Today hear about the different foods that Lindsay and Jessica have experienced while traveling around the US.

Also find out how you can use these food topics to start conversations with native speakers and connect with new people!

When you are a newcomer to a place and you are learning about the new food in an area you need to be able to seek it out.

You need to know how to talk about the food that you are trying.

You want to know what special vocabulary words people use to talk about their food in their local city.


On Lindsay’s cross country trip this summer she tried:

  • Craft donuts in Chicago
  • Pasties in Michigan
  • Barbecue ribs in Mississippi
  • Po Boys in Tennessee
  • A burger and a chocolate shake at In-N-Out
  • Chinese food in San Francisco
  • And so much more


In our course which will be released very soon you will get to follow Lindsay’s cross country trip and learn how to talk about some of the foods that Lindsay tried.
