Pronunciation: Tah-xee,  Sahnd-weech,  Kohs-toh, Ah-dool-toh,  Ray-sayr-vah-seeohn,  Ah.hayn-tay,  oh-tayl,  Ahay-roh-plah-noh,  Ahey-roh-lee-naya,  Dees-tahn.seeah

Translation: Taxi,  Sandwich,  Cost,  Adult,  Reservation,  Agent,  Hotel,  Airplane,  Airline,  Distance

Function: Nouns

Intro :

These all are very useful Spanish nouns for the airport that write and sound pretty much the same in English. Also, maybe you noticed that the ending “tion” in “Reservation” gets slightly changed to “ción”. This is a useful thing to remember: Most words ending in “tion” in English end in “ción” in Spanish.

Detail:

You can also see that “Distance” is translated as “Distancia”. The ending “-nce” is often mapped to “-ncia”; as in “assistance” and “asistencia”. You should also keep this in mind, especially while in Latin- America or Spain.

Example:

¿Me puede recomendar un hotel?

Translation:

Can you recommend me a hotel?
