I forgot to ask you the following question. I included a few other questions. Thank you very much.

1) When giving instructions on what to do before boarding a plane to a person who has never flown, shall I use "you have to", "you + simple present", "you should" or the imperative?
Example: You should look/you have to look/ look at the departues board to check your flight number and the departure time of your flight.
2)We were in half-board: we had breakfast and dinner at the hotel, but we stayed out for lunch. We sometimes were given a packed lunch from the hotel.
3)I stayed in a double room with mini-bar, air conditioning, a shining bathroom and a view of the city. I knew (better: met) a group of American tourists.
4) I made (?) a sightseeing city tour.
5) We visited Mozart's house (not Mozart's home)
The hotel was previously a castle, which was used to protect the people against the attack from the other communes.

    I have never heard the term "half-board" - however, I've heard of "continental plan" and "American plan."<b/>
