Lesson Transcript

In the last lesson, we learned how to make a reservation in a restaurant. Now that you know how to get a table, you have another big issue to tackle. If you want to enjoy your meal, the smoking issue is very important. If you are a smoker and you enter a non-smoking establishment, or if you are a non-smoker and enter a smoking establishment, this could ruin your entire meal.
In today's lesson, we'll cover how to ask for a smoking or non-smoking table. Keep in mind that some restaurants have a non-smoking policy, which may be by their own rules or by law. In that case you don't have much of a choice.
Let's imagine first that you are a smoker, if you already aren't. Before entering a restaurant, you need to ask, Excuse me, is smoking allowed here?
Now let's go and see the possible answers. You will either get the answer, yes, it is or no, it isn't.
Now, if you know that smoking is allowed and you want to smoke your cigarettes, you can request, Smoking area please. Once again, that's Smoking area please.
On the other hand, if smoking makes you choke and you don't want to be around the area, you simply request, Non-smoking area please.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- Excuse me, is smoking allowed here?
- Smoking area please.
- Non-smoking area please.
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!

Hi Waran,


I think it's a little unusual to ask people to give you a cigar. They are usually expensive.


If you want to ask for a cigar, though, you might say, "If it's okay with you, could I have a cigar?"


If you're buying the cigar, though, you could simply say, "I'd like a cigar, please."


Let us know if you have any other questions!
