Hello! Hello! Hello Everybody, my name is Steve Ford and welcome to Learning English TV 25 At the Airport Do you need to travel abroad? Have you ever needed to travel abroad? Well then, this lesson is for you! There are a lot of words that we need to know about airports and since English is an international language I am here to help you to make your next trip “a piece of cake”(easy) The easiest way to get to the airport is by taking an airport taxi Other options can be by bus, subway, train or van So for example, when I was living in Paris, I took 1. An airport taxi 2. The subway 3. A van with other people(not so pleasant) so it really depends on your preference When you arrive at the airport, you will be “dropped off” So it’s common for taxi drivers to ask, “where would you like me to drop you off”? That means “where do you want me to stop and leave you?” they will leave you at the departure level of the airport near the check-in desk of your airline Once you’re inside the airport you may have to do a lot of walking since some airports are really big, so people need need a “luggage cart” Checking in, now with internet and mobile phones, check-in for printing out your ticket or making a scannable electronic ticket and printing out your luggage tags, bag tags, baggage checks or luggage tickets(they all mean the same thing) can all be done at electronic kiosk at many airports, but not all Usually airline staff are available to help you if you’ve never used an electronic kiosk before Then you can “get in line”(USA) queue up(UK) to check-in your luggage. So depending on how much time you have, you might “grab a bite to eat” at one of the airport restaurants or cafes or, proceed to the security checkpoint and at the security checkpoint I know it’s very stressfull and it’s very nervewracking so I am going to try to give you some tips to get through the security checkpoint as smoothly as possible Take off your shoes, watch, belt, take out your keys and any coins from your pocket you can take all of those things and an either put them in your carry-on or put them in a bin Well everybody, I hope this lesson was useful for anybody planning to fly There was a ton of new vocabulary here and I will try to post a quiz to help you remember all of it Have a great day and we’ll see you in our next lesson! Bye for now!
