Explore with our English teacher, Mr Fredrick to learn more about Yang Ren Shuo EP 7.
Good morning, good afternoon and good evening. This is Fredrick Cabanes the Head English Teacher here at SAA Global Malvern House in Singapore. Today I want to teach you how to order lunch at the McDonald’s self-ordering kiosk.Yes, you have it in your country, we have it in my country, but it’s in English. So, the first thing you have to do is choose the button, do you want to ‘Eat In’, in the restaurant, or do you want to ‘Take Away’, take it in a bag and go somewhere outside the restaurant. Then you get to select, do you want to pay ‘cash at the counter’, or do you want to use your ‘Credit Card’? But the buttons will say ‘Cash at Counter’ or ‘Card / Nets’.
After that there will be a button that says ‘Promotions’, always take a look at it because you’ll be presented with two buttons, ‘A La Carte’ or ‘Meals’. A la carte means just the sandwich by itself. Meals means you’ll get a sandwich, a drink, and some side dish.
When you have selected, you’ll be given a choice of fish, chicken, beef or wrap. A wrap is not bread, it is flatbread. After that, you will have to make a choice. If you ordered a ‘Meal’, you have the chance to ‘Upsize’ your meal to a medium drink and medium fries; or you can select ‘Extra Value Meal’, a large fry, large drink. But then, you can ‘Customize’, and customize the type of drink, the size of the drink, you can customize your burger; do you want extra ingredients.
After that, the kiosk will give you a button, where you can say, ‘Are you finished? Are you done?’ Select ‘Done’, and then you will get a detailed order, which you can edit. But if it’s okay you can choose the button ‘Yes’, or if it’s not okay you choose the button ‘No’. If you choose the button ‘Yes,’ you then will have to select how you want to pay. You can choose your ‘Credit Card,’ or you can do a cash payment, you can do Net Flash/Net Debit. That’s something very local to Singapore, so unless you are actually here on a Permanent Residency or Dependent Pass; you probably will never press those two buttons.
After that, you can also cancel it, because you’re not confident of your order. But if you selected the payment, and you made your payment, you’ll get your receipt from the kiosk with a receipt number. Then you can just patiently wait, and there will be a flat-screen TV, listing the numbers, as your order’s getting ready. That’s how you can survive in Singapore, by eating at McDonald’s. Take care and good night.
