Going for a Bite: Giving Directions to a Restaurant Time:60 min. Materials: Partner A Activity Sheet Partner B Activity Sheet Restaurant Guide Downtown Map Optional Materials: Giving Directions Pair worksheets

Purpose and Audience: The purpose of these materials is to get the students to practice giving directions to a restaurant based on street names and other buildings in the vicinity: It's on Pine Street next to the post office. This is a fairly simple role-play intended for false beginners (or perhaps even beginners). In short, students will call up their classmates and ask if they want to go for a bite. The student who receives the phone call will suggest a restaurant and give directions on how to get there. This activity also reviews the superlative (best, tastiest, hottest) and nationality adjectives (Korean, Italian, Japanese). Warmup or Preclass Activity: Go over the pair worksheet for directions. Class Set-up: The class is divided into two groups: callers and receivers. Callers get a Partner B Activity Sheet plus a map of the downtown area. Receivers get a Partner A Activity Sheet plus a Restaurant Guide. Callers 'call' the receivers and ask them out to dinner. The receivers suggest a restaurant and give directions on how to get there. Callers record the location on the map and the restaurant details on their activity sheet. As a challenge, have the receivers face away from the callers (callers tap them on the back and say, "Bring! Bring! Bring!'')


Other students will call you up and ask you to go for dinner. Use the restaurant guide to suggest a restaurant to them.
