Practical English Usage: Ordering Ice Cream

Dialog in an American Ice Cream Parlor

Student: Hi, I’d like some ice cream, please.

Teacher: With pleasure! Would you like it in a cup or in a cone?

Student: In a cup, please./In a cone, please!

Teacher: What flavor and how many scoops would you like?

Student: I think I’ll have three scoops: strawberry, chocolate and hazelnut/walnut.

Teacher: There you go!

Student: Thank you.

Nachdem dieser, für die Sommerzeit recht praktische, Dialog gut eingeübt worden war, war die Freude groß, als das erworbene Dialogwissen auch gleich angewendet werden konnte. Eisbestellung auf Englisch – Englischunterricht mal anders!
