I learned that maybe some of the curriculums in some universities are a bit outdated and some teachers lack of international experience. That's what a friend told me from her tourism class:
Teacher: There is a guy coming in to a five star hotel in europe, appereantly dressed in jeans, sandals, cheap t-shirt and asking for a room. What would you do?
Student: I would welcome him and look if there are rooms available.
Teacher: Wrong. He is not dressed properly, so just ignore him and call security to take him out.
Thats how the story was told, but not exactly word by word.
One more conversation:
A guest wants to check in, but dont have a ID or passport. What can he do?
Answer Student: Maybe giving some money under the table?
Actually ist seems student don't really know that money does not solve problems like that in countries in Europe, Australia or the US.
