Unit 5 -Task 2
Travel agent: Hello, is that Helga Langendorf?
你好，请问是 Helga Langendorf吗？
Helga Langendorf: Yes, speaking.
Travel agent: This is Mark from Central Travel. You asked me to find out some information for you about flights.
Helga Langendorf: Oh, yes, thank you. Have you got it?
Travel agent: Well, I think I've got what you wanted.
Helga Langendorf: Hold on, I just need to find my diary and a piece of paper....yes, I'm ready now.
Travel agent: So, you'll be in Hong Kong for a week, and then you want to go to Tokyo for a week?
Helga Langendorf: Yes, that's right.
Travel agent: Well, there are several flights to choose from, but the best ones for you seem to be with Japan Airlines and Singapore Airlines.
Helga Langendorf: Is there much difference in the fares?
Travel agent: No, there's not much to choose from on price. But the times are different of course.
Helga Langendorf: Yes, that's what I'm more concerned about. I can't leave the conference until after lunch on the 14th of June.
Travel agent: Well, Singapore Airlines have a flight to Tokyo at 14.30. Would you be able to make that?
Helga Langendorf: I doubt it. When's the next one?
Travel agent: Japan Airlines have a flight at 16.00. Would that be better?
Helga Langendorf: Oh yes, I'm sure I could make it to the airport in time to catch that one. Could you book it for me?
Travel agent: Yes, of course, but when do you want to go back to Hong Kong?
Helga Langendorf: Could you book me on a flight on the 21st of June, please? I'm not so-bothered what time it is that day. Just book me on whatever's available. Can you make the bookings now?
Travel agent: Yes, I'll do it now. I've already got all your details, so I'll send you an email as confirmation and we'll send out the tickets in due course.
Helga Langendorf: Fine. Thanks very much. Bye.
