One essential aspect of speaking English is being able to tell people you know about the trips you've taken - where you've been, where you're going and where you'd like to go. In this lesson you'll learn some important vocabulary you can use to tell you friends and family, or even a guy who's doing a survey on traveling, all about your past travel experiences.
