Hi! Welcome to “English for Lake Atitlán
Restaurant Servers”. Today’s topic is Guatemalan fruits and vegetables. Here’s a photo of a fruit or a vegetable that
I don’t know. Are these tomatoes? Are these mangoes? I think these are lemons. I think you call these “miltomates” and you
use them to make a spicy sauce. Are these red peppers? Do you use this pepper to make “pepian” sauce? Wow! That’s a lot of peppers. Are they spicy? Are these potatoes? We have a vegetable like this in the United
States. It’s called eggplant. I think this is called “yuca”, but what do
you use this to make? These look like mushrooms. That yellowish fruit….Those are papayas,
right? These are melons. We have the same fruit in the United States.
We call it watermelon, but it’s a different shape. It’s not round. It’s oval in the United
States. What’s this? It looks like melon, but I’ve
never seen this before. What’s it called? This looks like another kind of melon. What’s
it taste like? Is it sweet? Is this papaya or mango? I think these are prunes. They’re dried….plums. I think these are raisins….They’re dried
grapes. This looks like some sort of a spice….maybe
paprika? What’s this? And what do you use it for? What’s in this bag? It looks like corn, but
it’s black. Here’s a vegetable I know. It’s called string
beans. Here’s another vegetable I know. This looks
like corn…. sweet corn. Is this cabbage? Are these radishes? Are these blackberries? What’s this fruit called? I’ve never seen
it before. What does it taste like? Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s lesson
on Guatemalan fruits and vegetables. It was fun to go to the market. I learned a lot…about
new vegetables and new fruits. It’s important to explain to your customers
what the names of these fruits and vegetables are, what they taste like, and what they’re
used in. For example, maybe they’re used to make a
sauce or maybe they’re used in a dessert. Thank you and come again to “English for Lake
