Section C Understanding and Writing Hotel ADS
Hotel ADS • 英文广告一般有标题(headline)、广告正文(body)、插图(illustration)、广告口号(slogans)等部分组成。广告正文通常分以下三个部分：1) 衔接广告标题和插图的语句，这部分语言富有诗意、夸张；2) 商品的叙述描写，多用一般现在时；3) 厂家或公司申明，欢迎购买某商品，最后是署名和广告口号。而宾馆广告应该提供宾馆的一些特色图片资料以吸引读者，侧重于服务项目和服务特色。大多都提供服务特色、客房种类、价格和联系方式（电话和传真号码、或电子邮件地址等）、宾馆的详细地址等。 • 注意广告语言的特点：语言要尽可能简短、明了、通俗易懂。
