    seafood course

    Hello,

    I would like to know if this sentence has any sense for you:

    "I will have a seafood course, a glass of water and ice-cream for dessert"

    For me " I will have seafood for main course" would be better, however,

    I am mainly concerned about the " I will have a seafood course..." sentence.

    Thank you for your help

    Re: seafood course

    The sentence is OK as it stands.
    You may need to change depending upon the circumstances or the context. For example, if you are ordering in a restaurant then you would need to identify which seafood you want.

    Re: seafood course

    I agree with ratóncolorao. If you say "I will have a seafood course" it implies a multi-course meal. A pasta course, a seafood course, a salad course, etc.

    "I'll have seafood for my main course" makes much more sense to me if there is only going to be this one main course plus dessert.
    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.
