Buses Sometimes buses are punctual (= arrive at the correct time), but not always. Where I live, buses should run (= travel/operate) every ten minutes, but sometimes I wait at the bus stop for half an hour in a queue (= line of people), and then three buses come together, and they're all full up. (= full of people) Other times the bus is early and I miss it. (= I don't catch it) Taxis Taxis show what you have to pay on the meter. When you want the driver to stop, you can say this: Could you drop me here? (= Could you stop here?) People often give taxi drivers a tip (= extra money as well as the fare). For example, if the fare is $8.40, you can give the driver $9. 14

16 Unit 2 Travel Words at sea At sea a bedroom is a cabin, a bed is a bunk, the kitchen on a ship is a galley, right is starboard and left is port and the group of people who work on the ship is called the crew. These terms are also used for an aircraft. Sailors also refer to their vessels as «she» rather than «it». Journey, trip, travel, voyage The act of travelling can be described by a number of synonyms which differ by various implications. They all describe the act of going from one place to another (that is why they are synonyms), but differ by the length of time taken by that act, by its purpose, destination or by the method of travelling. Travel is a general word (the act of travelling, a long one in distant or foreign places, either for the purpose of discovering something new or in search of pleasure and adventure. E.g.: He is writing a book about his travels in Africa.). It is a noun and a verb: Travel broadens the mind. How did you travel round Australia? NOTE: We never say «a travel». It is an uncountable noun. Journey is the act of going from one place to another, usually taking a rather long time; е.g. It's a three days' journey by train. You'll have to make the journey alone. Going on a journey is always exciting. What was the journey like? We had a long journey by coach from the north to the south of the country. Voyage means a long journey usually by water or air, though this use is quite formal. E.g. I'd love to go on a voyage, would you? The idea of an Atlantic voyage terrified her: she was sure to be seasick all the time. It is often used in other contexts with discovery. E.g. Learning English is a voyage of discovery! 15

17 Trip is shorter than a journey, a brief one, made by land or water; е.g. Did you enjoy your week end trip to the seaside? We took a trip / went on a trip to the beach last weekend. Go on a trip suggests an organised short excursion, where as take a trip or have a trip could be something you do yourselves in your own car. Tour is a journey in which a short stay is made at a number of places (usually with the view of sightseeing), the traveller finally returning to the place from which he had started; е.g. On our Southern England tour we visited Windsor, Oxford, Cambridge, Stratford on Avon and then came back to London. Cruise is a sea voyage from port to port, esp. a pleasure trip; е.g. The Mediterranean cruise promised many interesting impressions. Hitch hiking is travelling by getting free rides in passing automobiles and walking between rides; е.g. Hitch hiking is a comparatively new way of travelling which gives one a chance to see much without spending anything. Some words connected with travel Last week he flew to New York. It was an early morning flight. The plane was to take off at 6 a.m. and land at 7 a.m. He was stranded at the airport. The plane was delayed by fog. Air passengers often suffer such delays. Trains always run on time here. You have to change trains at Crewe. We are sailing on the QE2. It sets sail at noon. It will dock in New York at 6 p.m. I hope the sea won't be rough I might be seasick. The ship was wrecked. The passengers were marooned on a desert island. Our car does 10 km to the litre. It goes quite fast. We can usually overtake other cars. The car swerved into the middle of the road to avoid the cyclist. He backed/reversed the car into the drive and parked in front of the house. 16

18 Different means of travel Vocabulary Words booking office journey smoker cabin hitch hiking (smoking car) cargo ship luggage speed cruise luggage van steamer deck porter tour dining car rough travel engine sail trip fare sea gull voyage flight seasickness walker guide sleeper (sleeping car) wave Word Combinations to go on a journey, trip, to travel second/standard class voyage, a package tour to travel by air (train, to call at a port boat, cruiser, liner, etc.) to go ashore to change from train to boat, bad (good) sailor (cruiser, liner) to make a trip, journey (But: to change for a boat. on deck Also: Where do I change for on shore Paris?) to look inviting to be seasick, to be travelsick to be due at (a place) (in any kind of transport) direct/through train single ticket return ticket (return berth) to travel/go first class 17

