http://www.engvid.com Are you going to travel? Make sure you're prepared with the vocabulary you will need for your business trip or vacation. In this lesson, I'll teach you the English vocabulary you must know for travel -- from preparing your travel itinerary and making reservations, to getting your visas and boarding your flight. It is essential that you know this basic English travel vocabulary, because English is an international language. ESL students who are studying abroad will find these words very helpful. Even if you are not travelling to an English-speaking country, as a tourist, you will need to communicate with people at the airport, and at tourist attractions. Watch this lesson, take the quiz, and have a safe trip!
Hi. Welcome again to www.engvid.com. My name is Adam. Today, I'm talking about a very interesting topic because, for example, in Toronto right now, it's very, very cold. I'm thinking about travelling; I would love to go somewhere hot to get away from this winter. So, when I travel, I have, of course, to make travel arrangements. So here, we have a list of words, a list of things that you must think about before you go on a trip to a different country. We're going to go over each of these.
We're going to start with "booking" and "reservation". Now, many people think that this is more or less the same, which it is. To book something or to reserve something means to keep a place, to keep your place. You book a flight, you book a hotel room. Generally speaking, you make a reservation at a restaurant; you make a booking with a travel agency or with a hotel, with accommodations, any type of accommodation. Speaking of, accommodations are hotel, motel, hostel, B&B, bed and breakfast; all kinds of accommodations. Make sure you have a booking before you go, so your place is safe, it's kept for you. When you arrive, it's all good.
Next, when you're at your destination, the place you're going to, you might want to "rent" a car. Okay? Sorry, this is accommodation. One thing I wanted to also make sure - "accommodations", without the "s", "accommodation" means something different. Okay? "Accommodations" is where you're going to sleep.
And you might want to "rent" a car. You can also "hire" a car. Means the same thing. British people generally use "hire" more, North Americans use "rent" more often.
Next, you have to think about your "baggage". Suitcase, luggage, bags, anything you're carrying with you. You might have "check-in baggage". Sorry, I don't know if you can see this guy. "Check-in baggage" and "carry-on baggage". "Check-in baggage" means you give it to the airline, they put it under the plane, you pick it up at your destination. "Carry-on" means you carry on, so you carry it on your shoulder on to the plane. Okay? In your carry-on, you have to be careful, it has to be small. You can't have liquids because of security and all that stuff. So things that you can't put in your carry-on, you must put in your check-in baggage and give to the airline.
Next, when you get to the airport, assuming you're flying, you will have to do a few things that concern the word "boarding". Before you board your plane, get on your plane - you will get a boarding pass that lets you pass through security and into the airport. On the boarding pass, you will see your "boarding time", this is when you get on the plane and your "boarding gate", the place in the airport where you're going to get on your plane before takeoff. Okay? We can also use this for a train. You board a train, you get a boarding pass with a boarding time, and generally a boarding platform. Okay? So "boarding", getting on your vehicle, whatever vehicle that might be.
You will also generally need to get a "visa" to many countries. Now, a "visa" is something that you use to get into a country, it gives you permission to stay in that country. But be aware: many places, if you're going through another country... So, for example: I'm going to country "C" via country "B". "Via" means by way of or through. So I might need a "transit visa", means I can go there, switch planes and keep going on my journey. But I'm still in another country, I need a transit visa. Excuse me. Also, make sure you're prepared to spend money as soon as you get to your destination.
If you're going to a different country, that country will but using a different "currency", type of money. In Canada, we have Canadian dollar. America has American dollar. Okay? For things like that. In Europe, you need the euro. So make sure you have some of the currency before you go, or purchase it at the airport or at the destination you're going to.
This was great, thanks, I been tryin to find out about "dhs preparedness" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - Konhloe Ranarah Equalizer - (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my co-worker got amazing success with it.
What an excellent teacher you are! Fellow English teacher here, working at a French university teaching undergrads. I watch your videos to see how you approach certain subjects (especially grammatical topics), and have found your insights and methods helpful even when I wouldn't use exactly the same structure. Thanks a lot for being not only a great instructor, but a helpful didactic example as well.
Hello,Adan. I'm from Tibet, I'm a university student. I'm inspired to English by your technique teaching method. This days I'm studying your lesson everyday morning. Your lessons are really really useful and amazing. Thank you very much!
hi professor Adam iam so happy your engvid and also your explanation
thanks alot dear teacher sir Adam
then,I believe you are the best teachers in the world seriously
Big repect always
Hi Adam, I just want to thank you because you're an amazing teacher, seriously. I started watching your videos and from the other teacher from engvid because I was looking for english grammar tips. I'm from Brazil and I'm trying to improve my english, because I'm going to the USA in a few years. I can already have a good conversation with someone in english, actually, even though I'm still in Brazil, I speak english everytime I can, mainly at home, because at school it's a little bit more difficult ya know. But anyway, my accent is also improving a lot, and these tips are being very usefull for me. I just would like someone to tell me if my english is already a good one, just by this comment. Thank you.
man i am a canadian and i am 17 i came from canada to somalia at 10 years old and now i know little bit of english and i am going back and i am very nervous because of bad english and 18 years old i will travel alone back 😨😓😓😓🙁🙁🙁
Hello Adam, I like your english classes very much. Anyway It was not good to listen to you saying that hot countries have (usually) dirty water! Im not fan of this sort of generalization. Be careful. I live in Rio de Janeiro and the water is perfect good. Are u talking about countries which don't have proper sanitation? Some in Africa maybe?
Hello Adam, I really love your videos,They've been extremely helpful for me. But I have a problem, I can clearly understand all you're saying but when I try to speak fluently, I just can't. I make a lot stops and interruptions. Any advice for me Adam?
, you have to speak, and speak a lot. Understanding the language is not enough as listening is passive learning. Speak a lot even if you are not fluent enough or feel confident.
Hope I could help but I'm not a native speaker :)
Dear teacher, Adam.
I am listening to your lesson about travel.
Very important lesson.
By the way, you talked about the verbs book and hire (car, hotel etc).
However, if I need a guide abroad, which is the correct verb to use if I need their services?
Can I say:> hide a guide? or > contract a guide? Or none of them?
Your answer will be of great help for me.
Why you put the subtitules in your videos always???? I don´t like because you are the person I understan better, but whit subtitules I can´t see the video and don´t read it!!!!!! pease chage that!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOURS VIDEOS!!!
Hi Teacher Adam. Thank you so much for sharing very useful English stuffs. You're definitely one of my favorite teachers from Engvid because of your great enthusiast and very easy-to-understand explaination. I know that you're also very interested in writing and you're currently working on your Master's thesis, a project which is to help you with your first novel. Can you please make more videos about writing skills to help us to produce a good writing in IELTS test? I've watched all of your videos about writing skill, and I must say that they're extremely useful.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from you soon on youtube. Thank you.

Welcome to Free Dating America - Online Dating That Works!
Since the rise of online dating over the past decade, many dating websites have come and gone. A common complaint shared by seasoned online daters who have tried various dating sites is that, rarely do the multitude of matchmaking services live up to their claims.
For a monthly fee, dating sites claim theyll do the math for you and spit out your soul mate in return. Some websites gather data about you and crunch the numbers with all kinds of mathematical formulas and algorithms in order to fill up your inbox with compatible matches.
A recent report issued by the New York Times weighs in explaining why numbers and formulas are unlikely to help forge the perfect couple.
Hang on a minute, wasnt online dating designed to reduce the complexities of finding a partner in the first place? Technology and competition for this lucrative market has made a mockery of it. To the average person, thanks to bad press and other contributing factors, online dating has become somewhat of an un-trusted source for meeting people.
