I have travelled by air for one time. it's my most spectacular experience that I won't forget . I visited hanoi , which is the capital of Vietnam ,and my flight last about 2 hours and 45 minutes including connecting time .I love Hanoi so much I hope to go there again if I have a chance

I travelled by plane many times. I visited my hometown in Dalat city. It is one of the most beautiful places with the cool ưeather in Vietnam. Finish to study this lesson help me more words at the airport. Thanks so much

I traveled by air once. the first time for me to enter an airport and take a plane was about one month ago and i'm sad that it was late in my life as i 'm 35 now. the plane took off in time and the flight time was about 2 hours and 45 minutes. First i entered the main airport hole and went to check in desk. My baggage didn't exceed the maximum allowed weight. I took the boarding card and went to stamp the passport. Then i went to the duty free to buy some gifts then i wen to gait in time. Flight is so amazing and adenturous

I travelled by plane and my longest flight was to Egypr for almost 20 hours(Including transit time). I liked it a lot because its a beatiful country.Meal is tasty and even you can drink some red wine!.

What is the meaning of "duty free" ?

Hello Peter,

I'm afraid that the answer on Task 4 might have a mistake.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, duty-free has two meanings:
1. goods that you can buy in special shops in airports, on ships, etc., without paying tax on them.
2. a shop at an airport, on a ship, etc. where you can buy duty-free goods.
Since people can buy duty free on the plane, and the vocabulary doesn't specify as a shop only, wouldn't "duty free" be right to put in the group of "Things in both an airport and a plane" rather than "Things or places in an airport"?

I would appreciate your clarification.

Best regards,
