1. Read and Write Unit 6: Self-Reliance
Review Blog Who will benefit the new digital dining technology the most? Write 5-8 sen in response.
TS   I think their customers will benefit the most from the new gadget.
SS-1 First, customers can choose the way they order their meals. With the touch screen monitor, they can visually and easily see the entire menu with color photos without reading the descriptions or being described by a server. It’s much easier and more reliable presentation than human memory, especially for those who are not comfortable in English or less social customers. And of course, they can ask the servers for help if they want to.
SS-2 Another reason is the tip. If the customers can order via the machine, they won’t feel obligated to pay as much tip as they usually do to the server at an ordinary restaurant.
CS The new digital dining seems to provide more freedom and less obligation to their customers.
