Dining is a great time to socialize and connect.

But you can’t just listen to yourself chewing food – you have to be active and engaged with others!

But what do you talk about?

How should you start?


Here are three great phrases to create conversation while dining:

  1. “Have you eaten here before?” This is a great way to begin. If the other person has eaten there before, you might follow up with, “What do you recommend?”
  2. “Do you know what you’re going to have?” Say this after you have received the menu, to help keep the conversation moving.
  3. “How’s your meal?” You can use this phrase after the food has arrived and you have had a chance to taste it. If your food is good, you might offer, “Would you like to try some?”

Have you had experiences dining in English?
