Role-play is a powerful way to enhance your fluency in a language and encourage you to speak in a flexible way.

Imagine that one of you is a customer in a bar or restaurant and the other is the waiter or waitress. The customer needs to order their drinks or food and the waiter/waitress must serve the customer. Remember to use polite or formal language.
