Are you ready to take a trip? We’re going to start a series of lessons on practical English for use while traveling. Today we’re going to go through the airport step by step, learning important vocabulary and useful phrases along the way.
Conversation #1 – At the Check-In Desk
|TIẾNG ANH||TIẾNG VIỆT|
|Dan is flying from New York to Los Angeles. When he arrives at the airport, he goes to the check-in desk. Listen to the conversation he has with the agent:
Agent: Good afternoon! Where are you flying to today?
Dan: Los Angeles.
Agent: May I have your passport, please?
Dan: Here you go.
Agent: Are you checking any bags?
Dan: Just this one.
Agent: OK, please place your bag on the scale.
Dan: I have a stopover in Chicago – do I need to pick up my luggage there?
Agent: No, it’ll go straight through to Los Angeles. Here are your boarding passes – your flight leaves from gate 15A and it’ll begin boarding at 3:20. Your seat number is 26E.

Conversation Vocabulary and Phrases
Other Questions & Phrases for the Airport
If your bag is heavier than the weight limits, or if your bag is larger than the size limits, you may need to pay extra: an oversized baggage fee or overweight baggage fee (this can be $75 to $300). Some airlines in the United States also charge a fee for ALL checked bags (usually $15 to $30).
Say this if you have fragile or sensitive items in your bag that might break
The agent will respond either “Yes” if the flight is on time, or “There’s a 20- minute delay” (for example) if the flight will leave later than expected.
Extra questions in the U.S.
On flights going to or inside the U.S., you might be asked some extra security
questions before or during check-in. Here are some sample questions:
Answer YES to these questions:
(Liquids must be 100 mL or less, and stored in a single quart-sized clear plastic bag. More information: TSA.gov)
Answer NO to these questions:
Conversation #2 – Going through Security
There are two pieces of equipment in security: you put your bags through the X-ray machine, and you walk through the metal detector. Some airports also use a body
scanner for a more careful check.
The X-ray machine has a conveyor belt that moves your bags automatically through the machine. You can put small items like keys or money into plastic bins.
In the picture below, the woman is walking through the metal detector.
Her suitcase is on the conveyor belt after going through the X-ray machine.
|TIẾNG ANH||TIẾNG VIỆT|
Agent: Please lay your bags flat on the conveyor belt, and use the bins for small objects.
(he goes through the metal detector again)
Đại lý: Vui lòng đặt túi của bạn nằm phẳng trên băng chuyền và sử dụng các thùng cho các đồ vật nhỏ.
(anh ấy lại đi qua máy dò kim loại)
The phrase “you’re all set” is a common expression that means “you’re finished and everything is OK.”
Phrasal Verbs: SET OFF and GO OFF
When the alarm sounds, we say “the alarm went off.” To describe what caused the alarm to sound, we say “set off” – for example, “My keys set off the alarm” or “My keys set off the metal detector.”
Announcements at the Gate
Airports are divided into terminals (the major sections of the airport) and each terminal has many gates. The gate is the door you go through to enter the airplane.
Here are a few announcements you might hear while you are at the gate, waiting for the plane to board.
(this means the flight will leave from a different gate)
(this means it’s time for passengers to enter the plane)
(this means everyone can enter the plane)
(this means it is the FINAL OPPORTUNITY to enter the plane before they close the doors)
Conversation #3: On the plane
|TIẾNG ANH||TIẾNG VIỆT|
The people who work inside the airplane serving food and drinks are called flight attendants. Both men and women who have this job are called flight attendants. Listen to this conversation that Dan has with the flight attendant when dinner is served on the flight.
Những người làm công việc phục vụ đồ ăn, thức uống bên trong máy bay được gọi là tiếp viên hàng không. Cả nam và nữ làm công việc này đều được gọi là tiếp viên hàng không. Hãy nghe đoạn hội thoại này của Dan với tiếp viên hàng không khi bữa tối được phục vụ trên chuyến bay.
Đan: Cảm ơn.
If you didn’t understand what the flight attendant said, you can say Sorry? or Pardon? to ask him or her to repeat it.
If you want to ask for something, you can use the phrase “Can I have...?” or “Could I have...?” Practice your pronunciation with these common requests:
Finally, if you need to stand up, but there is a person sitting between you and the aisle, you can say Excuse me and make a motion to start standing up. The person sitting next to you will understand and stand up to let you get out of your seat.
