Jackie: Hello, welcome to bbclearningenglish.com with me, Jackie Dalton. In a previous How to, we looked at how to tell someone you’re not happy about something and ask them to change their behaviour in a polite way,with phrases like ‘Would you mind…?’
Neil, I hope you don’t mind me mentioning this…but, would you mind keeping the toilet seat down after you’ve used the toilet?

William: Hello, and welcome to How to… The BBC Learning English phrase book for everyday situations…
William: My name’s William Kremer. Now, it’s often said that we English people hate making complaints – but, just for you, I’m going to make a programme about making complaints. This edition of How To will look in detail at the language of spoken complaints. Earlier on, I spoke to my colleague Catherine, who told me about a time she’d made a complaint a couple of years ago. The incident happened at her brother’s wedding, which was being held in a hotel. Now, Catherine arrived at the hotel one hour before the wedding but to her surprise, the hotel told her that she had to pay ￡10 extra for checking in early. What did Catherine say?

Jackie: Hello, welcome to How to… with bbclearningenglish.com. I’m Jackie Dalton. In this programme we’ll look at how to express anger and annoyance about something.

Amber: Hello, I’m Amber with another edition of ‘How to …’ the series that gives you useful language to do things in English.
In an earlier programme we looked at simple ways to apologise – to say sorry when you’ve done something wrong. In this programme, we look at how to reply when someone says sorry to you for something they’ve done wrong. Now the good news is there are lots of short and friendly expressions that you can use to accept an apology. For example, if you’re with someone who’s really sorry for what they’ve done, you can just say: That’s OK.
