Lesson 4.2 "Restaurant" Feedback

In this lesson, some of the English translations are a bit imprecise.

xiǎng diǎn shénme cài? What do you want to have?
A better translation would be "what dish would you like to order?"

Zhè ge cāntīng yǒu shénme tèsè cài? Any special recommendation?
A better translation would be "What does this restuarant specialize in?"

Běijīng yǒu hěn duō kǎoyā diàn, Beijing has got many restaurants that offer this dish,
I think a better translation is "Beijing has many roast duck restaurants"

Nà wǒ yídìng yào cháng yī xià. Then I'll definitely try the duck.
There is no mention of duck in this sentence. I think a better translation is "Then I will definitely try it out (or give it a taste)."

Also, the extra vocabulary has the usual words we have seen many times in previous lessons. I would be nice if some of the new words and phrases were also included. This would help us when learning this lesson via the tests.

I made this comment a lot about the lessons. I can see that Rocket Chinese went through all of the Unit 1 "Interactive Audio" lessons and added new, appropriate extra vocabulary. This is the sort of thing I was hoping for.
