Translation for Reference :

Is it all right for your order?

Woman: Well, one pizza hasn’t been brought out yet.

Man: Oh, is that so? Well, 2 types of pasta and 1 seafood pizza you ordered are already here.

Woman: Yeah. I also ordered a mushroom pizza.

Man: Is that so? I’m sorry. We will make it immediately, so please wait for a moment.

Woman: I don’t have much time, so please hurry. And I would like two more cups of coffee.

2.Spaghetti, orange juice.

3.Mushroom pizza, juice, coffee

4.Mushroom pizza, coffee

Instruction to practice:

Exercise format:  Catch the request

In order to understand and do this form of exercise effectively, you can apply the following steps:

1. Catch the topic and the question :

The situation taking place here is:


At the restaurant, a waiter and a woman is talking.

=> The topic: Predicting about the food.

The question is:


What will the waiter bring later?

2. Note the main ideas:

According to the topic, you should focus on important key words relating to the food that the waiter will bring later:

パスタ2種類とシーフードピザ (2 types of pasta and a seafood pizza)   ->   お持ちしています (is bringing here)

きのこのピザ (mushroom pizza)    ->   すぐにお作り(will make immediately)

コーヒーのおかわり2つ (2 more cups of coffee)

3. Choosing the answer:

+ With the food brought first: Spaghetti and orange juice (スパゲッティ、オレンジジュース) => We can eliminate answer 2 and answer 3 because they include orange juice.

+ The next 2 dishes are pasta and seafood pizza ( パスタ2種類とシーフードピザ   ) that are bringing ( お持ちしています), so the waiter doesn’t need to bring them later => We eliminate answer 1 because it includes both pasta and seafood pizza.

+ Mushroom pizza ( きのこのピザ ) has been ordered (きのこのピザもお願いしたんですけど), but it hasn’t been brought yet. (ピザが1つ、まだ来ていないんですが). Then the woman also ordered 2 more cups of coffee (コーヒーのおかわり2つ、お願いします) => The waiter needs to bring mushroom pizza and coffee.

So we choose answer 4. きのこのピザ、コーヒー