19 Dialogue Alex: Personally I hate seeing people off. I prefer being seen off myself. I'm extremely fond of travelling and feel terribly envious of any friend who is going anywhere. I can't help feeling I should so much like to be in his place. Bert: But what method of travelling do you prefer? Alex: For me there is nothing like travel by air; it is more comfortable, more convenient and of course far quicker than any other method. There is none of the dust and dirt of a railway or car journey, none of the trouble of changing from train to steamer and then to another train. Besides, flying is a thrilling thing. Don't you agree? Bert: I think I should like to say a word or two for trains. With a train you have speed, comfort and pleasure combined. From the comfortable corner seat of a railway carriage you have a splendid view of the whole countryside. If you are hungry, you can have a meal in the dining car; and if the journey is a long one you can have a wonderful bed in a sleeper. Besides, do you know any place that's more interesting than a big railway station? There is the movement, the excitement, the gaiety of people going away or waiting to meet friends. There are the shouts of the porters as they pull luggage along the platforms to the waiting trains, the crowd at the booking office getting tickets, the hungry and thirsty ones hurrying to the refreshment rooms before the train starts. No, really! Do you know a more exciting place than a big railway station? Сесil: I do. Alex: And that is? Сесil: A big sea port, For me there is no travel so fine as by boat. I love to feel the deck of the boat under my feet, to see the rise and fall of the waves, to feel the fresh sea wind blowing in my face and hear the cry of the sea gulls. And what excitement, too, there is in coming into the harbour and 18

20 seeing round us all the ships, steamers, cargo ships, sailing ships, rowing boats. Alex: Well, I suppose that's all right for those that like it, but not for me. I'm always seasick, especially when the sea is a little bit rough. Bert: I've heard that a good cure for seasickness is a small piece of dry bread. Alex: Maybe; but I think a better cure is a large piece of dry land. D a v i d : Well, you may say what you like about aeroplane flights, sea voyages, railway journeys or tours by car, but give me a walking tour any time. What does the motorist see of the country? But the walker leaves the dull broad highway and goes along little winding lanes where cars can't go. He takes mountain paths through the heather, he wanders by the side of quiet lakes and through the shade of woods. He sees the real country, the wild flowers, the young birds in their nests, the deer in the forest; he feels the quietness and calm of nature. And besides, you are saving your railway fare travelling on foot No one can deny that walking is the cheapest method of travelling, So I say: a walking tour for me. Exercise 1 Answer the questions: What means of travel do you know? Why are many people fond of travelling? Why do some people like travelling by train? Do you like travelling by train? What makes you like/dislike it? What are the advantages of a sea voyage? What are the advantages of hitch hiking? What kind of people usually object to travelling by sea? What are the advantages and disadvantages of travelling by air? Have you ever travelled by air? 19

21 How do you like it? What do you think about walking tours? What is, in your opinion, the most enjoyable means of travel? What way of travelling affords most comfort for elderly people? (Give your reasons.) Do you think travel helps a person to become wiser? Exercise 2 Role playing. Work in groups of four or five: You are a family deciding on the type of holiday you will go on next summer. Then report to the other families on your final decision, explaining the reasons for your choice. Point out advantages and disadvantages, giving warning based on personal experience.

22 Vocabulary to travel on business to travel for pleasure to go abroad to have at one s disposal to go/to travel by train to come in to go out to stand at the platform ready to leave to carry luggage to the train to push the luggage on the trucks to get in to get out to wait in a queue to leave/take the luggage it s time to board the train to buy a ticket At the Railway Station It's common knowledge that nowadays people travel a lot. They travel on business and for pleasure, about the country and abroad. Those who wish to travel have at their disposal various means of transport: express trains and big ships, cars and jet airliners. Although we all agree that the future belongs to the air transport, the railway is still one of the most popular means of communication. Of course, if people are short of time and have to travel a long distance they usually travel by air. But if they have time, they prefer to go by train. With a train you have speed, comfort and pleasure combined. From the comfortable corner seat of a carriage you have a splendid view of the countryside. If you are hungry, you can have a meal in the dining car and if the journey is long, you can have a comfortable bed in a sleeper. A big railway station is a very busy and interesting place. Let's imagine that we are at one of them. There are a lot of platforms at which trains come in and go out. A train is standing at one of the platforms ready to leave. The porters are 21

