  • McNormand's Hamburger Shop worksheet
  • Listening script x2 (for section one)
  • (optional) Fake money, eat in and takeout 'food'



  • Copy the worksheet pages 1 and 2 to the front and back of a handout.
  • Page 3 should be copied twice to the front and back
  • Prepare a listening dialog similar to the one provided on page 2 in order to complete the first activity.


  • Practice and review vocabulary and common phrases with the students
  • Use the listening section, "What did they buy?" for warm up. Students will circle either A, B, or C for each listening script.
  • The second warm up is a vocabulary unscramble game.
  • For the main activity, students will role play as clerk and customer using the dialog provided. The clerk will listen to the customer's order and take notes using page 3 of the worksheet to calculate the total price.


  • Consider using cards representing the materials being exchanged (take out, food, money) in order to cut back on materials needed and develop a more TPR approach to an otherwise normal dialog.


  • Have the students in the clerk or customer role for at least 6 conversations with different students. This way the students retain more of the suggested grammar.
