Narrator           
大家好!Tip Top 贸易公司最近不是很顺呐。Mr Ingle 的一根香烟造成了仓库的一把火。现在美国总部的大老板 Mr Socrates 又突然出现在这里。

Mr Socrates       
So honey, are you…?

Anna                   
Anna. I'm Anna, I work here as a sales executive. We haven't met before.

Mr Socrates       
We sure ain't. Looks like I've arrived just in the nick of time.

Paul                     
What's going on… oh, Mr Socrates! Golly gosh, what an unexpected...

Mr Socrates       
Unexpected alright. Looks like this company is in a mess.

Paul                   
Err yes. It was OK when I popped out for some biscuits… erm, would you like one?

Mr Socrates       
Biscuits?! They're cookies, man. Now what do I have to do to get a triple-shot, organic, skinny cappuccino round here?

Anna                 
I'll get you one Mr Socrates.

Mr Socrates       
It's OK honey. I need you to book me a hotel room. You... what's your name again… Paul… can you fetch me one?

Narrator             
好的,安娜。赶快订个宾馆房间给 Mr Socrates,这可是件很容易的事儿。

Anna                 
Well, I've never done it before.

Narrator             
没问题。你给宾馆打电话的时候可以说:

Hello, I'd like to check availability and prices for a room, please. 你好, 我想确认一下你们有没有空房和价格。
Does the price include breakfast? 价格包括早餐吗?
Are there any business facilities such as internet and wi-fi? 请问有没有商务服务比如互联网和无线上网设施?
I'd like to go ahead and make the reservation, please. 那好,我想先预订房间。

这该差不多了。

Anna                 
OK I'll give it a try. But where shall I look?

Narrator             
先在网上找找吧。一定要五星级的, 他可是重量级人物,可不能怠慢了。祝你好运。

Anna                  
Thanks. I better get back to the office and get started.

Tom                  
Hi Anna.

Anna                 
Oh hi Tom. Well done for saving Mr Ingle in that fire. You were very brave.

Tom                   
Oh, it was nothing really. So… err… what are you doing?

Anna                   
I've got to book a hotel for Mr Socrates.

Tom                   
No! You know, we must be in trouble. He never visits.

Anna                  
Really? So where shall I book him in to?

Tom                   
Well my friend runs a fantastic hotel – it's five-star! It's called The Royal Imperial. Look, I've got his number. Give him a call, mention my name. You're bound to get a special rate.

Anna                   
Thanks Tom.

Tom                   
No problem. Oh but don't forget, I've heard Mr S only likes a room with a single bed in it. He gets spooked out if there's another empty bed.

Anna                   
Oh right. OK, I might as well give it a try.

Receptionist       
Hello. Royal Imperial Hotel.

Anna                 
Oh, hello. I'd like to check availability and rates for a room.

Receptionist       
When for?

Anna                   
For three nights from tonight. Your best room, please!

Receptionist       
All our rooms are the best! But, yes, we have one. It's £100 a night.

Anna                   
Right. I work with Tom… Tom Darcy. His friend runs the hotel. I wondered if you could offer me a special rate?

Receptionist       
Tom Darcy? No I've never heard of him. Sorry, it's still £100.

Anna                   
Does the price include breakfast?

Receptionist       
Yes. We offer a full continental breakfast of toast, or bread, oh, and tea… or coffee… and cereal.

Anna               
Oh. And do you have any business facilities?

Receptionist     
Well, we've got paper and pens.

Anna                 
I was thinking, internet, wi-fi, shoe-shine?

Receptionist       
Yes. We've got that.

Anna                   
Good. And most importantly, is this a single room?

Receptionist       
We've only got twin rooms.

Anna                   
Twins? You've only got room for twins?

Receptionist     
No. We could take a bed out and just leave one in, if you want?

Anna                   
Oh that would be perfect. In that case, I'd like to go ahead and make a reservation, please.

Receptionist       
Good. How would you like to pay? 

Narrator             
不错,安娜订好了房间。不过我感觉 Tom 的推荐并不像他说的那么好。让我们再复习一下订宾馆旅店时用到的一些短语。

Hello, I'd to check availability and prices for a room, please.
Does the price include breakfast?
Are there any business facilities such as internet and wi-fi?
I'd like to go ahead and make the reservation, please.

不知道 Mr Socrates 会不会喜欢他的住房?他对什么事情都很挑剔的。我们下期节目再看看他的反应吧。Bye bye!
