Chinese in Daily Life-0021( Sentence:122--125): How To Find Transport.



Hi friends, last weekend we learned how to greet a new friend; today I would like to present you with some new sentences about finding transport.

I think that the first language problem you will have in China, maybe as soon as you arrive at the airport, will be finding transport to get to your destination.

This week, to go with the new sentences in Daily Chinese, I have opened a new column -- Vocabulary In Chinese. The first group of new words are names of common forms of transport. I really hope both parts can support each other and they are a little help to you in your Chinese learning and your travel in China. :-)
