Lesson Transcript

Today's lesson is not only for all of the vegetarians out there, but it's also for anyone with an adversity to a particular food! There are many reasons a person won't eat a particular food, and there may be instances when communicating this is necessary. Today, we'll go over some phrases to make sure you don't get any unwanted surprises on the plate.
If you are a vegetarian, you can say, I'm a vegetarian. Once again, that's I'm a vegetarian.
Another way you can communicate that you don't eat a particular food is by saying just that!
You can also say, I don't eat meat. Start off the sentence with I don't, then say the thing, eat meat. I don't eat meat.
We can use this sentence pattern for other kinds of food by simply changing just one word! So let's look at some other possibilities. Let's try "cheese," I don't eat cheese.
If you want to make sure some food doesn't have an ingredient you can't or you don't want to eat, you should simply ask about it. For example if you want to make sure a meal doesn't have meat, you should ask, Does this have meat? The question starts with does, and then you indicate the food, this and then the ingredient. Have meat. So the question is, Does this have meat?
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!
- I am vegetarian.
- I don't eat meat.
- I don't eat cheese.
- Does this have meat?
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!

Hi there Liandro,


Thanks for taking the time to ask your question.


You would say "Does this have meat in it?" or "Does this have meat?"


I hope this helps. 😄👍

Hi Arthur,


You can say both "I am vegetarian" and "I am a vegetarian", but the audio and text should match. Thanks for pointing that out! We'll get it corrected as soon as possible.


Thanks :thumbsup:
