Lesson Transcript

Admissions in the UK
Throughout the UK there are many fascinating attractions, including scenic historical sites, world-class museums, and renowned theatres. So in this lesson we’ll take a look at buying tickets to help you experience what the UK has to offer.
If you’re going to watch a musical in London’s West End – for example, The Phantom of the Opera – you might ask: “One ticket to The Phantom of the Opera, please.” First of all, you say the number of tickets you want, in this case ‘one’, and then the word ‘ticket’, followed by the name of the show, ‘to the Phantom of the Opera’, and lastly ‘please’.
“One ticket to The Phantom of the Opera, please.”
If you’re going to the theatre with friends, then you can change the number at the beginning of your ticket request. So, if four of you are going, then you would say: “Four tickets to The Phantom of the Opera, please.”
As a quick reminder, here are the numbers from one to ten again.
1 one
2 two
3 three
4 four
5 five
6 six
7 seven
8 eight
9 nine
10 ten
There are often two or three ticket checks when visiting the theatre, so remember to keep your ticket with you at all times. Staff may ask: “Your ticket, please.”
If you decide to visit a museum or historical site instead of the theatre, then your ticket request will be slightly different. You will simply have to say: “One ticket, please.” Or, if you are in a group of three, for example, “Three tickets, please.”
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!
- One ticket to The Phantom of the Opera please.
- Four tickets to The Phantom of the Opera please.
- Your ticket, please.
- One ticket, please.
- Three tickets, please.


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