23 very busy carrying luggage to the train or pushing it on their trucks. On another platform a train has just come in. Some passengers are getting out, others are getting in. Those who haven't got their tickets in advance are waiting in queues at the booking office. At the bookstalls people are choosing books, magazines and newspapers for the journey. At the cloakroom some people are leaving and taking their luggage. There are a lot of notices in a big railway station. You may see EN- TRANCE and EXIT. There is also a WAITING ROOM where you can relax until it is time to board your train. If you are hungry or thirsty, you'll go to the REFRESHMENT ROOM. If you don't know the number of the platform from which your train leaves, look for the notices ARRIVALS and DEPARTURES. They will tell you the number of the platform. When you arrive in a large town you may leave your heavy luggage at the station. In this case, you will look for the CLOAKROOM or LEFT LUGGAGE OFFICE. You will see the notice BOOKING OFFICE. This is where you buy your ticket. If you don't know the time or the platform your train leaves from, you'll go to the INQUIRY OFFICE or the INFORMATION BU- REAU. Exercise 1 In pairs or groups, answer the questions. 1. How often do you travel by train? 2. Do you enjoy travelling by train? Why/Why not? 3. What do you like or dislike about large stations? 4.

31 Unit 4 Travel by air Vocabulary flight to travel by air (excess/heavy/hand) luggage to check in checking desk to put the luggage on a trolley immigration officer to check a ticket security guard to weigh the luggage departure lounge to put on a conveyer belt cheap duty free goods to carry away departures board to take the hand luggage on the announcement plane departure gate to board the plane passenger to be on board captain to taxi cabin crew (stewards and stewardesses) to look after smb to take off cockpit to walk up and down plane to be going through some turbulence runway permission to warn smb control tower to be a bit bumpy airliner to fasten seat belts aisle to land headphones to while away the time Air Travel When travelling by air you have to get to the airport early in order to check in about an hour before your flight. If you have a lot of lug- 30

32 gage, you can put it on a trolley and push it to the checking desk where someone will check your ticket and weigh your luggage. If you have excess luggage, it can be expensive. Your heavy luggage is put on a conveyer belt and carried away. A light bag is classified as hand luggage and you can take it with you on the plane. An immigration officer looks at your passport and a security guard checks your hand luggage before you go into the departure lounge to wait till your flight is called. If you want to, you can buy some cheap duty free goods here. Then you see on the departures board or hear an announcement that you must board your plane. You go through the departure gate, then there is sometimes a security check before you actually enter the plane. When all the passengers are on board and when the captain and his crew are ready in the cockpit, the plane begins to taxi to the end of the runway. Finally, permission is received from the control tower and the plane moves faster and faster in order to take off. Flying is fun. I like being in a big airliner with the cabin crew (stewards and stewardesses) looking after me. They walk up and down the aisle bringing meals and drinks; and if the flight is going through some turbulence, they warn everybody that it might be a bit bumpy and ask us to fasten our seat belts. On a long flight I like listening to music through the headphones available to all passengers, and sometimes I have a sleep. I enjoy it all so much that I never want the plane to land. Answer the questions. Why do passengers have to come to the airport an hour before the departure? What does a passenger do if he/she has a lot of luggage? What do you have to do if you have excess luggage? Where do passengers wait for their plane? 31

33 What happens when all the passengers are on board? Does the writer like travelling by air? Why? How does he while away the time during the flight? Departures When you arrive at the airport, you can look at the departures board which shows the flight numbers (e.g. BA735), departure times (e.g. 0840) and destinations (e.g. Venice). At the check in desk they weigh your luggage. Usually you can take about 20 kilos. If it is more, you may have to pay excess baggage (= you pay extra). They also check your ticket and give you a boarding card for the plane with your seat number on it. Then you go through passport control where an official checks your passport, and into the departure lounge. Here, you can also buy things in the duty free, e.g. perfume or alcohol. About half an hour before take off, you go to a gate number, e.g. gate 14, where you wait before you get on the plane. When you board (= get on) the plane, you find your seat. If you have hand luggage, you can put it under your seat or in the overhead locker above your seat. If there are no delays (= when you have to wait until a later time for some reason), the plane moves towards the runway. (= the area where planes take off and land). NOTE: Delay can be used as a noun and verb. It is a common word at airports. There's a two hour delay on our flight. Why is the flight delayed? What's the reason for the delay? We were delayed at Athens airport. 32

