Northwest Airlines flight 28 from Manila scheduled to arrive at 12:20 will arrive 40 minutes early at 11:40. United Airlines flight 827 from Honolulu scheduled to arrive at 15:00 will be 1 hour 15 minutes late.

What happens to the airplane that should arrive at 12:20?

Instruction to practice:

In order to understand and make this type of lesson effectively, you can apply the following steps:

1. Catch the topic and the question :

The situation taking place here is:


This is traffic information on the radio.

The question is:


What happens to the airplane that should arrive at 12:20?

2. Note the main ideas:

In this form of listening, we need to pay attention to the information relating to the airplane that should arrive at 12:20. And you should also focus on key words instead of trying to hear all the sentences then missing important words.

After listening, we have some key words as follows:

12時20分 : 12: 20

定刻(ていこく): appointed time, schedule

ノースウエスト: Northwest Airlines

28便(28びん): flight 28

マニラ発(まにらはつ): from Manila

40分早く: 40 minutes early

11時40分に到着(とうちゃく): to arrive at 11:40

3. Choosing the answer:

According to what we have noted, we can deduct:

+ The flight that should arrive at 12:20 is flight 28

+ 40 minutes early (40分早く): It will arrive at 11:40 (11時40分に到着)

+ 到着 and  つくhave the same meaning (to arrive)

So we choose answer 3. 11時40分につく
