No talking in a restaurant - level 2

No talking in a restaurant - level 2

29-10-2013 14:00

If you like eating without talking, there is a restaurant just for you. You can visit it in New York.

The idea of a restaurant where people can’t talk came to the owner’s mind thanks to his stay in India. There, he could eat in silence and he realised that eating like that let him enjoy the food better. He thinks you can truly focus on what you’re eating.

However, it is a bit strange for restaurants because there people usually talk. Some people agree with the owner. Others miss the conversation.

Difficult words: stay (limited time when you live somewhere), silence (situation when it’s quiet), focus (when you focus on something, you don’t think about other things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
