Air travel in Chinese

On a Plane

Imagine you are on a flight from America to China. It’s a long way, so make sure you know how to ask for a drink or an extra blanket in case you are cold. It’s also important to know what “我需要 wǒ xūyào” means. Repeat the new words aloud to practice your pronunciation.

Once you arrive at the airport you will have to collect your luggage. Simply follow the signs to the “行李认领 xínglǐ rènlǐng” and make your way to the “护照检查 hùzhào jiǎnchá”. Listen to the Audio below to hear the pronunciation…

Hopefully you won’t need to use the following phrases, but it’s still useful to know them...

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed the lesson.
