Text-related Information

  • Make Reservations for Flights

    Many people call the reservations office for booking flights. The clerks at the reservations desk are called reservations agents. Their job is to make or confirm reservations. Passengers who have made a reservation for a flight go to the booking office to collect tickets, or the tickets booked can be delivered to them.

  • Check-in Procedure

    Usually you need to arrive at the airport check-in counter (登机手续台), and you need to show your ticket and travel documents like your passport. You have your luggage checked in ( 行李托运 ) there and you’re given a boarding pass (登机牌). This boarding pass shows that you have completed the check-in procedure and can board your plane. Now you go through the security check ( 安全检查 ), where your hand-on luggage is searched. In the departure lounge (候机室) you sit and wait until your flight is called to depart.

  • Flight Attendant

    A large number of flight attendants are

    women. Also called airhostesses(空姐) or

    stewardesses(乘务员), they provide service

    to passengers.

Difficult Sentences

1.(Para.2) It took fifteen minutes for her to realize that she had spelled my name incorrectly.

  • Analysis: This sentence can also be written as “It took her fifteen minutes to realize…incorrectly”. It is the formal subject of the sentence, and the actual subject is the infinitive clause for her to realize with her as the logical subject of the verb realize, whose object is introduced by that.

  • Translation: 花了15分钟她才搞清楚是我把他的名字搞错了。

  • e.g. It took several hours for me to understand that I was wrong.

2.(Para. 2) She gave me my ticket and told me I’d better check in my luggage quickly, or I’d miss my flight.

  • Analysis: I’d better check…my flight is an object clause of the verb told with that omitted. Or is a conjunction meaning “if not”, or “otherwise.” It is used after a suggestion to show what the result will be if the suggestion is not followed.

  • e.g. He fell in love with the girl who was three years older than him.

4.(Para. 5) I looked out of the window and --oh my God--there was smoke coming out of the wing.

  • Analysis: Coming out of the wing is apresent participle clause modifying smoke. This clause can also be rewritten as “smoke that was coming out of the wing”

  • e.g. The road leading to my hometown is under construction.
