Hi. I'm trying to get a job at a hotel where you would need to speak English frequently... I'd appreciate any help with English possibly spoken at a hotel.
teddy said:Thanks. What about when you take a reservation from a customer?
teddy said:Guest: Where can I find a good sushi restaurant around here?
Me: Let me see... First, just go out the front door, head down in the direction opposite to the train station. Make a left at the third traffic light and go about a block. There's a road construction up there and you pass it, you will see the sign board of the restaurant "Best Sushi". It's about 5 minutes walk from here.
G: I don't think I got that.
M: Do you want me to draw a map for you?
G: That should help. Thanks.
teddy said:Guest: Is there a men's room on this floor?
Me: Oh, it's on the 2nd floor. Go halfway down the hall and there are stairs. You go up and make a right. It's halfway in the hall.
G: I don't like to go up the stairs. Is there an elevator?
M: Yes. You pass the stairs. It's at the end of the hall.
G: Ok. Then how can I get there from there?
M: You get off the elevator. Walk to your left(? When you get off the elevator, there is a hall sideways and I want to instruct him to go to the left side of the hall), make a left at the first corner. It's on your right.
G: I got it. Thanks.
M: You're welcome.
teddy said:G: We would like to have breakfast.
M: We provide a free breakfast for our guests. Here are the tickets. Each one of you give one of them to the clerk(waiter/waitress). It's a buffet style. You have to pay for alcoholic drinks.
G: I would like to order room service. (Do you have room service?)
M: I'm sorry, we don't have room service. But we have vending machines for snacks on the 3rd, 5th and 8th floor, if you like.
