Spelling Tips: the root word is ‘to accommodate’ linked with a place to stay. So, do not forget the word has two cc’s - two cots and two mm’s - two mattresses for people to stay and you need to book a date when to stay.

a + cc + o + mm + o + date

Use the word as many times throughout the week. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
