Going on holidays to a Spanish-speaking country is a great thing to do! Being able to hear relevant vocabulary is super-important.

Therefore, I made this page and the interactive activities for you to be fully prepared for this element of your Junior Cert studies.

Becoming the Expert

You will become an expert in listening for Spanish vocabulary in the hotel, specifically…

The various documents we need

The types of rooms we reserve

The costs of staying for different nights

The different facilities the hotel has

Listening 1

Good Listening Strategy

1) READ – all questions before listening.

2) BRAINSTORM – relevant vocabulary in questions.

3) LISTEN 1 – jot down potential answers (rough work).

4) LISTEN 2 – Write your actual answers (answer sheet).

5) LISTEN 3 – check, confirm or change answers.

Listening 1 - En el Hotel

Un hombre reserva una habitación en un hotel.

How to Do this Activity


I suggest that you write your answers on a sheet of paper while you listen to the audio.

2) Compare Your Answers Here

However, as you see below, you have the opportunity to then write your answers here and check/compare yours. 

3) Different Answers?

Don’t worry if the system shows your answer(s) as WRONG! This is because there are many ways to write the same thing.

The most important thing is that the key information in your answers matches the information here.

Leaving Cert. 2021- 6 Months (H2)

student testimonial - hannah dancing

“Teacher Dave is great because the classes are tailored to the student and you can concentrate on what you need most. I have learnt so much in a few short weeks. Furthermore, I have gained so much confidence in speaking Spanish that I never had before. This is because we chat in Spanish in an easy and relaxed manner. Dave gives so much time to your improvement and is really invested in your progress”.

MyTeacherDave Student Testimonials - Holly

“I have been attending Dave’s weekly Spanish class since last year and it has no doubt been the best decision. Dave is by far one of the best teachers I’ve ever had he is very thorough with explaining each topic and has brilliant, colourful notes which I find very helpful. Thank you Dave for all the time and effort you have put into all my classes, it has made a huge difference to my school work…”

Davey Student

“Teacher Dave has taught me to have a positive mindset towards Spanish and I have enjoyed every single one of my classes. His patience and support are unmatched and even the toughest parts of the language are broken down with the easy-to-follow lessons. We always crack a few jokes and have fun while learning, which gives the classes their real uniqueness”.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can have a 1-hour Zoom class with me completely free. 

Firstly, we will meet each other!

You can explain what things about English are difficult or complicated for you. I will show you how I can help you to improve.

Most importantly, we will have a REAL class of grammar, vocabulary, listening, or comprehension – whatever you want!


Not at all. 

All materials are provided free of charge. 

The only thing you need is a good internet connection, and a laptop or tablet.

I am a Doctor (PhD) of Linguistics with Spanish and English now, but I actually started Spanish as a hobby 18 years ago with zero idea of the language! I made all the mistakes, worked really hard, became an expert (a Doctor!) and developed the best ways to learn properly and retain what I learned.

As a teacher, I dedicate everything I do to show you how to improve, love the language and know what it’s like to be successful with it.

As one of my past students said:

Dave gives so much time to your improvement and is really invested in your progress”. – Hannah Sharky.


All of my students report an improvement in their very first class.

This is because all materials and activities are designed to make you get better immediately.


This is a complementary English class with absolutely no commitment.

I hope you enjoy the class and learn with me.

However, if you don’t want other classes, that is completely OK!
