INTRODUCTION
Michael: Must-Know English Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 16 - Going on a Trip.
Michael: Hi everyone, I'm Michael.
Alisha: And I'm Alisha.
Michael: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in English about being at the airport, waiting for a flight. Jennifer waits at the airport for her flight, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Alisha: "We're off to Spain! Later!"
Michael: Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Michael: Listen again to Jennifer's post.

Alisha: (Regular) "We're off to Spain! Later!"
Michael: Let's break this down.
Alisha: First is the expression "We're off to Spain!"
Michael: "We're off toโ€ฆ" is an expression used when you are about to depart. It's most commonly used when leaving for a destination far away, such as another country or city. Listen again.
Alisha: (SLOW) "We're off to Spain!" (REGULAR) "We're off to Spain!"
Michael: Then comes the word...
Alisha: "Later!"
Michael: "Later" means "a time in the future," but it's also a slang expression meaning "goodbye"; it's short for "see you later." Listen again.
Alisha: (SLOW) "Later!" (REGULAR) "Later!"
Michael: All together...
Alisha: "We're off to Spain! Later!"

Michael: Her husband, Chris, says...
Alisha: (SLOW) "Sun and sea, here we come!" (REGULAR) "Sun and sea, here we come!"

Alisha: "Sun and sea, here we come!"
Michael: Use this expression to show that you are feeling excited about the trip ahead.
Michael: Her neighbor, Gloria, says...
Alisha: (SLOW) "Can I come?" (REGULAR) "Can I come?"
[Pause]
Alisha: "Can I come?"
Michael: Use this expression to show that you are feeling excited for someone and a little bit jealous.
Michael: Her nephew, Alex, says...
Alisha: (SLOW) "Hold on to your passports and wallets!" (REGULAR) "Hold on to your passports and wallets!"
[Pause]
Alisha: "Hold on to your passports and wallets!"
Michael: Use this expression to show you are being cynical about the chances of crime in the place someone is going.
Michael: Her high school friend, Wendy, says...
Alisha: (SLOW) "Can you smuggle me in your suitcase?" (REGULAR) "Can you smuggle me in your suitcase?"
[Pause]
Alisha: "Can you smuggle me in your suitcase?"
Michael: Use this expression to be funny.
