01:15
credit card and then you'll have to pay it back later because i can't say no it's my best friend you're right it's it wasn't a lifetime you know so you should go why can't he just have his wedding here maybe he is his wife from england no he's from england oh his family is there but they can come visit here right well shane i'm sorry to break it to you but i think his family is a little more important than you i'm his best friend do you know how much time we've spent together
01:45
okay exactly just save some money and pay it back okay he said if it's a problem he can pay but i can't accept his money you know it's just very awkward it's very awkward when you get invited to a wedding abroad well it's nice it would be nice when you have money saved so it's a little lesson for you shane save some money okay okay okay can i borrow a little bit
02:16

02:50
hello everybody welcome to abc interactive english i am shane and i'm karen hey karen today we're looking at travel english flying abroad and we're looking at part a is called at a travel agency so we're talking about travel agency do you know what travel agency is well a travel agency is a place where you go to see a travel agent that's right and a travel agent is somebody who's going to help you
03:22
find out how to get a flight to wherever you're going maybe also help you get um transportation that's right a place to sleep accommodations maybe some tours trips stuff like that that's right so if you want to travel abroad usually people will go and you know go to see the travel agent at the travel agency first but a lot of people just do this online now right all right okay people still go to a travel agent yes i think they still do
03:54
some people some people okay so in today's dialogue we got two people talking and one is regina who is going to book a ticket okay and regina is talking to a travel agent who works at a travel agency so regina sounds like that's a female so that will be me i will be regina okay and i will be the person who is helping you the travel agent okay so why don't you begin okay and regina starts by saying hi i'm going to a wedding in vancouver
04:26
two saturdays from now can you help me find cheap tickets there and back oh two saturdays from now okay so today's wednesday we will count the next saturday and then the saturday after that saturday you are right so that's two saturdays from now and she is going to a wedding in vancouver she wants cheap tickets i don't think anybody would say can you help me find some expensive tickets
04:58
you are right wedding we all know it's a ceremony that you usually have when two people get married and you would hear dun dun dun dun dun [Music] that's right and it's such a wonderful thing i love attending weddings so at a wedding people get married right two people promise to be with each other for the rest of their lives through sickness and health right yes richness and import for richer or for poorer
05:32
that's right so it's actually a wonderful thing if your friends are getting married of course you will want to go to their wedding unless it's in another country okay fine if you have money saved you should be okay but if you have to buy an expensive ticket oh and that is our next vocabulary word that's not good and a ticket is something that we usually need to buy when you are maybe taking the plane or maybe taking the train or a bus that's right or it could be for you want
06:04
to go to a music concert you need to have a ticket very good or maybe you want to go see a movie at the movie theater you also need to buy a ticket right interesting so regina wants to find cheap tickets there and back right that's right so the agent says sure when would you like to fly out so fly out fly out of where fly out of your country or fly or something like that right you are
06:43
right so it just means to fly from the place you were going to the other destination that's right and regina continues by saying are there any flights on the friday before the friday before the saturday yes right so the friday before two saturdays from now right okay that sounds a little bit confusing that's right right okay and then and the agent says there are a couple
07:13
when do you plan on returning ah there are a couple couple here means there's a couple of tickets right a couple of flights a couple of yeah or a couple of flights that you can buy a ticket for you're right so a couple here just means like usually means two right mm-hmm but can also mean like a few sometimes when you're not sure exactly how many but you know not too many but you know you have some do you know
07:45
yes then you can say oh yes there are a couple of flights that you can buy tickets for but what if you say they are a couple oh if you say they are a couple usually you mean maybe these people are in a relationship usually on a romantic relationship right so if they are married then you can say they are a married couple so that's like two people right yeah it would be weird to say about you and your best friend i wouldn't say oh yeah they are a couple exactly there are a couple
08:17
of people but they're not a couple because you're right it's a bit romantic it means that maybe you're really in love with that person something like that exactly so i wonder if she'll be able to get the tickets that she is looking for key is they need to be inexpensive or cheap tickets right you are right see i really care about you you do kind of thing i can tell because it's already on my mind well i guess we'll have to find out after the break let's take a break all
08:48
right how much money do i have gosh [Music] the sunday or monday after is fine okay the cheapest round trip ticket leaves on friday at 8 45 a.m and returns on sunday at 9 25 pm that sounds perfect great i'll go ahead and book it for you [Music]
09:27
welcome back everybody we missed you we sure did okay so we are talking about regina and also the travel agent right so regina is looking to buy some tickets to go to vancouver for a wedding vancouver you must be familiar with vancouver not really i'm from toronto you've been to vancouver right i have i have i've never been to vancouver but it's a beautiful place so yeah okay so why don't we start begin or continue with regina okay so regina continues by saying the sunday or monday
10:00
after is fine after the sunday or monday after after what after the day they were talking about the day they were talking about is two saturdays from now that's right so we gotta remember that the after is still referring to that day the two saturdays from now yes and i think regina was trying to find out you know the returning date right so the day they're talking about right now you know the sunday and monday after is talking about when she will return to where she is right now so okay so they'll have the
10:31
wedding so maybe the wedding is on saturday or sunday that's right right maybe on saturday maybe on saturday night so the agent says okay the cheapest round-trip ticket leaves on friday at 8 45 a.m and returns on sunday at 9 25 p.m so that will probably be really good for regina and you know the time is right and also it's the cheapest one yeah i think that was something that was pretty important to
11:02
