Talk German - Checking into a hotel
A couple arrive at the hotel reception and mountain huts in the Bavarian Alps which offer accommodation for hikers and follow an old tradition: No guest can be turned away.
The clip starts with a short English description of the Chiemsee. It then introduces the phrases to book a hotel room. The vocabulary is then put in a real setting by a couple who are phoning a hotel to find a room. There is a short description in English of a hotel in that area and then further vocabulary about how long you want to stay and what sort of room you want.
The clip starts with a description of the area in English. A German lady then talks about what it is like to live in the foothills of the Alps. A Hut owner then speaks about an incident in German, where 15 people needed to stay for the night as they got into trouble whilst out walking.
This clip starts off explaining that you can also stay at a convent when you want to stay at the Chiemsee in Germany. A nun and the man discuss the history of having guests there, as well as the advantages of it and the difference between staying at a convent and in a hotel. At the end, the English speaking narrator gives another explanation of what the nuns do in the convent.
