第8回 “How long will it take to get to~ ”

Thank you for joining me again. It’s Golden week!

Happy Golden Week

Are you enjoying your Golden Week break?

  • Are you traveling anywhere?
  • If you are, where are you going?
  • Are you going overseas?
  • Are you taking a trip to a different part of Japan?
  • Are you going to visit your family?

Or maybe, you are not travelling anywhere. Maybe, you are just going to spend the long weekend relaxing.

If you are traveling you probably know all the major airports, railway stations and expressways across Japan will be packed with holiday travelers this weekend, which leads me to my podcast question.

How do you pass time on a long trip?

Here are 5 things you can do to pass time on a trip:

  1. Catch up on movies - this is what I did on my flights to and from Japan on my iPad mini..

  2. Meditate - you could try meditating, which would be quite a challenge on a plane or train, but it might help you get to sleep

  3. Strike up a conversation with someone, maybe in English.

  4. Journal - you could start a diary about your holiday.

5.Listen to the new Sandwich Eikaiwa lessons - Tavel English 2 and 3.
Over Golden week we are releasing new Sandwich Eikaiwa Travel lessons. And for the month of May they will be at no extra cost with any purchase of the Sandwich Eikaiwa product.

Now, lets have a listen to a new Sandwich Eikaiwa lesson.

How longは時間の長さを聞く場合に使います。この場合のtakeの意味は「時間がかかる」。Get toは「どこどこへ到着する」という意味です。
