Morgan: are you good at cooking?
John: no, but I'm pretty good at eating!
M: do you prefer chinese food or Western food?
J: well, to be honest with you, Chinese food is really different from western food.
M: are you used to the food here?
J: I'm not really used to it yet。
M: what's your favorite Chinese dish?
J: like most foreigners, I really like Sweet and Sour Pork and Kung Pao Chicken. I eat them almost every day.
M: have you tried traditional Chinese dumplings yet?
J: I tried once, but they are quite difficult to eat with chopsticks。
M: you know, foreigners are not expected to use chopsticks proficiently。 If you do, you'll give your Chinese friends quite an impression。
J: that's good to know. I'd like to try more Chinese food, but since I can't read any of the menus in the restaurants near my home, it's difficult to try new food.
M: if you want, I can introduce you to some typical Chinese dishes。
J: that would be great。 I really only want to taste real Chinese food, not just the food that foreigners like to eat!
M: if you haven't tried Beijing duck yet, I'd like to treat you to a meal at a famous duck restaurant near Qianmen。 It would be a pity if you left without tasting it!
