Amanda: Right, OK, and what’s your address?
Leo: It’s number 37 Blumengasse in Vienna

Leo: Sure, it's B-L-U-M-E-N-G-A-double S-E.
Amanda: Great, thanks, and what’s the weather like in Vienna at the moment?
Leo: It’s pretty grey and rainy, I’m afraid Hope it’s better in Dubai.
Amanda: Yes, it’s lovely at the moment Sunny and warm, but not too hot. Now, can you give me your phone number9
Leo: Yes, it's 4312 11057.
Amanda: Great So, you’re looking for a holiday apartment, Leo How many people is it for, just yourself9
Leo: No. there'll be four of us, two adults and two children
Amanda: Fine, and when would you like it from?
Leo: Ideally from the 1st of January
Amanda: January the 1st. OK, I’ll have a look and see what we’ve got. How long would you like to stay?
Leo: Well, it depends a little bit on the price, but I think that about nine days would be perfect.
Amanda: Fine And, talking of prices, what would be your maximum, do you think?
Leo: Well, I’ve looked on the Internet, but I don’t know if I’m being realistic if I say 200 euros per day Things seem to range from 150 to well over 400
Amanda: Well, it depends on where, of course, but I think we could probably find something for you at that price
Leo: Great. There are various other things, though. Our children are quite small, and we don’t want to take them to restaurants all the time, so one thing we’d really appreciate is a fully equipped kitchen so we can do some cooking.
Amanda: Yes, I completely understand. Do you have any other special requirements?
Leo: Yes, we live in the city centre hundreds of miles from the sea, so we’d really like be able to see it from our apartment.
Amanda: OK. I'll note that down All our apartments come with air conditioning and central heating, by the way.
Leo: Oh dear. One thing I don’t like is the noise of air conditioning in the background. Can you make sure it’s as quiet as possible?
Amanda: Yes, I’ll look into that Anything else?
Leo: Yes, just one more thing We’d like to hire a car while we’re in Dubai, so we’ll need to have a parking space, I think - we don’t want to have to walk a long way from the car to the apartment.
Amanda: I think you’re quite right I’ll look into all these things and make a list of possible apartments. Do you have an email address? So I can send them to you.
