidge. Whenever Mrs Barbidge called she stayed for hours and hours.

"Good afternoon, Mrs Carson", Mrs Barbidge said. "I was just passing and thought I'd drop in to say hullo".

"How very thoughtful of you", Mrs Carson replied. "Do come in."

Just as Mrs Carson had feared Mrs Barbidge stayed for several hours. It was nearly six o'clock and Mr Carson would be home from work soon. He couldn't stand Mrs Barbidge. Mrs Car­son kept wondering how she could persuade Mrs Barbidge to leave without offending her.

"Has your husband got home from work yet?" Mrs Carson asked. "Oh, yes," Mrs Barbidge answered. "He always gets home about 5 o'clock". "It's nearly 6 o'clock. Won't he be getting worried about you?" Mrs Carson said.

"I thought of that," Mrs Barbidge said. "But it's so pleasant here. We've had such a lovely afternoon. You know what I'll do? I'll ring up my husband and tell him to come round too. May I use your phone, please?"

Questions: Why was Mrs Carson disappointed when Mrs

Barbidge called? When does Mr Carson come from work? How

does Mr Carson feel about Mrs Barbidge? How did Mrs Carson

try to get Mrs Barbidge to leave? Why did Mrs Barbidge decide

i to telephone her husband?


1. You'll find restaurants for every situation in the US. If you are in a hurry, you may just want to grab some "junk food" at a grocery store or a candy counter, or you can get a bite to eat at

one of the many fast food chains, like McDonald's, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, or Taco Time. Or you can get a hero or submarine sandwich "to stay" or "to go" from a sandwich shop or deli. Some of these places have tables, but many don't. People eat in their cars or take their food home, to their offices or to parks. If you prefer sitting down but still don't want to spend much, you can try a cafeteria. At all of these places, you pay at a cash register before you sit down, and you don't have to tip anybody - but you usually have to clear the table when you finish!


candy very sweet sugary food

deli short for delicatessen, a shop where you can buy salads and cooked meats and have sandwiches made

junk food snack foods that are not good for you

2. I'm a terrible cook. I've tried hard but it's no use. I've got lots of cookery books, I choose a dish I want to cook, I read the recipe, I prepare all the necessary ingredients and follow the instructions. But the result is terrible, and I just have a sandwich or some other quick snack. So I often eat out. I don't like grand restaurants. It's not the expense, it's just that I don't feel at ease in them. First the waiter gives me a menu which I can't under­stand because it's complicated and has lots of foreign words. At the end of the meal when I pay the bill I never know how much to leave as a tip. I prefer fast food places, like hamburger shops where you pay at once and sit down and eat straightaway. And I like take-away places, where you buy a meal in a special contai­ner and take it home.

Maureen often gives dinner parties at home. She loves entertaining. She lays the table: puts the cutlery in the right places, sets out the plates and puts a clean white napkin at each place. For the meal itself, she usually gives her guests some kind of starter first, for example soup or melon. Next comes the main course which is usually meat (unless some of her guests are vege­tarians or they're on a special diet) with a side-dish of salad. For dessert it's usually fruit or ice-cream and then coffee. When everyone has gone home, she must think about doing the washing up, as in the kitchen the sink is full of dirty cutlery.
