John went to England for a vacation last year. John thought that England and America were the same. He imagined that he would feel like he was at home there. John was wrong.
When John got to London, he asked someone how to get to his hotel. The person told him to take the Tube. John didn’t know the meaning of the Tube. John was nervous. He asked another person, and she used gestures to show him where he should go. John understood that the Tube was the subway.
After three days, John could communicate with the people he met because he had learned some new words. He learned that ‘chips’ were called ‘crisps’, and that ‘french fries’ were called ‘chips’. He learned that a ‘truck’ in American English was a ‘lorry’ in British English. Some words were very different from the ones he knew. John memorized the different words that people used in England because he didn’t want to make a mistake or be rude. It was a challenge, but he did it. He had a nice vacation.
