First, one must register to use the site, and it is free. After, choose a source and target language, from the twelve languages, namely; English, Norwegian, Spanish, French, German, Gaelic, Italian, Dutch, Slovak, Polish, Finnish and Galician. Enough to greatly expand the opportunities for travel in Europe!
Not Only the Customer but also the Chef and Manager
The learner will first learn a large number of words, in the various parts of the restaurant "The cloche", which will constitute their learning environment. One can choose to start the learning journey in any section of their choice: hall, kitchen, office.
Once this basic vocabulary is acquired (section by section), the learner will have to interact with a counterpart (cook, manager, or customer, depending on the chosen section.) The learner interprets phrases as he/she hears and chooses the appropriate answers, which he/she will hear also.
The learners track their progress in the portfolio that is made available. Additional information on non-verbal communication, important views in the catering industry, and also has the opportunity to use a blog.
Eurocatering is an amazing platform that deserves to be recommended to anyone considering working abroad in the catering industry.
