Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Have you made your _____________________ arrangements for the conference yet?

    • A.

      Journey

    • B.

      Ticket

    • C.

      Trip

    • D.

      Travel

    Correct Answer
    D. Travel
    Explanation
    "Have you made your travel arrangements for the conference yet?" - A collocation é 'travel arrangements'. Travel arrangements em português pode ser traduzido como preparativos de viagem. Lembre-se que quando falamos de collocations não estamos nos referindo a gramática, mas a palavras que geralmente aparecem juntas, ou seja, é muito mais comum ver e ouvir travel arrangements do que trip arrangements ou journey arrangements. Não significa que trip/journey arrangements não existem, mas não são tão comuns quanto travel arrangements.

    On Saturday we went on a day __________________ to an interesting old castle.

    • A.

      Journey

    • B.

    • C.

      Flight

    • D.

      Trip

    Correct Answer
    D. Trip
    Explanation
    "On Saturday we went on a day trip to an interesting old castle." - A collocation é 'day trip'. A day trip se refere a um tipo de viagem que pode ser feita em apenas um dia.

    De forma geral a diferença entre trip e journey é:
    "trip: an act of travelling from one place to another, and usually back again: a business trip - a five-minute trip by taxi"
    "journey: an act of travelling from one place to another, especially when they are a long way apart: a long and difficult journey across the mountains"

    A trip usually involves you going to a place and back again; a journey is usually one-way.

    A trip is often shorter than a journey, although it does not have to be: a trip to New York; a round-the-world trip. It is often short in time, even if it is long in distance. Journey is more often used when the travelling takes a long time and is difficult.
