English TIPS Week 32

Hi Fellow Travelers !
Today we’re going to talk about traveling.

What to know:

When it comes to spelling the forms of the verb travel,

  • traveled and traveling are more common in the U.S.,
  • and travelled and travelling are dominant everywhere else.
  • So It might have a different spelling wherever you’re going.

 Some interesting meanings of the word:

  • the activity of making journeys
  • movingfrom one place to another,  especially over a long distance.

Examples in a sentence:

  • “I am traveling to the U.S. for an important business conference next week.”
  • “I never go more than two days in a row without exercise even if I am traveling.”

Put the following in order of importance to you when you travel:

 Comfort             Safety             Price              Reliability            Speed

 Here is a list of things which irritate people when flying:

seats                trolleys                queues              luggage
