Checking in at the airport

Viajar es uno de los mayores placeres de la vida: descubrir un sitio nuevo, una cultura diferente, la forma de vida, la comida,… podríamos decir que todo son pros, pero es verdad que pensar en el momento del aeropuerto, facturar, y entender las indicaciones nos pone un poco nerviosos. Sobretodo a aquellos que están empezando a aprender inglés y van a comunicarse en este idioma.

Para practicar un poco el oído, os proponemos que escuchéis esta conversación en el mostrador de facturación de un aeropuerto dos veces y después contestéis a unas preguntas:

A) Answer these questions:

1. Where is the customer flying to?
2. Is there any problem with the flight?
3. What seat does he choose?
4. What time is the flight?
5. What gate is the flight departing from?

B) Complete the conversation
