The fire at Tip Top Trading is out and there’s going to be an investigation. But there’s a more serious issue to deal with; the arrival of the big boss from America, Mr Socrates. He is a particularly fussy man but because of his importance he gets his own way, including the type of hotel room he stays in. This is something that Anna will find out when she has to book his room.

This programme focuses on the phrases to use when booking a hotel room.

Phrases from the programme:
Hello, I’d to check availability and prices for a room please.