her and you i think everybody right yeah i guess so when you're buying something of course you want to find the best deal you want to buy the cheapest tickets not necessarily though because some people want a very luxurious thing oh you're right so to them the quality is more important than the cost so if you want a maybe first class ticket true you want to sit in first class you might be more concerned about where where on the plane will i be sitting what kind of service
11:33
will i have and you don't really care that much about the money because you're rich okay guess what i don't want to be rich i guess we're not there yet never will be that's an adjective and basically that means a trip to a place and coming back usually you know over the same route right right so if you're going to fly to vancouver from taipei that means you will fly back from vancouver to taipei that's right and that is a round trip it's not a one-way ticket if you're just buying a one-way
12:03
ticket you're just going to that place and that's it you're not returning right yes so round trip if you're traveling usually when you're traveling to a place you need to buy a round trip so think about it like this round what happens in a circle you go and then you come back so it's like that it's round round exactly okay so regina says that sounds perfect right the time is right and it's the cheapest one of course that sounds perfect great i'll go ahead and book it
12:35
for you book what does that mean like taking a book and just talking to you about the book because book is a noun usually right that's right when you're studying for you're studying english you're probably going to be using a book but book is a verb interesting when you're using book as a verb it means that you're going to make a reservation or you're going for example if i say let's book a table to eat at the restaurant tonight
13:06
if i book it that means that they are going to write it in their book originally and say okay shane karen 7 p.m now it's in the book it's uh-huh and they will keep that table for you they will reserve that table for you yay right interesting so you can use a book as a verb as well meaning to reserve something right yeah i really would like to know because you know in taiwan
13:37
if you go to a wedding it's quite a bit different than if you go to a wedding in canada exactly actually there are quite a few things that are they're very very different like one of the things that i noticed is that you know like the gifts would be different when you end up and you know attend like a western kind of wedding like you know in canada for example and then people usually buy uh gifts yeah and they're usually there's they will register that the married couple is going to register and they'll say what gifts they want exactly and
14:08
then you can look at that list and you can buy one of the gifts exactly so for example if they want an oven or they want a washing machine or some dishes exactly and then you can sign up for that gift and that's and give it to them and that's exactly what they want but whereas in taiwan people usually just give the married couple some money yeah very practical we would think that would be you're not being very thoughtful in a western country we'll think just giving money doesn't seem like you really care or you really know the person very well
14:39
but then when you look at it from another perspective i guess you know if you give them the money they can just go ahead and buy something they really like or they get to save it right well cultures are different but it doesn't mean one is right or wrong exactly oh another difference that i think you know people used to you know the people tend to dress up in the western you know weddings you know we're all like you know even guests yeah right not just a married couple but even the anybody who attend the wedding they're supposed to dress in really formal clothes and
15:09
ensues and beautiful dresses but taiwan you can just wear a t-shirt yes right that's okay yeah you can wear something very very casual interesting okay okay thank you for watching i think we've come to an end okay and we'll see you guys next time [Music] regina is talking to a travel agent hi i'm going to a wedding in vancouver two saturdays from now can you help me
15:44
find cheap tickets there and back sure when would you like to fly out are there any flights on the friday before there are a couple when do you plan on returning the sunday or monday after is fine okay the cheapest round-trip ticket leaves on friday at 8 45 a.m and returns on sunday at 9 25 pm that sounds perfect great
16:14
i'll go ahead and book it for you [Music] i'm going to invite a couple friends over for dinner this is a book taylor's birthday is three fridays from bye-bye see you next time
18:55
[Music] hi i'm sam and i'm nina and today we are playing word drops so in this game we have three words here that we have not looked at yet and we need to try to work these words into our conversation as casually as possible so would you like to go first or do you want me to go first um i'm gonna go first i think it's easier all right go for it all right so you know like with covet and everything
19:31
it's been a while since we've been able to travel and it's been quite frustrating but recently i think things have kind of eased out right so people are starting slowly like flights and everything and the other day i was looking at a round trip to portugal to visit my grandparents yes unfortunately coped has made a lot of plans get kind of pushed back um so there's been a lot of times uh recently where i see my friends who are engaged and they've got you know all these plans and they're like oh can't
20:02
wait for summer 2020 or 2021 and they're so excited but then they realize uh-oh because of kovid i have to push back my wedding oh that's such a shame um speaking of weddings um i actually am supposed to uh go to one i think in a couple of weeks yeah i have a mexican friend that's marrying her el salvadorian fiance
20:32
so um yeah that should be fun i think i'm going to have like a couple of events coming up soon well also on the topic of weddings there's one time that i was on my way to a wedding i was living in seattle and i had to drive back to spokane and so i was driving with my friend uh well i was driving with a couple of friends and actually the driver was not my real friend so but um anyway so we were driving and i realized that the driver is going really really fast and i was like
21:03
okay the speed limit here is like 80 so you know 85 would be okay but he's going like 100 and uh sure enough he got pulled over and got a ticket ah that sucks well it's annoying because my boyfriend has constantly been getting tickets for speeding and it just sucks because all of you know all of his extra money is going to pay bills and now we don't have any money left to book our hotel in in bali
21:36
well you know sometimes when you uh when you are booking flights and things like that and you're going to these different places and you realize that you don't really know what the airport kind of looks like you know what i mean and so then when you're flying there it's like you're flying in and you're like okay on the way in is kind of okay but then you realize i don't know where the departures are so i don't know how to fly out of this airport way to go yeah playing out of the airport
22:08
[Music] see you next time [Music]
