Travel, Trip, Journey and Tour | Engish for Tourism


Travel, trip, tour, journey… What are the differences between these four commonly confused English words? Let’s talk about it! Hello everyone and welcome back to Advance in English! My name is Roxana
and as the title of today’s video tells you, we are going to talk about these
four commonly confused English words. By the end of this video, not only will you
know the differences between these words and know how to use them, but I will also
give you some common collocations so make sure that you keep on watching
right till the end. Alright let’s get started! Frst and foremost let’s talk
about the word ‘travel’. This is commonly used as a verb, which means to go from one place to another and usually to spend some time in that other place. For example, I love traveling! I love going to new places, discovering new cultures. eating new food, meeting new people and all the wonderful things that go with travelling. ‘Travel’ can also be used as a noun to talk about the act of travelling in general. For example, my last job involved a lot of travel it was actually quite tiring. Where was the last place that you travelled to? Write a comment below this
video and get using this word right now and then come back to watch the rest! The world ‘trip’ – at least in this context – is used as a noun and this can be used to
talk about the specific time of going somewhere or the act of going somewhere
and returning. Usually it’s for a shorter period of time. For example, my sister has
just taken a trip to town. She’s gone to buy some groceries but she’ll be back in
a few hours. ‘Journey’ is a noun, which means the physical act of moving from one place to another. This is a small part of travelling. For example, I could say I really enjoyed
traveling around India last year, but I remember there was a very long journey
from Mumbai to Delhi. Within the context of bigger travel there was a smaller travel called a journey and it’s the physical movement What is the longest
journey that you’ve ever taken? Was it longer than Mumbai to Delhi? Because
that’s pretty long! Write a comment telling me about it just below this video. ‘Tour’ can be used both as a noun and a verb and this is a visit to a place or an area where you actually want to learn something about it. So it’s not
just a holiday where you’re sat on a beach but you’re actually going somewhere and
you’re involved a bit more in that place. For example, I had a really good tour in
Paris. I went to see the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre Museum… I’m not too sure how to pronounce any of those things so I’m sorry if you’re French! It can also be used as a verb, so for example, I
really enjoyed touring around France last year. That means I went to a few
different places and I got really involved in those places. I learned a lot
about them. Okay, so now we’ve looked at the differences between these four words and how to use them in example sentences, let’s talk about some common
collocations. First up, we’ve got ‘travel’. You can travel light, which means to travel with just a small amount of luggage. You can also work as a travel agent a person who books flights, hotels and
other things. You can also work as a tour guide okay,
but be careful with these two because you can’t really be a tour agent and you
can’t be a travel guide. A travel guide would be a physical book that would
provide information whereas a tour guide is the person that provides the
information for tourists. You can go on a day trip which means just to go
somewhere for the day and return back home in the evening. It’s quite common in
England for people to take a day trip to London. If you’re taking a day trip you
might want to buy a round-trip ticket which is a ticket that gets you from
your origin to your destination and back to your origin. From A to B, back to A. If you’re going on a long journey make sure that you’ve checked some sort of journey
planner so you know what you’re doing, where to go, what bus stop to get off at
and what trains to take. And make sure if you do need to change train or change bus, that you have planned your onward journey. Make sure you know what you are
doing after the first bus or after the first train. Alright guys, that’s all
for today’s video! As always, if it was helpful for you don’t forget to like, subscribe, share, comment… Just do something to let me know that you’re
there and you’re watching and I’m not just talking to myself. Please! Thank you for watching and I will see you next time! Bye for now!
