Today we’re going to learn a few more phrases to help us navigate airports all around the world.

Before we start amigos, are you planning to travel over the Holidays?

I’ll be going to Melbourne again soon to visit my family before the end of the year.

But this time I’ll be traveling by train! Not flying this time around.

Last year we were driving to Melbourne… It took about 8 hours of driving.

This year we are going to try the train.

Apparently you can travel from Adelaide to Melbourne by train and it will also take about 8 hours, but it will be more comfy. Plus you get given breakfast, lunch and dinner so that’s all good. Looking forward to traveling in comfort!


It’s been a long time since I travelled anywhere by train. I’m not counting public transport and short distances. This time I’m going on a long voyage.

I will let you know how it all goes next year. I’ll share my experiences with you then.

So let’s begin today’s episode.

Let’s pretend I’ll be flying to an imaginary country with a massive airport and I need some assistance.

Today I’ll share with you three more phrases to help you get around an airport. Towards the end of the episode you’ll get an opportunity to practice these phrases. I call this segment ‘Repeat after me’.

Oh while I have you here, you can go to the English Made Simple youtube channel to also practice the phrases we learn today.

Oki doki?

Let’s get cracking!

The first phrase I’ll share with you is the following:

English Travel Phrase #1 – Where is the baggage claim area?

Explanation: This question is used to enquire about the location where passengers can retrieve their checked luggage after a flight.

Example: Upon landing, you might ask an airport staff member, “Excuse me, could you please tell me where the baggage claim area is?”

Ok most airports are good at displaying the signs to the Baggage Claim area. You’ll see a symbol of a bag somewhere and an arrow pointing in the direction of the baggage claim area.

In any case, if the airport is way too big and confusing you may want to stop someone somewhere at the airport and ask them this question:

Where is the baggage claim area?

Ok, ‘easy peasy japanesey.’

English Travel Phrase #2 – Where is the check-in counter?
