Translation for Business

The project will allow the learners to further develop and reinforce the language and structures they have been using throughout the tourism project. As part of their research the learners will visit hotels to gather the information required to be translated. The learners will then work in groups, with each group working on a particular theme. i.e. signs for the hotels or information about checking in and out, using the phone, fire drill explanations etc.
