IN THIS LESSON
ID: 2053 Intermediate
Buying tickets in China can be a hurried affair. Train stations can fill up with literally thousands of people all clamoring to get their tickets out of town. And dealing with so many people on a daily basis often makes ticket sellers less than congenial. In this lesson, a mother talks with the ticket seller about buying a ticket for her and her child to take a trip to Nanjing.
