Language Focus
Infinitive (to) or gerund (- ;ng)?
look at these examples:
I wish to claim compensation. (NOT * 1wish claiming compensation.) I suggest writing to the manager. (NOT ' I suggest to write to the manager.)

Put the following verbs into two groups: those that are followed by an infinitive and those followed by the gerund. admit

involve offer refuse

afford claim deny justify plan risk

an ticipate consider

manage postpone

arrange decid e fai l

avoid delay hope

promise suggest

recomm end undertake


2 Some verbs can take both the infinitive and the gerund but with a change of meaning.
Can you explain how the meaning of the verb changes in each of these pairs?

a They stopped to take extra passengers on board . b They stopped taking extra passengers on board.

2 a You must remember to write to them.
b You must remember writing to them.

3 a I'll try to phone her w hen the meeting finishes. b I'll try phoning her whe n the meeti ng finishes.

4 a If you wan t any compen sation it will mean taking them to co urt. b Sorry, I didn't mean to take yo ur seat.

5 a He went on complaining about his holiday for at least half an hour.
b After describing the terrible journey he went on to complain about the state of the accommodati on.

Rewrite the following sentences without changing their meaning. Use a second verb in the infinitive or the gerund each time. For example: She hasn' t got enough money to travel fi rst class. She can't afford to travel first class.

If you don't pay the invoice soon there may be a 10 per cent penalty charge. If you delay paying the invoice there may be a 10 per cent penalty charge.

a I think it would be a good idea to write to the tou r operator.
I suggest .
b Wou ld it be inconvenient for you to wait a little longer? Would you mind ... c OK, yes, I made a mistake about the time but not th e date. I admit . d I'll do my best to have an answer within a week. I promise ... e If I we re you, I would make a strongly-wo rd ed complaint. I recommend.

Handling a complaint
8 In the Listening section on page 63 you heard how an airline treated a customer who had a complaint. Think about

When it pays to complain
A dissatisfied customer who co mplains is just as likely to remain loyal as a com pl ete ly sa tisfied custo me r. This surprising sta te of affairs h as been observed by Bri tish Airways, which has rurncd the handling of compla ints into somethi ng of a science. C harl es We iser, BA's head of c ustom er re lat ions, calcu lates that about 13 per cent of cusromers who are complerely satisfied wi th BA's service may not Ay with the airline agai n. "Perhaps they changed jobs, found a frequent flyer programme which better suited their needs, or maybe they felt it was time for a change of airline," he says, writing in the July issue of COllSumer Policy Relliew, the journ al published by the UK's Consumers' Associarion. Half of all cus tomers who expe rience prob lems but do no t complain, do nor intend to use the airline agai n. This contras ts with the customers who are dissatisfied bur do complain - just 13 per cent of this gro up will defect, the ident ical rate of defectio n as the "satisfied " group, says Weiser. C learly, ir pays ro encourage cusromers to complain, and to encourage complaints departments to turn themselves from "blame" to "customer retention" departmentS, he says. \'{Ieiser's guide [Q sat isfy in g compla in ts includes the fo llowi ng points: • Apologise and "own" the problem. Customers do not care whose fault it was - they wan t someo ne to say sorry and champion their cause. • Do it quickly - customer sat isfaction with the handling of a co mplaint dips after five days. • Assure customers the problem is being fi xed. Co mplaints depart ments need to know th ei r compa ny inside out and work with front-li ne departments. • Do it by phone. Many departments are frightened of the emotion customers often show when things go wro ng, but customers appreciate a personal apology and reassurance th e problem will be solved.

situations when you have complained and answer these
questions. a How did the person you spoke to react to you r comme nts? b W hat actio n was take n to solve you r problem? c How satisfied were you with the result?

9 Read the article on the right and decide if these statements are true or false. Correct any false statements.
a A di ssatisfied customer w ho makes a com pl ai nt w ill usually fly again with British Airways.

b About one sixth of SA's satisfied customers defect to other

c Both sat,isfied and dissatisfied customers w ill fly w ith SA again in about the same proportions. d SA gives money to customers jf they complain.

e Customers are anxio us to find ou t who was responsible for th ings going wrong. It is not a good idea to adm it to being in the w rong.

