Hi, Bob the Canadian here.
Let's learn English at a hotel.
Well hey, it's Bob the Canadian here.
We're going to check into this hotel and I'mgoing to show you a lot of different parts of this hotel so that you can learn some English.
We're here today at a hotel in Kitchener, Ontario and we're here because Jen has a conference today, so I said I would come with and I wouldmake a video to help you learn English.
But before we get started, don't forget toclick that subscribe button down there and give me a thumbs up at some point during thisvideo.
But I think we should head inside and we shouldcheck in.
That's usually the first thing you do whenyou get to a hotel.
So we're here in the hotel l-, oh, the doorsjust opened on me.
They're automatic doors, by the way.
We're here in the hotel lobby.
That's the front desk where I am going towalk over and check in.
It should go pretty quickly.
I already have a reservation.
I booked the room online, so as long as Igive my name, they should be able to check me in and I should get my keys and be ableto head up to my room.
So let's head over there.
Hi, welcome sir.
How may I help you today? I have a reservation under Bob the Canadian.
That is great.
Very nice to meet you.
Just need a piece of photo ID and a creditcard as well so that I can assure the payment as well.
Here you go.
Thank you very much.
So Shrey's just checking me in.
I already booked online, so I don't have todo anything more than let him know my name.
And that should be enough.
It looks like he has found my reservation, which is awesome.
That is totally right, here's your registrationcard, sir.
Just need your signatures at the bottom, initialsby our smoking policy.
Stating that you will not smoke in the room.
Email address for our record, and furtherdetails.
I will do that.
I'll get the formalities in here.
Okay, thank you very much.
So I have to fill in just a little bit ofinformation here.
My email address, the license plate of myvehicle so that I can park in the parking lot, and my signature on the bottom.
So I think that's all taken care of.
There you go.
It is, it is.
I was just ask you how many keys you needfor your room.
So Shrey is making keys right now, becausewe don't use old fashioned keys any more in hotels in Canada.
We actually use key cards.
He's making one for me and one for Jen.
So in a moment, I think we'll be all set.
All set? All set, sir.
So this is your key.
It's going to be a room number.
And your wi-fi password is on the top.
As a repeat visitor, sir, I’m giving youa complimentary breakfast.
Don't forget to grab the breakfast tomorrow.
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much sir.
It's my pleasure.
Well, I think we're going to head up to ourroom.
So we're in room 1012, or room 1012.
I just hit the button, and the elevator hasopened.
So we're going to head in here and we're goingto go to room 10, hopefully you can see that.
The doors will close, and hopefully we makeour way up there.
You can see the numbers going pretty quickly.
Six, seven, eight, by the way, in Canada, we start with the lobby, and then we go to floor two, and then three.
I know that if you are in Britain it mightbe slightly different, I have to check that online.
But here we are at floor 10, let's find ourroom.
So that's kind of handy because this arrowtells us that room 1012 is that way.
So let's walk down the hall, and oh, thereit is.
We have found our room.
So as I mentioned, we use key cards to openthe doors in our hotels.
So this will be called a key card, becauseit's a key and it's a card.
So we'll put it in here.
If you go too fast, sometimes it doesn't work.
But here we are in our hotel room.
Well, we made it.
I'm just going to put my suitcase down overhere.
There's a nice little spot for my suitcase, and I brought my banana.
Again, thank you to all of you that live incountries that produce bananas.
I love them.
So we came in through the door here.
There's a little bit of information here forhow to evacuate the building if there was an emergency.
So on the back of every hotel door, you havethat.
A nice mirror, and behind it, a closet.
This is the bathroom, we'll look at that ina little bit.
But this is the hotel room.
So you can see there's two queen sized beds.
There's a desk with a chair.
It's kind of nice that there's a desk, becauseI'm going to be editing a movie there later today.
There's a microwave, and there is a smallcoffeemaker.
That will be yummy for tomorrow morning, whenI make my decaf coffee.
And down here we have a refrigerator.
There's also a dresser.
We usually don't put our clothes in the dresserin a hotel though, we just usually just leave them in our suitcase.
The other thing that I want to show you isthe view.
So if you look behind me here, we are on the10th floor.
So you get a pretty nice view of the cityof Kitchener, Ontario.
So sometimes people book certain hotel roomsjust because of the view.
They're interested in seeing what is outsideof their window.
So here you can see that we have a prettynice view of the city of Kitchener, which is nice and cool.
