Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome back to Business English Pod for today’s lesson on checking in for a flight at the airport.
imageThis lesson is part of our new series of fresh takes on some of our older lessons. We’ve kept the same dialog but have new explanations and practice for our lower level learners.
So, imagine you arrive at the airport on the day of your flight. You walk up to the ticket counter to “check in.” What do you say? Well, you need to start by telling the agent you want to check in and give some information about your flight, such as where you are going. You also need to check your “baggage,” or your bags, and perhaps make a polite request for the kind of seat you want.
In fact, it’s important to be polite throughout this conversation, and it’s this polite language and vocabulary that we’ll learn today. And you may find the expressions we learn quite useful in many different travel situations.
In the dialog you’re going to hear a traveler called Robert. Robert is talking to a ticket agent because he wants to check in for his flight. Listen carefully and you will hear Robert and the ticket agent talk about Robert’s destination, his bags, seat, and ticket.
Listening Questions
1. What is Robert’s final destination?
2. How many suitcases does Robert want to check?
3. After checking his bags, what does Robert ask the ticket agent?
4. Where does Robert want to sit on the airplane?
