Mind the Gap! Understanding train or airline announcement is an important skill to have and might just be the difference between catching your ride, or spending the night on an uncomfortable bench. These tannoy announcements usually contain quite formal or specialized language that you're unlikely to hear it in day to day speech. Luckily for you, ChinesePod guides you through some common things you're likely to hear so that next time you can pick out some key works and not miss your ride. Photo by Nicolas Alejandro
