Hola! I have to write this paragraph in Spanish for school. I have tried my best to translate it correctly but I want to make sure it is correct. Would you please check it for me?

**Emilia calls her friend Amelia and asks her to go to the Cafe Guanajuato. The cafe is on Hidalgo Street. Emilia likes the food there and the prices are cheap. They arrive:

Emilia: "Good afternoon. The menu, please."

Waitress: "What can I bring you today'"

Amelia: "I want broccoli soup, chicken with rice, beans, and coffee."

Emelia: "I only want a salad of lettuce, cauliflower, and tomato with French dressing, and tea."

Waitress: "Do you want dessert? We have ice cream, custard, and fresh fruit with cheese."

Emilia: "Yes, I want fresh fruit only."

Amelia: "I do not want dessert, thank you."**

Here is how I translated it in Spanish:

**Emilia llama su amiga Amelia y la pide a ir al Cafe Guanajuato. El cafe es en el calle Hidalgo. Emilia gustan la comida alli y los precios son baratos. Llegan:

Emilia: "Buenas tardes. El menu, por favor.

Camarera: " Que traigo Uds. hoy'"

Amelia: "Quiero la sopa de brecol el pollo con el arroz los frijoles y el cafe."

Emilia: "Quiero solo una ensalada de la lechuga la coliflor y el tomate con (dressing') frances y el te."

Camarera: "Quiere el postre? Tenemos el halado las natillas la fruta fresca con el queso."

Emilia: "Si, quiero solo la fruta fresca.

Amelia: "No quiero el postre, gracias."**

Let me know what I need to fix.

Thanks!

There are a few errors I noticed, I can't take Spanish until I'm in 11th grade, and I'll be in 9th Grade after Summer is over smile
Spanish is required at my School, and I'd say I'll be the only one that knows the whole language.
( I don't know the whole language now, but surley I will by then.

I think your sentences need some corrections

Emilia llama a su amiga Amelia y le pide que vaya (con ella) al Café Guanajuato. El café está en [del]el[/del] la calle Hidalgo. A Emilia le gusta[del]n[/del] la comida de allí (allá) y los precios son baratos. Llegan:

Emilia: 'Buenas tardes. El menú, por favor.

Camarera: ? ¿Qué les traigo a Uds. hoy'?

Amelia: 'Quiero (la) sopa de brécol, (el) pollo con [del]el[/del] arroz, (los) frijoles y (el) café.?

Emilia: 'Quiero sólo una ensalada de [del]la[/del] lechuga, (la) coliflor y (el) tomate con aderezo (aliño) francés y (el) té.?

Camarera: '¿Quiere (el) postre? Tenemos (el) helado, (las) natillas y (la) fruta fresca con [del]el[/del] queso.?

Emilia: 'Sí, quiero sólo (la) fruta fresca.

Amelia: 'No quiero (el) postre, gracias.?

P.S. You can omit (drop) all articles (in brackets). It sounds better (more natural) without them.

Emilia: "Buenas tardes. El menú, por favor.

Camarera: " ¿Qué traigo Uds. hoy'" (¿Cómo les puedo servir hoy? - Hoy can I serve you today. Also, to type the ¿ you hold down ALT and type 168 - unless you are using a laptop, I don't know how to help you then.)

Amelia: "Quiero la sopa de brecol, arroz con pollo, los frijoles y el café."

Emilia: "Quiero solo una ensalada de [del]la[/del] lechuga, [del]la[/del] coliflor y [del]el[/del] tomate con aderezo(dressing') frances y el té."

Emilia: "Sí, quiero solo la fruta fresca. (I don't think that you need la here, but you are specifying, so, it sounds ok.)

Amelia: "No quiero el postre, gracias." (I don't think that you need el here, but you are specifying, so, it sounds ok.)

Let me know what I need to fix.

In Argentina they refer to waiters as mosos/as

This is my guess, maybe someone else has different suggestions.

(initial attempt; wait for someone else, I probably missed a few things)

Emilia: "Quiero sólo una ensalada de [del]la[/del] lechuga, [del]la[/del] coliflor y [del]el[/del] tomate con salsa francesa y [del]el[/del] té."

Camarera: "Quiere el postre? Tenemos [del]el[/del] helado, [del]las[/del] natillas y [del]la[/del] fruta fresca con [del]el[/del] queso."

Emilia: "Sí, quiero sólo la fruta fresca.

Amelia: "No quiero el postre, gracias."
