Lesson Transcript

British Hotel, Part 1: Check-In
In this lesson we’ll cover a vital part of your trip to the UK – checking-in at a hotel!
There are many accommodation options in the UK, including hotels, bed and breakfasts, and hostels. But the language you use to check-in will almost always be the same.
There are two possible phrases that you can use when entering a hotel. If you have already booked a room, you can say: “I have a reservation.” “I have a reservation.”
If you haven’t booked a room, then you could say: “I would like a room.” We start with the polite request ‘I would like’, followed by what you want, in this case ‘a room’.
“I would like a room.”
After this, the hotel staff will probably ask for your name.
They will say: “Your name, please.” You may also be asked: “Can you spell it?” This is a common question because people don’t want to make mistakes when spelling names.
Okay, to close out this lesson we’d like you to practice what you’ve just learned. I’ll provide you with the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So good luck!
- I have a reservation
- I would like a room
- Your name, please?
- Can you spell it?


Alright! That’s going to do it for this lesson. Bye!