Docklands turns its attention to tourism growth
the mi gh ty Canary Wharf Towe r. is the new fa ce of touri st London. Th e London Docklands Devel opment Corporation, through which the Government's g rant fundin g for the area is channelled, is "ex tremely supporti ve of the London To uris t Board initiati ve" according to Sunny Cr0l1ch. it s dire ctor of marketing and public affairs. " London is th e premier gateway for visi to rs to thi s country - a nd we mu st mak e sure we do not lose that p()sition," she says . "Dock lands are not top of the attractions visitors want to sec. althou gh Engli sh Touri st Board surveys show LI S 10 be about number six o n the li st o f prioriti es. a pl ace visi tors go to on th e ir second or third trip. What we have to offer is a new fa ce.



Our co mmuni cations links with the rest o f London are also good. We have the D oek lands Li ght Rail",:ay, buses ~nd , by nex t May, we will have completed our road programme when the Limehouse link is o pen ed . And the DLR. which now operates between Mondays and Frid ays, w ill open at weekends from next summer:'

Airport success
And, of course, there is London City A irport, which now has connections with seven major European cities, Its popularity is rapidly improving - but we Briti sh see m slow to rea li se its adv,mtages, as some 80 per cent of its passengers arc inbound. Prev ious criti cis ms that there are few shops, restaurants, pubs, wine bars and so on in the area are no longer valid , add s Sunny Crouch. "Terence Conran now has three restaurants on the south side and in the ne wer area there are at least twe ntyone shops, plus half a dozen pubs, restaurants and other places to eat and drink," she says. Furthermore. there are now more than 1,000 hote l beds in D oc kl a nds , including th e n ew Scan dic Crown a nd Internation a l Britannia hote ls. " Dock land s attracts over 500,000 visitors a year," say.s Sunny, "antl, in tourism terms, we have an important cluster of attractions . We are finding that visitors pick up the Docklands Light Rail way at Tower Bridge. take it ri ght through Dockland s to Island Gardens. then w alk through the foot tunnel to Greenwich and take the boat back. That way, they get the best possible view of what we have," The Docklands development story is far from over. "We ha ve plenty of land in the Roya l Do cks area and we are looking for touri smlIeisure type developments for this because we feel that in the present climate we don' t need any more office schemes," says S unny . " F o r exampl e. there is the London Dome project, to create a magniticent covered bowl for sporting eve nts, conferences, concerts and so on." Finance, it seem s. is almost in pl ace for this ambitiou s project - with the backers undeterre d b y the failur e of Olympia & York . developers of Canary Wharf, where, until it was temporarily closed follow in g an attempt to plant a bomb there, the tower (the tallest office building in Europe) was attracting 5,000-6.000 visitors every weekend, eager to see the unique panorama of London from its top fl oor.

" It is fascinating to show groups of overseas visitors, who have come to London w ith im ages of anc ie nt heritage and twditioll, somethin g: that is new an d modern. Canary Wharf, for example, i s prohably the wo rld 's lar ges t urban development project. "Docklands is an area that is dynamic . changing, as it ha s been over the centuries - and there is plenty for visitors to see. There is Tower Bridge , of course, with its walkways, and the new Desig n Museum on the south side of the river. On the north side, there is the Tower itself and St Katherine's dock.

