Dialogue 1

Read the dialogue aloud with your teacher.



Hi, welcome. What can I get for you today?

I’d like a grande iced americano, please.

Have you tried our new cold brew coffee?

Oh. Is that different than an iced americano?

Yes, a little. It’s coffee that is brewed in cold water instead of hot water.

Does it taste different?

It has a richer taste. Many people prefer it.

Ok, I’ll try it. But with half ice, please.

Actually, there’s no ice in it. Would you like it sweetened?

No sugar, please.

No problem.
