Lesson Transcript

Hi, everyone. My name is Bridget and welcome to today's lesson. The topic for this lesson is, “Top 10 Words to Know Before Riding on an Airplane.” Let's get started.
Cabin. The cabin of the plane is where all the seats are. When you get on an airplane you have your ticket and you go into the cabin to take your seat. You can take an aisle seat, a middle seat, or my personal favorite, a window seat, so you can look out the window and see all the cool stuff go by. You are in the “cabin.”
Seat belt. “Please fasten your seat belt before takeoff.” “Please fasten your seat belt before takeoff.” The “seat belt” is the belt that keeps you safe. You always want to have your seat belt fastened when you are seated. Just like when you are in a car, you have a seat belt. When you are riding on the airplane, you want to fasten your seat belt. Click. “Seat belt.” The seat belt clicks into place and it protects you. The “seat belt.” Always wear your seat belt.
Pillow. “Could I get another pillow a pillow? A “pillow” is the nice cushion that you get to lean against or used to help your back. A pillow is great to have on very long flights when you want to sleep. It's great to have a pillow. Sometimes people buy neck pillows, which go around your neck and you can lean your head on it. A pillow is a great thing to have to make your flight much more comfortable. Here is an example of a pillow with the Union Jack flag on it. Pillow.
Time difference. You should always be aware of the time difference from the place you're coming from and the place you're going to. “When traveling from Atlanta to Los Angeles, there is a 3-hour time difference.” If you're traveling between “time zones,” you will notice a time difference. So, the same thing happens if you are calling your friend in China. You know that maybe it's 3:00 p.m. where you are, but it might be 3:00 in the morning where they are. There's always going to be a time difference when you're calling or traveling between different time zones. If I get on the flight to Russia, I get out in Russia and its morning time. But, back where I came from, it might be nighttime because there is a time difference. Time difference is a very common thing to experience, especially if you're traveling very long distances. And after that, you might get jet lag, because the place you go to might be starting early morning, you arrive early morning, but your body feels like the time back where you're coming from. So where you're coming from it might be time to go to bed, but you're getting out over here where it's morning time. Because there's a “time difference.”
Overhead storage compartment. “Please store your luggage in the overhead storage compartment.” When you get onto the airplane and you enter the cabin and you find your seat number, you're going to need to put your small carry-on item in the “overhead storage compartment.” Everything you need to know is right in the name. It's an “overhead storage compartment.” It's a place where you can store your belongings and it's above your seat.
Emergency exit. “Please read the instructions if you are sitting next to an emergency exit.” On any airplane, there are usually multiple emergency exits. These are the exits that you need to use in the event of an emergency. If anything happens and you need to exit the airplane quickly, you use one of the emergency exits. It's always good to know where the nearest emergency exit is located, God forbid, in the terrible chance that you ever need to use one.
Flight attendant. If you have any questions, you can ask the flight attendant for assistance. The “flight attendants” are the people who work on the plane who go down the aisles and give you drinks, give you headsets, bring you your food. They are there to help you and to provide any assistance you need while you're on the flight.
Pilot. “I have been a pilot for more than 20 years.” The “pilot” is the person who flies the airplane. This person sits in the cockpit. It's called the “cockpit.” There is the pilot, there's usually a co-pilot. These are the people responsible for getting you where you need to go. Pilots usually make a lot of money because they have a lot of responsibility. They are carrying hundreds of people on the plane and need to fly as safely as possible. The “pilot.”
First class. “Flying first class is a very memorable experience.” “First class” is the section of the plane that gets better treatment. When you buy your ticket, you have the option of selecting first class. It costs a lot more money because you get special perks. You might have a different food menu, you might get free drinks, your seats will be much more comfortable, you'll have more space. Most people do not fly first class because it's usually very expensive. But if you ever get the opportunity, it's a great experience to sit in first class and get special treatment.
Economy class. Most people fly economy class because it's much cheaper. “Economy class” is also known as “coach.” It's the way most people fly. It's just a standard ticket, which means you just are in the regular seats in the cabin of the plane. You get regular treatment; you get regular food.
