FLUENT ENGLISH

Let's enjoy English!

GOING HOME ~

Checking out of the hotel is as simple as checking-in ~ just go to the Reception Desk and say:

“I am checking out.”

They may ask:

“Shall we charge the credit card on-file or would you like to use another card?”

“The original card is fine.”

“Your total charge is $348.75 ~ please sign at the bottom. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again. Do you need a taxi to the airport?”


At the Airport Counter

When you reach the counter, you should give them your ticket and your passport. The first question they usually ask is how many people are traveling with you:



"Is anybody traveling with you today?"

"Is anybody else traveling with you?"

"Are just you two traveling today?"





All airlines have a list of questions they have to ask you at the time of check-in:



"Did you have possession of your luggage since you packed?"

"Did you leave your luggage unattended at all in the airport?"

"Are you carrying any weapons or firearms?"

"Are you carrying any flammable material?"

"Do you have any perishable food items?"
"Did someone you do not know ask you to take something on the plane with you?"



** You can't just say yes or no ~ the correct answer for some of them is 'no' and some of them is 'yes'. IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND, then ask!

 **

"How many bags are you checking in? Do you have a carry on?"


"Can you place your bag up here, please?"


"How many carry on bags are you taking with you?"




Afterwards, they might ask if you prefer an aisle seat or a window seat.



"Do you prefer window or aisle?"



If they are out of aisle seats, they will ask you if window is ok.



"We do not have any aisle seats remaining. Is a window seat okay or would you prefer a middle seat?"



Some people like to be by the emergency exit. You can ask for that seat.



"Do you have a seat next to the emergency exit?" or "Can I have a seat closest to the emergency exit?"



If they don't, they will usually try to give you one that is close.



"All the seats next to the exit have been taken. I have a seat directly in front of it. Would you like that one?"



Finally, they will tell you the gate number and the boarding time.



"Here are your tickets. The gate number is on the bottom of the ticket. They will start boarding 20 minutes before the departure time. You should report to gate C2 by then. C2 is around the corner and down the hall. Thank you and have a nice flight."


Finding the Gate

They will usually tell you what gate you should go to, but if you need to ask again, I will provide an example question. Also, you might need to ask someone where the gate is located on the way to the plane.
 There are different ways of asking how to get there, so choose the one that is easiest for you:


"Can you point me towards gate C2?"

"How do I get to gate C2?"

"Where is gate C2?"



Have a safe flight home ... ;-)
