    Restaurant English: Medium, Well.....

    Hi All,

    Recently I watched the DVD movie called Pulp Fiction. In the restaurant, Travolta said I needed the steak bloody as hell.....I was wondering this kind of English would be using in daily life? I just understand rare, medium rare, medium,medium well and well done, is it good enough? Please advise.

    I wouldn't advise using "bloody as hell" it could be taken as extremely offensive.

    If so, I just use the terms, like rare, medium, well done, should be good enough, right?

    There is some vile language in that movie that you should not ever try to emulate.

    Very rare, rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, well done.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
