In the 1980s, a TV show called Fawlty Towers became very popular in the UK and is considered a classic nowadays.

It is set in a hotel in England, with an ‘unorthodox’, slightly racist manager (played by John Cleese), and a staff of funny personnel including a Spanish waiter (played by British actor Andrew Sachs). Manuel is learning English and this leads to confusion and hilarious situations. This is a short extract from one of the most famous episodes.

I hope you enjoy it.