Again, there is a desk lamp on the desk.
They also have little earplugs in case thetraffic is too loud outside, or maybe your neighbors in the hotel are too loud.
You put these in your ear, so that you don'thear them.
So anyways, there's a nice alarm clock righthere, and there is a phone in case you wanted room service.
Room service is when you order food from thehotel restaurant.
Most hotels have a restaurant in the mainarea downstairs.
But before you think this is a really fancyroom, it's really not.
This is a pretty standard room in Canada.
Most rooms come with two queen sized beds.
And the price of this room, I got a prettygood deal.
It was about $120 Canadian per night.
So I know that might sound like a lot of money, but that is about what a hotel room costs in Canada.
So anyways, welcome to a hotel in Canada.
Let's take a look at the bathroom.
Are you ready to take a look at the bathroom? Or what we call, in Canadian English, thewashroom.
Let's turn the lights on and see.
Here we have a typical hotel bathroom.
Down here you can see that we have some Kleenex.
That's what we call them in Canadian English, to blow your nose.
There are a couple of cups or glasses, andan ice bucket.
There's some shampoo.
A faucet and a sink.
Some toilet paper.
A garbage can that already has garbage init.
That's a little weird.
And here we have some more towels.
Some bath towels and some hand towels.
There is, of course, a toilet if you needto go to the washroom.
And there is a shower, but it's not just ashower, it's also a tub.
So you can either have a shower or take ashower or have a bath or take a bath.
You can say it both ways, by the way.
By the way, if you were ever wondering whatit looks like when I'm making a video, it looks like this.
You can see me in the mirror here.
I just carry my tripod and my camera around, and I stand like this and I talk to the camera, and I think people sometimes look at me strange.
But hey, when you got to make a video, yougot to make a video.
As some of you know, I like to go for a walkevery day.
It's a little echoey in here, isn't it? This hotel has a fitness room.
It has a room with different pieces of equipment.
I'm on the treadmill right now.
And it's nice to be able to talk inside, becauseit's going to be 36 degrees Celsius today.
That's a little hot for walking outside.
It's really nice if your hotel has a pool.
This hotel has a nice pool.
It's a little bit small.
You might notice there's no people in it rightnow.
That's because I waited until a time of daywhen no one was in here.
People don't like it when you videotape bya pool.
You also might notice that I have a tan onmy neck, and I have a suntan or tan on my arm, but not on my shoulders.
In English, we call this a farmers tan becauseI guess farmers always wear t-shirts, and that's why I'm only tan here, and here, andnot here.
I don't often work outside with my shirt off.
So anyways, it's nice when a hotel has anindoor pool.
Sometimes hotels also have outdoor pools.
Obviously an indoor pool is inside.
The pool is too shallow.
It is not deep enough for diving.
So if you're lucky, your hotel will also havebreakfast.
The breakfast at this hotel isn't free, it's$10.
But they have everything that most Canadianswould want.
If you look here, you'll see that they havesome hot water to make tea.
Different kinds of teabags.
And then over here of course, they have coffee, which everyone who loves coffee, appreciates a hot coffee in the morning.
If we walk over this way, you'll see moretraditional breakfast food.
I'll flip around again.
Here you'll see some fruit, bananas, apples, and oranges.
Down here some grapefruit, some strawberries.
In this, you'll see some oatmeal.
Here you see some scrambled eggs and frittata.
In here we have some potato patties, alsocalled hash browns.
Some condiments, so if you like putting hotsauce and other things on your food.
And here we have some ham, and we have somesausage.
If we look over here, we'll see some moretraditional food.
Some cheese, some milk, some juice.
And here we have some different kinds of cereals.
And then here we have some baked goods.
Bagels, muffins, donuts.
And here is a toaster so that you can toastthose things.
I think that's the complete tour of breakfastat a hotel.
If you get hungry and you don't want to getroom service, there's usually a vending machine.
So you can see this vending machine sellsall kinds of snacks.
And then if you don't have money, there'salso a bank machine, or what most of you would call an ATM.
I know in my last video I called it a bankmachine and a few people asked questions about that.
But in Canada, we do call them either bankmachines or ATM, which stands for automatic teller machine.
So, snacks and money.
What else do you need? So I'm all checked out.
And we're ready to head out.
I hope you enjoyed this English video lessonat a hotel.
It was a nice weekend for Jen and I, and Ihope that you were able to learn some English.
