IN THIS LESSON
ID: 2577 Upper Intermediate
In this lesson, we hear two girls planning a holiday to Australia and New Zealand. Planning a holiday with someone can be stressful, as the other person can get upset that you're hijacking your holiday and throwing your weight around too much or that you're not giving enough input and leaving all the planning to them. Being equipped with the right vocabulary however, can reduce the chance of this kind of misunderstanding.
