Either that or ask someone who plays the restaurant games on Facebook. You might do a search for hints or cheats for those games. They would tell you how best to arrange your restaurant to maximize flow and service.

That actually sounds like a good project in itself to have the kids solve. In fact, your situation actually could be worked so that the kids came up with solutions and moved everything themselves to see what worked best. But 1) I don't know what kind of class it is (but even if it was a language class the instructions/debates/commands/requests would be useful vocabulary practice) and 2) I'm not a teacher. But it seems like it could be a lot of fun and rewarding for the students if they figured it out themselves.
Are you getting involved in an "English Village" program? I'm currently preparing students to take part in one, and as a "potential customer" would be happy to share my experience, including examples of what I think should have been provided by the hosting school to help us prepare.

It's "per se", and should be italicized because it's Latin.
OK. Sorry about that. Carry on...
