Vegetarian/dietary restrictions

Postby zanzaboonda_510344 » February 5th, 2016 5:33 pm

Hi there,

Loving the podcasts so far. Extremely helpful. :)

I was wondering if you could do an episode geared towards vegetarians. E.g., how to say "I'm a vegetarian/vegan. Does this have meat/dairy/eggs/fish flakes/non-vegetable broth?" Etc.

You could also expand it for other dietary needs, such as allergies or medical restrictions. This could be a very important podcast! :)

I'm a vegan, and my daughters are vegetarian. We are planning to visit Japan in March or April, and I'm a little scared of the food situation. Lol

Can you help?

Thanks!

Hi!
If I remember correctly they do have a pod cast mentioning about vegetarian and allergy its on the audio absolute season 1 series but I can't remember which one is it. I hope it helps.

Sincerely,
Paulette

Ah, yes! Absolute Beginner Season 2, Lesson 18. "Being a Vegetarian is a Bit Difficult in Japan". Lol (a kind understatement)

I'll take a listen and see if it fits my needs. Thanks! :D

I checked out the vocab. It seems very basic. Just like, "Is she a vegetarian?" I'll see if there's another one for allergies, etc.

"Is she a vegetarian?" means “彼女はベジタリアンですか.”
