Jerry is worried about using a taxi in China, so he asks his friend Liu Fay how to use a taxi in Beijing

Jerry: Hey Fay, is there anything I need to know about taking a taxi in Beijing?

Fay: Well, it’s pretty easy, Jerry. The first thing you have to do is to signal by holding your hand out. Next, you should find the right taxi. If you want to save money, you should find a taxi that charges only 1.20 (“one point two”) yuan per kilometer. If you want a more comfortable taxi, you can pay 1.60 yuan. The price is printed on a label shown in the back window of each taxi.

Jerry: Okay. So what do I do after I get in the taxi?

Fay: Of course, you should greet the driver and tell him where you want to go. After he starts driving, make sure he turns on the meter.

Jerry: What should I do if he can’t find my destination?

Fay: Then you have to give him directions. Tell him to turn left or right. That’s “zou guai” or “you guai” in Chinese. Or tell him to keep going straight, “yizhi wang qian zou”.

Jerry: Got it! Then I guess all I have to do is pay the driver and say “good-bye”, right?

Fay: Well, not quite. You should always ask for a receipt, which is printed out for every customer. That way, if you forget something in the taxi, you can get it back with no problem.

Jerry: Thanks Fay, that’s a big help!

A: Can you take me to Civic Opera House, please?

B: Sure thing. You going to that musical that's playing there?

A: Yes. But it starts at six. Do you think we'll make it in time?

B: Traffic's light and we're not that far away. I'll get you there in about ten minutes.

A: Great! I was late the last time I went, and I couldn't get in till intermission. That's not good if you're a theater critic for the paper like I am.

B: Well, don't worry; this time you'll have plenty of time to spare.

-- A short time later --

B: Here you are, sir, Civic Opera House. What did I tell you? You're thirty minutes early.

A: I sure appreciate it. How much do I owe you?

B: Seventeen twenty-five.

A: Okay, here's a twenty. Keep the change.

B: Thank you, sir. Enjoy the show.

A: I will. Thank you.

Hotel employee (H): Room service!

Lena (L): Monica, Monica, wake up! We overslept!

Monica (M): Hmmh?! What? What time is it?

L: It is already 10:30.

M: Oh no! Our airplane leaves at 1 o'clock. We'll never make it!

L: Yes, we will, but we have to hurry. Get up, I'll call a taxi.

Receptionist ®: Reception desk, how can I help you?

L: Hello? Front desk? This is room number 23. We need a taxi right away.

R: A taxi - when do you need it?

L: Monica, when will we be ready to go?

M: In fifteen minutes.

L: Ok, in 15 minutes. Thank you.

R: Sure. It will be attended to immediately.

M: There's our taxi!

Taxi driver (T): Good morning ladies!

M: Hi, we need to get to the airport as fast as we can! Our plane leaves in two hours.

T: Oh, that's tight. There is a lot of traffic today. What time is your flight exactly?

L: The departure time is 1:05 p.m. - to Stockholm.

T: Well, it's no good for me, but I think you should take the subway instead.

M: What's the fastest way there?

T: By taxi it'll take about an hour because of the traffic. If I take you to the central station, and you get a subway from there, you should only need about 40 minutes.

L: Maybe we should do that. Better to be on the safe side.

M: I think so, too.

M: Which subway line should we take?

T: We'll be at the subway station in a minute. You take line 5 to the airport. It should take about 30 minutes.

M: Great, then we'll be at the airport just before 12.

L: Where can we buy tickets?

T: There is a ticket machine on the platform. You can get two single tickets for 4 euros. Don't forget to cancel your ticket when you get in the train.

L: Cancel - do you mean stamp it?

T: That's right. So, here we are.

M: That's great. Thanks a million, we never would have made it without your help.

T: It was my pleasure. That will be 8 euros 30.

L: Here you go, 10 euros. Keep the change. Good-bye!

T: Thanks. Good luck and have a safe trip.

L: Bye!
