Base Story #3 Lost (English and Spanish)

Here is a base story in English.  If you use it with a class and would like to send it to me in any language, I will share it with others!!   Below the English version  is an example of how I adapted it for Spanish:

Tom and Tanya are in a cafe in Italy.   They speak a little Italian.   Tom speaks more Italian than Tanya.  They need to go to their hotel.   Tanya says, “Where is the St. Gregory hotel? ”  Tom tells the waiter, in Italian, “We need to find our hotel.”  The waiter speaks to him very quickly in Italian and leaves.  Tom does not understand, but,  Tom says to Tanya, ” Now I know where the hotel is, let’s go!’

Tomás y Talia están en un café en una ciudad en Italia.  Hablan un poco de italiano.  Tomás habla mejor que Talia.  Ellos necesitan regresar a su hotel.  Talia le dice a Tomás, “Dónde está el hotel?’  Tomás le pregunta al camarero, “¿Dónde está el hotel San Gregorio?”  El camarero le habla muy rapidamente en italiano y sale.  Tomás no comprende, pero, le dice a Talia, “Ahora sé donde está el hotel, vamos!”
