  ethnic groups and many immigrants from different
  cultures.       In Canada it is common to see
  restaurant which serve food with various flavors
  and originated from different countries. So besides
  employment, eating in Canada will also prove to be
  a valuable   experience to learn about different

•       It is a kind of informal dinner party,
    which is usually held outdoors in the mild
    weather. It may also be given at one’s
    backyard. Relatives, neighbors and friends
    will enjoy the happy get-together in the
    open air. As a rule, everybody is supposed
    to contribute something, such as a dish ,
    some drinks, some fruits, or homemade
    cookies or cakes to the dinner party.
3. A Buffet (自助餐)

Dinners at a buffet will not be required
  be sit at the table. They simply hold
  a tray and serve themselves from a
  table that is set with a variety of
  foods. Then they may move around
  to meet, talk, and eat with others as
  they like.

Para.1   Food likes and dislikes vary from culture to
  culture. It can also be a source of intense personal
  prejudice. Canadians are generally considered to
  be conservative in their tastes but, because of the
  many different ethnic groups in Canada , they have
  also learned to appreciate many different kinds of
Actually, the ability to enjoy different kinds of foods is
  highly regarded in Canada. A Canadian family may
  eat Italian food one night, Chinese food the next –
  then Greek or Japanese food. Eating in Canada will
  provide you a good chance to enjoy various cuisines
  and get in touch different     cultures. Studying the
  cuisine of different cultures is not only fun, but also
  a valuable learning experience.
Canadians often entertain by inviting people to dinner.
  It’s customary to arrive on time for a Dinner party
  and to bring along a bottle of wine or a small
  impersonal gift , such as flowers and candy. Food is
  not brought unless especially asked for by the host
  as, for example ,at a pot- luck dinner. As a general
  rule, everybody contributes some food to a potluck.
Some meals may include appetizers, soup or
  salad before the main course. A typical main
  course includes meat or fish, potatoes or
  rice, or one or two vegetables. Dessert is
  usually served with coffee or tea at the end
  of the meal. Sometimes a dinner is served as
  a buffet: people then serve themselves from
  a table that is set with a variety of foods.
To show that you enjoy a meal, it is polite to
  compliment the quality of the food. The
  hostess     often feels happy if you are
  interested in the recipe of a certain dish. Be
  sure to accept a second helping if you like
  the food and are not full; a Canadian host will
  usually offer it only once. In some other
  countries, however, it is polite to refuse up
  to three times before accepting a second

  to keep the sentence in good balance if it were put
  at the beginning of the sentence.
