English Conversation: Hotel Recommendations
Listen to the conversation, then read the explanation of the words and phrases.
Amanda: “I’m looking for a budget hotel in Orlando. Have you ever stayed at the Comfort Hotel?”
Joe: “Yes… I wouldn’t recommend it.”
Amanda: “Why not?”
Joe: “Granted, it’s cheap, but the place is filthy, the beds are uncomfortable, there’s no A/C, the breakfast is pretty skimpy… and the staff couldn’t care less about the guests.”
Amanda: “Oh. I guess you get what you pay for. How long did you stay there?”
Joe: “Just one night, when my flight was canceled due to bad weather. It’s bearable if you just need a place to crash, but you definitely don’t want to book a vacation there. Unless you enjoy sharing your room with cockroaches.”
Amanda: “Hmm, I’ll pass. Hopefully I can find a decent place that won’t cost a fortune.”
Amanda is looking for a budget hotel – this means a hotel that is inexpensive – it doesn’t cost very much money. When she asks Joe about the Comfort Hotel, Joe gives her a list of negative points about it.
Joe begins by saying “Granted, it’s cheap…” the word “granted” in this situation means “I acknowledge that” – you can use it to recognize a fact before presenting some counterpoints (facts on the opposite side).
Joe says the hotel is filthy – that means “extremely dirty and disgusting.” Also, the beds are uncomfortable and there’s no A/C – air conditioning. The breakfast is skimpy – that means there is less food than there should be; the quantity of food is inadequate. Finally, the hotel staff “couldn’t care less” about the guests – that means the people who work at the hotel don’t care at all about the people who are staying there.
Amanda uses the phrase “you get what you pay for.” This expression means “If you don’t pay much money for something, then it is probably of bad quality.” If you pay more, then you are more likely to get something that is high-quality.
Joe only spent one night at the C

Vocabulary is one of the keys to speaking fluent English. Even if your grammar is perfect, if you don’t know the correct words to express yourself in English, you will find it difficult to speak fluently. Luckily, improving your vocabulary is one of the most fun aspects of learning English. Follow these ten top tips to improve your English vocabulary and see how fun and productive your study time can be.
It’s easier to memorize words based on a common theme. Make your own connections between words and possibly organize them in a spider diagram or on the same pages of your notebook. The theme might be a topic or situation (Eg. words for talking about food), phrasal verbs using a common word (Eg. phrasal verbs containing the word ‘get’) or words that have a grammar point in common (Eg. verbs that take a gerund).
Actually using vocabulary can help it stick in your mind. Write sentences with new vocabulary words or compose a story using a group of words or expressions. If you are out and about, you can make the example sentences in your mind if you don’t have a pen and paper handy.
Become an artist by drawing pictures related to the words you study. Your drawings can help trigger your memory in the future. This works really well for (visual learners [link to article on learning styles]) and even if you are not a great artist, a drawing can often help fix a word or idiom in your memory.
Get your moves on by acting out words and expressions you learn. Or, imagine and act out a situation where you would need to use them. If you have a (study partner[link to tips article that contains this tip]) act out a word or expression from your notebook and see if he or she can guess what it it then swap over and try to guess what your partner is acting out. If you are alone, use a mirror and pretend you are having a conversation with someone using your new vocabulary.

English Phrases For The Supermarket
Let’s go to the supermarket or grocery store.
When you go in, you’ll take a shopping cart – or a basket if you only want to buy a few things.
To ask an employee of the store for help, you can say:
“Where can I find ketchup? ”
“It’s on aisle 12.”
“Do you have non-fat milk? ”
“Yes, in the dairy section.”
The employee might refer you to an aisle – aisles are the corridors in the supermarket. Or they might tell you to go to one of these sections of the store:
Dairy section – Milk, yogurt, butter, and cheese
Produce section – Fresh fruits and vegetables
Frozen food section – Ice cream, pre-prepared meals
Bakery – Bread, muffins, cakes
Deli – Sliced meat and cheese for sandwiches
Ethnic foods – International foods
If the store doesn’t have the item available right now, the employee will say:
“Sorry, it’s out of stock.”
“Sorry, we’re out of unsalted peanuts at the moment.”
In this case, you can return to the store later to check if the item is available.
If the store never offers the item, the employee will say:
“Sorry, we don’t carry mango juice.”
In this case, you need to go to a different store to find it.
You can buy food in different types of packaging:
A can of soup
A jar of jelly / jam
A box of cereal
A package of pasta
A carton of milk
A bottle of wine
A loaf of bread