34 The flight The captain (= the pilot) or cabin crew (= people who look after passengers) may say these things: Please fasten your seat belt and put your seat in the upright position. May we remind passengers (= to passengers: please remember) that there is no smoking now until you are inside the terminal building (= the part of the airport where passengers arrive and depart). The cabin crew are now coming round with landing cards (= cards you have to fill in when you enter certain countries). NOTE: The cabin crew are both men (stewards) and women (stewardesses). They are also called flight attendants. Arrival When the plane lands (= arrives on the ground), you have to wait for it to stop. When the doors are open, you get off the plane and walk through the terminal building and go to the baggage reclaim (= place where you collect your luggage). You go through customs (GREEN = nothing to declare; RED = goods to declare). At most airports, you can hire a car (= rent a car). NOTE: You hire something for a short period, and rent something for a long period, e.g. a flat. For a car you can use both. On Board the Plane «Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Captain Gibson and his crew welcome you aboard British Airways Flight 178 to New York. We're now flying at a height of 30,000 feet. 33

35 Our speed is approximately 600 miles an hour. We'll land in New York in five and a half hours. The temperature in New York is now minus 3 C. In a few minutes you'll be able to see the Irish Coast. Our stewards and stewardesses will serve lunch in half an hour». Answer the questions: Who welcomes the passengers on board the plane? At what height and speed are they flying? When will the plane land in New York? When will lunch be served? On Board the Plane «Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. On behalf of Captain Sonnleitner and his crew I should like to welcome you aboard this Swissair DC 9 aircraft. Our flying time to Geneva will be approximately an hour and twenty minutes during which we shall be serving you with light refreshments. Please place your light hand luggage in the overhead rack, observe the no smoking signs, fasten your seat belts and ensure that your seats are in the vertical position for the take off. For your safety and comfort during the flight you are requested to read the safety instructions which you will find in front of your seat». «Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please. In a few minutes we shall be arriving at Geneva airport. Will you please return to your seats, place them in the vertical position, fasten your seat belts and observe the no smoking signs. Please remain seated until the aircraft has come to a complete halt and remember to take all your hand luggage with you. We hope you have had a pleasant flight and that we shall soon have the pleasure of welcoming you aboard again. Thank you». 34

36 Down to Earth «Your attention, please! British Airways regrets to announce the cancellation of Flight BA 564 to London due to technical difficulties. Will all the passengers now awaiting the departure of this flight please contact the British Airways ground hostess at the information desk in the transit lounge. Will passengers who are booked on this flight from Geneva and are now waiting in the departure lounge, also go to the information desk in the transit area. A ground hostess is waiting by Gate No I to escort you. Thank you!» Exercise 1 Role play the following situation: You are in the foyer of the airport. Suddenly you hear an announcement that your flight is delayed. Act out a conversation with an airport official. Find out why there is a delay and how long you are going to wait. Ask what the airline is going to do about meals and hotel accommodation if the plane is delayed for a long time. Exercise 2 Answer the questions. Do you like travelling by air? Why/Why not? Is there an airport in your native city/town? Is it far from the city/town? How can you get there? How long does it take you to get there? What is the airport like? What do you like or dislike about it? When do passengers have to arrive at the airport for registration? 35

37 What is registration like? How much luggage can a passenger take without extra pay? Who informs passengers about flights? Are flights often cancelled in this country? Can you say why? Is there a security check before you board the plane? Who takes you on board the plane? What are the duties of a stewardess? When are passengers requested to fasten their seat belts? Do they serve meals on board the plane? Can passengers smoke during the flight? Do you get airsick when on a plane? When did you last travel by plane? Where did you fly? How did you get to the airport? When did registration begin? What was it like? Did you have excess luggage? What did you do after you had registered your ticket and luggage? Was your journey pleasant? Have you ever travelled abroad? Where/When? What is the procedure of going through immigration and customs? Did you have any dutiable articles? Did you declare them?
