Francisco lives in Madrid and he sells Spanish wines to clients in the rest of Europe. One of his best clients is Anne Smith. She lives in London and she runs a wine distributor in the United Kingdom. Anne is planning a business trip to Madrid to meet with Francisco and visit a couple wineries to try out some new wines.


Here is their telephone conversation regarding Anne’s trip:

Francisco:

 Hi, Anne. How are you?

Anne:

 Very well, Francisco. How are you doing?

Francisco:

 Fine, thanks. So, for what day have you booked your flight?

Anne:

 My flight leaves London on the 14th of November at 9:00 a.m. I arrive in Madrid at noon. Shall I take a taxi to your office?

Francisco:

 Yes, that sounds great. I would offer to pick you up, but I have another meeting that morning.

Anne:

 Oh that’s no problem. I don’t mind taking a taxi.

Francisco:

 Where are you staying?

Anne:

 I’ve booked a room at the Sol Plaza Hotel.

Francisco:

 Fantastic, that’s a nice hotel and it’s close to my office. There is a winery I would like to take you to on the 15th. There are a few very nice red wines I’d like you to try there.

Anne:

 That sounds great. What is the name of the winery?

Francisco:

 Viñas de la Sierra.

Anne:

 Oh, yes. I think you have mentioned it to me before.

Francisco:

 Then on the morning of the 16th, I have an appointment with the Enologist at Bodegas Summon. I’d like you to come to that meeting too. What time do you fly out on the 16th?

Anne:

 My flight back to London is at 3:00 p.m.

Francisco:

 Okay, great. The meeting is at 10:00 a.m. so that should work out well.

Anne:

 Yes, that sounds great.
Sí, me parece bien.

Francisco:

 So, why don’t you write me an e-mail or a text message when you have landed in Madrid?

Anne:

 Yes, okay, I’ll do that.

Francisco:

 Have a good trip over.

Anne:

 Thank you. See you in about two weeks time.

Francisco:

 Bye-bye.
