First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||Before your trip, you should check the expiration date of your passport and whether or not you need a visa for your destination country.|
If traveling to the United States, and if you have traveled there many times before, you may be questioned further in a separate room.
Remember to remove your passport cover before submitting it to the immigration/customs officer.
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.

Now, please answer the following questions. I will check if your sentences are complete and if the grammar is correct.
|1.||Have you ever experienced any difficulties when passing through customs or immigration?|
|2.||Have you ever had anything to declare in customs?|
|3.||Have you ever been questioned further in a separate room?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
(Please review your student’s answers by sending the correct answers in complete sentences. After that, ask your student to read aloud his or her corrected answers.)
Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
You will act out immigration and customs scenes in an airport. You will be the customs/immigration officer asking the questions, and your tutor will answer the questions.
(Your tutor will pretend to be the traveler.)
