Vocabulary - Dining Out

In this Spanish Medium Review quiz we will take a look at vocabulary words you will need to know before dining out. I think mothers’ favorite nights are those nights that the family gets to go out for dinner. What can be more relaxing and require such little clean-up as to dine out? Of course, there is dining out at McDonalds and then there is dining out at a fancy restaurant where there are waiters and waitresses and top notch chefs. Now that’s when you are really dining out!

Dining out can also happen at any time of the day. It can be done for breakfast, for brunch, for lunch and for dinner. Of course, doing it too many times can have a negative effect on the wallet, as well as the waistline. Still, it is always fun to indulge every now and then!

So what does dining out have to do with Spanish? Well, if you want to go dining out to a nice, authentic, Spanish restaurant, it would be very helpful for you to know how to communicate with your servers. That means learning more vocabulary words. Therefore, let’s take a quick look at some dining out vocabulary words you might come across.

After you learn these words you should be all set to dine out. Maybe you can even impress your family and friends with all of the words that you know. First, though, you need to really practice and learn them.

This quiz will help you to test what you now know about dining and it will also let you know what you may need to study up on a bit more. To do that you will be given ten sentences with a word that has been shown in all capitalized letters. That word could be shown either in English or in Spanish. From the answers given below the sentence, see if you can find the correct translation that goes with the capitalized word.
