The (somewhat) lost traveler.

June 18, 2009, 12:23 PM posted in General Discussion


I am glad there is a site just for suggestions!

Having just returned from China, one of the problems I had was reading the information signs on buses, trains, and shops.  Also It would be nice to understand the announcements on planes and in airports.  Is there any way of:

1. gathering a vocabulary related to these activities

2. doing a "hungry traveler" type of lesson / video / discussion?

For example, arriving at an airport and checking the boards for arrival and departure times, gate, etc.

sadly, there's nothing in these about having your temperature taken and to stay seated (this means YOU) with the other passengers on the airplane until everyone's had their temperature taken

Hi fred2,

You may want to look through all of the lessons tagged "Travel" and "Transportation", here and here respectively.
