First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||Before checking out, give your hotel room one final sweep to ensure nothing has been left behind, especially on the closet and washstand area.|
|2.||If you have plans near the hotel after checking out but do not want to bring your luggage, ask the hotel to hold it for you until you are able to pick it up.|
|3.||If you do not understand something on the bill, be sure to ask “What is this charge for?”|
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:||Will you be checking out now?|
|A:||I hope you enjoyed your stay with us.|
|B:||I did, thank you.|
|A:||Your total comes to $596.00.|
|B:||I see. May I ask what this charge is for?|
|A:||This is for the mini-bar.|
|B:||And this charge here?|
|A:||This charge is for the meals you had in the restaurant.|
|B:||Oh, I see. Thank you.|
|A:||How will you be paying today?|
|B:||I’d like to pay with my credit card, please.|
|A:||Thank you. Please sign here, and here’s your receipt.|
|B:||Great. Thank you.|
|A:||Thank you for staying at the Seaview Plaza Hotel. Enjoy the rest of your trip.|
|B:||I will. Thanks!|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)
Now, please answer the following questions. I will check if your sentences are complete and if the grammar is correct.
|1.||Have you ever had to clarify an additional charge on a hotel bill?|
|2.||When you stay at a hotel, do you usually pay with credit card or cash?|
|3.||Do you try to avoid extra charges by bringing or buying outside your own snacks and drinks?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
(Please review your student’s answers by sending the correct answers in complete sentences. After that, ask your student to read aloud his or her corrected answers.)
Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
You are checking out of a hotel. You do not understand something in the bill.
(Your tutor will pretend to be the hotel clerk.)
– May I ask what this charge is for?
