Spanish surviving sentences in a restaurant or a hotel (Answers) Posted by on Feb 7, 2013 in Spanish Vocabulary

Last week we were talking about “surviving sentences in a bar or restaurant”. If you remember, I gave you some questions which some of you have answered quite well. Thanks so much Estrellita, Patricia Salerno, John and Marlene for your contributions.

I’m giving you my version now, with a couple of quite interesting and funny videos to practice these expressions.

  9. ¿Tienen bocadillos de tortilla española? Do you have Spanish omelette sandwiches?
  10. Camarero, ¡se ha olvidado mi tapa! Waiter, you forgot my tapa!

In a hotel:

  1. ¿Me puede dar la llave de la habitación por favor?  Can you give me the key to my room, please?
