  • questions and phrases you must know in order to check in very quickly at the airport. Hey

  • friends teacher Prix here to help you talk to anyone anywhere anytime in English. Thanks

  • for joining me on another video and if it is your first time here thank you so much

  • for taking the time to watch this video I hope I can help you with this lesson and make

  • sure to subscribe so that you don't miss any of my weekly videos. But here we go, question

  • number one, where are you flying to, today? basically, the check-in attendant wants to

  • know where you are going, where are you flying to, today? So you can say to Montreal or just

  • the name of the place, Montreal. Number two, May I see your passport, please? Or passport

  • and ticket, please. Sometimes they may ask you for the ticket, sometimes they may ask

  • you only for the passport, it depends. So when the check-in attendant asks you this

  • question you can just give the passport and the ticket or you can say here it is or here

  • you are. Question number 3, are you checking any bags? When we travel we usually bring

  • bags because we need to take clothes, personal items, so we need bags. ok, at the check-in,

  • you need to check this bag. ok. It is very important to do that. So this is a very common

  • question they ask you. ok. To answer this question, here are some possibilities. yes,

  • two bags. ok and then you say the number of bags you are checking, ok. There is usually

  • a limit of two bags but sometimes you can pay an additional fee and check more bags.

  • It depends. Or if it is only one you can say, just this one, just = only, just this one

  • or maybe you are not checking any bags you only have your carry-on luggage. What is a

  • carry-on luggage? it is a piece of luggage that you bring with you on the airplane. ok,

  • so you don't check it, you bring this bag with you. So you can also say well no, I am

  • not. I only have a carry-on. Very well, question number 4. This question is very popular at

  • American airports. American airports are known to be very strict with security. This may

  • sound like a silly question but it is a popular one, especially at American airports. Have

  • you left your bag unattended at any time? Basically, the check-in attendant is asking

  • you if you left your bag alone even if for two minutes while you were at the airport

  • or coming to the airport, just say no, ok. No, I haven't. ok. Or just say "no", alright.

  • I used present perfect to ask this question, it is a very common structure to ask this

  • question have you left your bag unattended at any time? NO, I haven't or just say no.

  • Another common question related to this subject is has anyone, has a person, has anyone given

  • you anything to carry on the flight, to bright to the flight? Basically, again I am asking

  • you if a person, a friend or someone gave you something for you to bring on the flight,

  • ok. People as a matter of security we should never accept anything from anyone, so if it

  • is true, if the answer is yes, just say yes, ok to avoid any problems and remember, just

  • bring things from people you trust 100%; Nice, are you enjoying this video? yes, how about

  • hitting the like button? That really helps the channel grow and if you are finding this

  • information useful, how about sharing this with people that you like, people on Facebook,

  • your friends who are about to travel and will definitely benefit from these tips here. Nice,

  • number 5 is not a question, it is a command, an instruction. Place your bag on the scale.

  • Why is this important? I have seen people have problems to understand this command at

  • airports ok? so it is important to understand that. When the check-in attendant tells you

  • to place your bag on the scale, as you can see here on the screen, this is a scale and

  • it is where you have to put your bag, ok so just follow the instructions one bag at a

  • time. If you have two bags put one first, if you have another bag, wait for the check-in

  • attendant to tell you to put the second bag on the scale. Oh and Priscila, do I need to

  • say anything? Not really, just do what the check-in attendant tells you, you can say

  • ok, alright, but you don't need to say much. Number 6 would you like a window or aisle

  • seat? Basically in this question, the check-in attendant wants to know which seat you prefer,

  • now important thing, not all check-in attendants will ask you this question, ok so if you have

  • a preference, it is important to talk about it, but I will help you in a second with that.

  • So if the check-in attendant asks you would you like a window or an aisle seat? So as

  • you can see these are the three types of seat you have inside an airplane. You have the

  • window seat, the middle seat and the asile seat. just tell the check-in attendant which

  • one you prefer, the middle seat please, the aisle seat please, the window seat please

  • or you can say I would likethe aisle seat please, I would like the window seat please.

  • Now as I said, if the check in attendant doesn't ask you this question and you wanna talk about

  • it you can say, Excuse-me, can I get a middle seat, please? or Can I get an aisle seat,

  • please? You can ask this question, ok? and finally number 7 not really a question, an

  • instruction, ok a command. After you finish the check-in the check-in attendant will give

  • you some instructions of what to do, of where to go, ok so they will usually say Here is

  • your boarding pass, this is a boarding pass. Go through security, and your flight to Montreal

  • will depart from Gate C26. The flight boards at 2:30. At this moment, the check-in attendant

  • is just giving you some additional instruction of where to go, if you don't understand this

  • information, you can check all this information on your boarding pass. If you want to ask

  • the check-in attendant to explain again all you can say is excuse me can you say that

  • again please, pardon me? and the person will repeat or you can, can you repeat that again

  • please? On my blog you can find 10 additional phrases and questions that you may need at

  • the airport so I will leave the link here in the descriptions. So that being said, if

  • you watched this video until now, congratulations, I want you to write in the comments one question

  • that you didn't know, ok that is new for you, so write one question here in the comments

  • and I will reply to you. Thank you so much and I will see you next time! Bye
