① Tipping          チップ

Please tip at restaurants. It is not a requirement to tip, but it is considered rude not to tip. Tips are usually 15% of the price with tax, so if a meal is $10.00 plus 8% tax, your total will be $10.80, and you should tip at least $1.62.If the service was wonderful, you can tip more than 15%, or if it was terrible, you don’t have to tip. You tip when you pay, either at the register or at the table, depending on the restaurant. If you pay with card, you write your tip on the receipt. If you pay with cash, you leave your tip on the table, or put it in the tip jar at the register.


② Juice & ジュース
日本語のジュースはコーラなど、果汁だが、英語のジュースは果汁だけです!コーラなどを注文する場合には、飲み物の名前か、soda (ソーダ)を言ってください!
コーラはジュースじゃない?! – English Hacker

食べ残しのお持ち帰りのボックス。 “Can I get a box?” Boxは一番普通の表現です。多分、教科書はdoggy bagが書いてありますが、doggy bagはあまり使いません。

④ ウェイターが何回もテーブルに戻って来るから、大きい声で呼ばないでください。正しい呼び方を知りたい人は下のブログを読んでみてください。
