Hello. Excuse me but do you know the time?
Oh, yes I do.
Thank you, sir.
The time is three in the afternoon.
So right now it’s 3:00 PM
Yes, that’s another way to tell time.
Oh, how does your watch tell time?
It’s an analog watch, which is like a clock with the long hand and small hand.
Yes, these watches are more traditional than digital ones.
don’t digital watches tell time by numbers instead of analog’s way?
Yes, but I prefer an analog watch over a digital watch.
How much time has past since we started talking?
It’s been only 10 minutes.
So right now it should be 3:10 PM.
You are correct.
It’s almost time for work for me.
When will you have to work?
Oh, I will have to work in 30 minutes.
You still have some time to get ready.
I also have to wait for the bus, which will arrive at 3:25 PM.
My bus will arrive at 3:20 PM.
What time is it right now?
The time is 3:15 PM. So I’ll have to be at the bus stop in 5 minutes. Bye.
Okay, good bye.
Good Evening. How may I help you?
Hi, I’d like to make a reservation.
Alright. Is it just for you?
No; I need a room for 4.
Would two beds be okay?
Yes, that would be great.
How long will you be staying with us?
We’ll be staying for 3 nights, starting one week from today.
Alright, we have a room available that features two queen-sized beds and a kitchenette.
How much will it cost?
$200 per night.
Wow, that’s expensive! Do you have any rooms that cost less?
Well, we have another room with no kitchenette.
How much would that one cost?
$130 per night.
That’s a bit better. What is check-in time?
You may check in any time after 3 PM, and you must check out by 11 AM.
That sounds great! I’ll take it.
Wonderful. I hope you enjoy your stay!
