 English translation

Hello, today we’re going to study how to make an order after arriving at a restaurant. Last time we studied what to say in Japanese before being shown to your seat at a restaurant, so for those of you who haven’t seen it, please watch it.

First of all, when you get to your table the waiter comes. If you are asked “Are you ready to order?” one of the people in your group can say “Who’s drinking beer? Who’s drinking sake? Who’s drinking wine?”. You then say “2 beers, 3 sakes, 4 wines and 1 orange juice please”. That’s it.

honestly,this is the most useful lesson i’ve ever learn.I mean by myself.because the japanese lesson is so expensive,can’t afford to pay it,so i kinda learn hiragana and katakana from youtube.but the problem is, it really annoyed when there are some kanji in a sentence.can’t pronounce it in japs.
But in this video,every words she said are all i know how to pronounce those kanji in really helps.thank you.
