Bármilyen országba utazunk is, szállásfoglaláskor angol nyelven biztosan boldogulni fogunk. Nézzünk is meg néhány hasznos dolgot ezzel kapcsolatban.
Summer is fast approaching, and more and more people start booking their holidays to get the best deals on vacations. Before I go on vacation, I always plan my trip. First, I usually have a look at some travel websites and review the popular destinations. Of course, I also check the costs involved in travelling to the place I like. If I want to fly, I compare the prices of different airlines. If I travel by train, I usually have a look at train passes and tickets. When looking for accommodation, I usually search websites and read reviews before choosing the right one. I don’t really mind staying at economic hotels, but I’m really concerned about cleanliness and comfort. When I’m not sure about a place, I usually call to ask more questions.
Receptionist:Good afternoon, Cyclops Hotel. Can I help you?
Man: Good afternoon! I’d like to book a room.
Receptionist: Certainly. When for?
Man: From the 15th of June.
Receptionist: For how many nights?
