Dear teachers,

Please read the following ad because I have some questions about it.

  • All fares require a two-week advance purchase.

    1. What does "wolrd fares" mean here? Why are these two world combined?
    2. "No Saturday overnight stay required"-- why?

    3. Thanks for your time.

1-- It's the name of the agency, is it not? It means tickets for all over the world.

2-- No idea; perhaps many competitors offer cheap tickets if the customer is willing to accept poor connections.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Excuse me Mister Micawber,

What do poor connections mean by?


A connection is when you must change planes in the course of a journey, e.g, if I fly from Tokyo to Chiang Mai, I must change planes in Bangkok. A poor connection is when you must wait in an airport for an inordinately long period-- or have to run to catch the next plane!
Ok! that connection.....I got it and thank you very much.
