First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||When you reserve a room via a travel agent, make sure that you are dealing with a reliable one.|
|2.||Some agents fail to reserve the room even after you have paid for the room.|
|3.||If you are not happy with the quoted price, you may ask, “Are there any less expensive rooms available?”|
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.
(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)
|A:||I’d like to make a reservation for a twin room at the Seaview Plaza Hotel for four nights.|
|B:||Okay. Can you give me the dates you are interested in?|
|A:||Yes. March 18th-21st|
|B:||It looks like we have several rooms available.|
|A:||Great. How much is the room?|
|B:||A twin during the week of March 18th-21st will be $250 a night.|
|A:||Are there any less expensive rooms available?|
|A:||Yes, but it’s a single. Would you like to book it?|
|A:||Yes, please. Thank you.|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)

|2.||If so, did you have a positive experience?|
|3.||What are the advantages of going through a travel agent?|
Now, let’s review your answers.

Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
You need to book a hotel through a travel agent. You will ask if there are any less expensive rooms available.