000 lire. well. There's one here in English w hich is very useful. Hopefully..it's best to stick to the vaporetti. Tourist: O K. the kind of modernist viewpoint is very much with the archaeologists . smaller guided tours can go there. should have private bathroom and shower. The average visitor is unable to make a choice. The same goes for the bar and lounge area. But the best thing is probably for you to take one of these guidebooks so you can plan your own sightseeing depending on the kind of thing you're interested in. Touri st: Uhuh . Speaker 2: OK.this is on the North Quay of the West India Dock and we' ll be visiting it this afternoon.possibly wi th some kind of security system . What would be the mix of guests? Speaker 1: George. that's your speciality. It's an extremely popular place to stay. And w hat about places to eat? Can you recommend an especiall y good restaurant? Inform ation officer: Yes. as you will see in section 2 of the report we feel that you should aim for a 300 bedroom hotel in the three-star category so the guest rooms would obviously reflect that standard so . as we said before. So the quick visi tor sees just a few selected examples of the great civilisations of antiquity and not the proper museum where the individual visitor is not disturbed by these visitors. some temple statues. And this is Egypt for the quick visitor.er. Expert: Yes. not on ly to g UESts but to office workers and local residents. we'll try there. w hich is absolutely amazing. e Things To Do L i stening 10 Tourist: Hello . section 2. If you're interested in art it's especially convenient because it's just next door to the Palazzo Fortun i museum and a couple of minutes from the Accademia museum. other things we deal wi th are. And we'll display selected representati ve exhibits from the different museums starting with. war and left as a monumental ruin. concerts. Information officer: You're very welcome. w hich will be a major venue for sports events. Speaker 3: W hat about the location of the restaurant? Speaker 1: well. colour TV. well.a temple gate. um .4 d eals with the health and fi tness d ub and possibly a swimming pool. in the rest of the museum the atmosphere is qUieter and we can cater for smaller groups. It's funn y that the avant-garde.. because there's bound to be some noise from road traffiC. there's the Ponte Vecchio w hich is highly recommended.residents. it would seem that. So this is described in section 1.. I think if architects had 'always concentrated on reconstructing the past we would still be building pyramids. And we think that . Tourist: Well.. in-house video films.and the Ponte di Rialto. the Doge's Palace. is here on the Calle del Forno. W here is it? Information officer. Interviewer: Right. 4 Interviewer: And what will it look like when it's finished? Expert: W hen M useum Island is complete we plan to display only a very limited nu mber of exhibits and to keep on changing w hat there is to see so as to give frequent visi tors. Then the tour goes on with the Ishtar gate from Babylon as a representative example of the ancient Near East. or give tour groups continental breakfast as room service. which is actually very important because if you have club membership it could well be of considerable appeal. that sounds quite good.but they're pretty reasonable.ause they're horrendously expensive . Tourist: Right. of cou rre. we have to make the best of it. for instance.and also space for half a dozen coaches for the tour group business.. Speaker 2: Why so small? Speaker 1: Because most of the office sites have planned their own in -house conference and meeting facilities and. the conference room w hich should be really for quite small events. to distinguish between what is important and not so important. Art historians don·t think of it as the best piece of architecture in Berlin. it depends on the number of days . if you look at the map. Speaker 3: Fine.. surroun ded by monumental pieces of architecture . Intervi ewer: And w hat do you think? Expert: Personally. Or you could go to AI Mascaron on Calle lunga Santa Maria Formosa. Tourist: How much is it? Inform ation officer: I'm sorry. from our contacts with both tour operators and business houses. I would much prefer a dialogue between wes tern art of the late twentieth century AD and Egyptian art o f the twentieth century BC . given that Docklands is a secondary location. the rooms should be sound-proofed. . wel l if you're looking for relatively cheap accommodation you could try the Locanda Silva w hich.the Bridge of Sighs . and finally the facade of the castle of Mshatta as an example of Islamic architecture. We cannot change tourism for the masses. Speaker 2: Have you been able to identify a suitable sil e? Speaker 1: Yes. It's a kind of bed and breakfast and costs 60. say a maximum of ninety to 100 people. Information officer: OK. an obelisk. And there's the Ponte dei Sospiri .art historians tend to defend the reconstruction of the destroyed architectural heritage. ancient Egypt and the most famous piece in our museum. and we'll try to install on the island an intensive tour for these tourist groups with very limited time available for the museum visit. we've just arrived and we're planning on staying three or four days. so if you want a better class of hotel then you might like to look at the San Giorgio w hich costs 110. Speaker 4: Yes. and we were wondering if you could