, travel agencies, traditions and related professional skills such as dealing with complaints, talking on the telephone, recommending sights and taking orders in a restaurant. The four skills reading, writing, listening and speaking can be practiced and developed in the student's book. Each unit contains one or more listening tasks designed to get students used to a variety of native and non-native speakers using English as an international language
. The tapescripts for each listening part are provided at the end of the Student's Book on pages 130-144. A language component introduced in each unit is highlighted in the Language focus sections and followed by practices. The vocabulary section is topicbased and directly related to the hotel and tourism industry. There is a strong focus on pronunciation throughout the course, especially on intonation and stress patters and the speaking section, which is designed to bring the language previously studied into active use. In the writing part students learn the importance of effective communication on message, style and organization in formal and informal written documents. The reading section in each unit guides the students on how to approach the text to improve students' reading skills. HOW TO STUDY EACH UNIT As you may have seen, each unit is divided into different parts in relation to the linguistic skills. All of them are specified on the left side of the page, in different colour to indicate what skill is strongly used in that section. Each part has specific purposes, for example: · The reading section presents information about the topic of the unit for you to do the exercises written below or before and increased your knowledge on the topic. Besides, you are going to find related exercises in the workbook to reinforce your reading skills. · The vocabulary part provides you with the specific words commonly used in certain topics of tourism industry. In this section you are given key words or phrases that will help you to understand better the topic and facilitate fluent communication. Remember that you should use this vocabulary in oral presentations, oral exams and group discussions in class. Each vocabulary part has its own exercise in the workbook for you to practice. · As you can see, there is a clear focus on the speaking skill throughout the course as the ability to communicate well in the hotel and tourism industry. There is a variety of speaking activities in the Student's Book for you to improve your fluency 5
and accuracy. You should perform these activities in pairs as the book states or by yourself in order to be prepared for the workshops where the speaking skill is going to be widely developed. · The listening extracts, which are in the CD, are relevant to the industry, including dialogues among hotel staff and guests, travel agents and customers and a tour guide describing different places. You should use this part for self-study to check language and obviously to check your listening ability. Listen to these extracts and complete the exercises on the book. You can even listen and read the tapescript simultaneously. · In the language focus boxes you are given structures about the use of grammar that will clarify you the grammatical points presented in each unit. You can go to the end of the student's book and look for the explanations about language use at the section called "Grammar Reference". Do all the exercises from the Workbook and the exercises from the consolidation sections called which are at the end of units 4, 8 and 12.

Exercise 11, page 34 · Outward flight was delayed · Check-in staff were unhelpful · There was no representative from Med Tours · Food in hotel lacked variety and service was poor · Beach was across a busy main road and least 20 minute's walk away · Shops in the resort were crowded and expensive · Noisy roadworks in town · Had to leave resort at dawn to get to airport in time for return flight: the stay in not seven days. Exercise 12, page 34 · At the airport, the tour operator should keep their clients fully and regularly updated and provide refreshments depending on the length of the delay. If there is not tour operator representative at the airport, one from the airline should be made available and clients informed at check- in who to see. 34
· Hotel service is the responsibility of the hotel. · Hotel advertised as `a stone's throw from the beach' the tour operator is responsible for the accuracy of its brochures. · In reference to shops, brochure should state something like `lively resort'. · Roadworks next to the hotel must be notified before departure and, if severe, the client given the option to change hotels or cancel at no charge. · A seven-day holiday counts as a room being available to the client over seven nights, if this was the case the client does not have a case. Genuine case for compensation: · Beach was across a busy main road and at least 20 Minutes' walk away.

In reported speech we don't usually repeat everything the person said, we just summarize it e.g. suggest, promise. You can say (that) something or tell someone (that) something e.g. he said (that) he was unhappy. He told me (that) he was unhappy. Tell somebody to do something is used to report an imperative. Tell must be followed by an object pronoun. The verb forms usually move one tense into the past. It is not always necessary to changed the verb, e.g. for 6 you could write. He told me to tell you that he loves you very much. It is possible to change the verb but its sounds formal. (Similarly time words only change if the time reference has changed between the direct speech and reporting it. Hence tomorrow in no. 1 does not change).

Exercise 5, page 73 Suggested answer Dear Mr Williams There is a large variety of things to do and see in Madrid. If you are interested in art, I recommend visiting the Prado Museum, which contains the finest collection of Spanish painting in the world.
You might also like to think about going to the Royal Palace. If you want to go shopping, go to El rastro. However, if I were you I'd get there early because it gets very crowded in the afternoon In the evening, I suggest going to Casa Patas to see a flamenco show. Finally, why don't you spend one day outside Madrid, in Toledo, a Roman fortress that can be explored on foot? I hope you enjoy your stay. Best wishes. Unit 9 Exercise 4, page 74 1. 18 kg. 2.
