    Answer the following questions about mealtimes (las comidas). Don’t be afraid to consult the dictionary!

    Ejemplo:

    Table 8.2. Las Comidas Vocabulary.
    SPANISH ENGLISH
    las comidas meals
    el desayuno breakfast

    la cena dinner
    1. Típicamente, ¿qué comes para el desayuno? ¿Tomas café o té?
    2. ¿Qué comes para el almuerzo?
    3. ¿Y para la cena?

    Para pensar

    Meals and mealtimes vary all throughout the Spanish-speaking world. In Central America, the main meal is el almuerzo and it takes place in the late afternoon. In Mexico this same meal is known as simply la comida. Generally, in Latin America, people in the workforce will take a long lunch break, return to work, and finish the workday between 7pm and 9pm. In Spain tapas are popular and these are small sharing plates. When do you typically take your lunch break? What is the most important meal for you?