give us some advice about where we can stay and some of the things we should do while we're here .. the Neues M useum was built in 1850 and was a very odd mixture of architectural styles. Interviewer: So how can you help visitors to choose w hat they should see first and wha t they can leave until later on? Expert: For the six archaeological museums we'll try to separate the quick visitor groups. a permanent impetus to come back again and again. we'll also see the completion of the London Dome Project. conferences and so on.it's absolutely out-of-this· world. we surveyed other hotels in the region and found that there's an average mix of 58 per cent tourist demand and 42 per cent bUSi ness. Tourist: OK. so that perhaps brings us to the anticipated demand for the hotel. and do all the rooms have a bathroom? Information officer: Um . Then. the water buses.thank you very much for your help. you can't miss the Piazza San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale . So you would be well advised to use the con ference and banqueting facilities as an additional breakfast room. the bust of Nefertiti. 2. Could you tell us a bit about the water taxis? Information officer: If I were you I'd forget about the speedboat taxis bec.particularly well served by l ondon City Airport to which about 80 per cent of passengers are inbound. and especially the ci tizens of Berlin. It would be a shame if they didn't. What about things to do? Inform ation offi cer: Well . That's here on the Pescheria di Rialt o... those coming to the museum for half an hour/forty minutes maximum.000 lire a night. is it? Speaker 1: Yes. it would be more price sensitive than the West End and could therefore attract tour groups for whom the centre of London is too expensive.it's much more constructive and creative and interes ting. then we come to the market gate of Miletus from Asia Minor and the famous Pergamon altar. and well. such as the louvre for example. but there are wide variations as there are some that have a 75/25 business I tourist split and others with a 20/SO split. I don't like museums w here you show thousands and thousands of objects. it should reall y look out onto the ri ver to maximise its appeal for both residents and non. But.3. I can't tell you offhand. We're trying to renova te and preserve all that has been left standing of the original building but there are two choices: either we choose a modern contemporary architectural style in harmony wi th the still preserved parts of the ruin. do you speak English? Inform ation officer: Yes. we have to accept it. no. But aesthetically it's a problem. or in the new installations in the British Museum you have to walk enormous ~ Marketing the Past Li stening 1 J Interviewer: Could you tell us a little bit about the reconstruction of the museum here? Expert: Yes. As far as the restaurant is concerned you'd probably need about 150 covers and even that number may be too small at peak tim es. This could generate quite a substantial additional revenue for the hotel. If you get a tourist pass you can use them as often as you like. Tourist: Right. we've made enquiries with a number of agents and we've earmarked a sit e in the Port East development . it was bombed in the second worfd 122 . there w ill be conference centres in the area. how can J help you? Tourist Well. And communications with the rest o f London are good w ith the Docklands Ught Rail way and the Th<1mes River Bus. Um . and I think this is how we can deal w ith mass tourism. but it is an interesting earl y example of an ironwork construction. And another thing we feel is important is the provision o f a car park for about 100 cars . Try the spaghetti with lobster . Tha t one's here on the Calle della M andala. direct dial telephone and so on. or we reconstruct it as it used to be. so the rest of the museum is relatively empty. Personally I deplore that in huge museum designs.

I think we should give people what they have "eaHy come to see and then. Interviewer: What else can you do to attract potential clients? Agnes Johnson: Well . As you look at this section of the frieze you'll see -.....it's a quite honestly tedious process of t elesales. It's ~ to have been built soon after 180 8e by .-ere in fact a thunderou s proclamation of the s. ::-e giants..useum's greatest treasures.

There's information about the hotel and a picture so they can go through and fi nd you and give you a call.

A similar struggle is shown in the frieze . just a few steps away there is ~er great monument from the ancient world ::-E. W hen you reach the . We also advertise in a lo t of smaller ~gamon. and there's a lot of companies out there w ho have requirements for meetings. I mean in the Louvre you have to walk . then they'll come out and visit each hotel. the way that we sell this venue here at The Manor is we contact conference agents. something that's going to attract people to use us..

We can't just h ave sales people out and about because they can't cover the huge mass that ad vertising through the printed word can cover. on the whole...:: completely around the altar beginning and encing at these steps. so it's not the kind of thing that happens overnight. well not a complicated .. and what we need to do is to fin d out w ho they are and if they would use us. so 8 per cent of the charge goes to them for finding the conference.. some of whom had migrated not long before 07.
