As stressful as international travel can be, imagine what it is like for an elderly person who doesn't even speak English. Unfortunately it is a common concern for immigrants, when they invite their parents or other relatives to visit them in the United States. Sometimes it can be intense if there is a connection flight involved, or an unexpected delay/cancelation.

All of us at face the same problem, so we've been thinking about posting some easy-to-follow travel guides for senior citizens visiting the U.S. We will start below with a Chinese/English translation of frequently used terms around the airport, during a flight and through customs inspection. It is by no means an exclusive list, and we'll certainly add more along the way, especially if we hear feedbacks from our site visitors.
