Synonyms of "International" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between International shipping and International transportation ?
A:

International shipping = when something is taken from one part of the world and is transported across a sea/ocean to get to its destination.

International transportation = something is taken across countries. It doesn't specify the method of transportation (e.g. ship, train, car, bike, van, lorry etc.)

So international shipping is a type of international transportation but shipping isn't the only possible method of transportation.

Hope this makes sense :)


(inter = between
national = nations/counties

(international = between countries)

trans= across
portation = carried

transportation = carried across)

Translations of "International"

Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? I major in International Communications Studies/My major is International Communications Studies
A: You would simply say ‘I studied International Communications Studies at e.g Bristol University’ or ‘I got my degree in International Communications Studies from Bristol University’. If you want to be more formal you could say ‘I read International Communications Studies at Bristol University’. If you ‘majored’ in two subjects, it would be referred to as a ‘joint degree’ or a ‘joint honours degree’. If you study a subject that has a ‘with’ in the title e.g. Criminology with a Psychology then this means that the Criminology is the major part of the degree and Psychology the minor part.
However, if you did express it as I ‘majored’ in International Communications Studies everyone would understand anyway.
