My favourite transport is my car! I use it when i have to travel around my beautiful country.Usually i go to work by feet or by my bike.
there isnt any special form of transport that tourists use in my country, usually they travel by coach.
I have never ride on the big red buses in London but i wish to ride soon.

I like online sales, when you can get a good discount. I live in Moscow region. In our town we use the buses or mini-buses to get somewere or we use own car. We go to Moscow by train - it's much faster then by car about traffic james. In Moscow we use underground.

I like to travel by train because it is more comfortable and I can see side views openly. Moreover, I can buy local products.Then I want to go for a pee frequently. I usually go my office by walking.In doing so I have done good exercise. In our country express buses are mostly used for highway traveling. I want to ride the Routemaster buses as Tess. But in our country, there are not have these buses Routemaster bus and Bandy buses. So thank you for knowledge of transports at London.

I usually get to work on underground. The net of underground is very much i n our city. And i will not care about the traffic jam when i get on the underground. But my favourite
transport is bicycle. In our country people use to ride a bicycle to go work 15 years ago. With the development of the country, private cars become the main transport. The city has becoming more crowded and air pollution becoming heavy. The typical transport for the tourist is tricycle. It's just like bicycle with three wheels. People like to sit on the tricycle to look around every HUTONG. Hutong is the famous scene in Beijing.
dear teacher, could please correct the mistake in the paragraph i have written

Hello zhuangxiaoming,

Thanks very much for your contribution! I'm afraid we are too small a team to be able to correct our users' writing, but I can say that I understood your text with no problems. Well, I had to look up 'hutong', which are called 'narrow streets' or 'alleys' and the neighbourhoods they are found in in English, but that was the only thing. If you ever have a specific question about a specific sentence, feel free to ask us.

Please keep up the good work -- we hope to see more of you!

All the best,
Kirk

dear teacher, I'm so happy to learn the preposition"on ,in". Get on/off the bus , train and plane. Get in/out the taxi, car. I do remembered them this time, thank you!

Hello everyone,

I'm very excited because It's my first comment in this site. So glad to meet y'all.

In Turkey, we can use various vehicle to get somewhere. Especially, buses and underground be used for local transportation in big cities. If you want to travel inter-city, you have four alternative transportation facilty; that is highway, railway, airway and finally seaway.
In Ankara, my favorite vehicle is underground due to widespread transportation network. It can be reached where you want to go.

There are many types of transportations used to go to work or school in my country such as car, bus, taxi, motorcycle and bike. During these motorcycle is the most popular. Personally I go to work by motorcycle too. Buses are the next most used in my country, they are used widely by students because of cheap fare. I love red Double-decker buses in London. I never see them in real life but only on television. I wish someday I could visit London and traveled around city on a red double-decker bus.

Hi everyone!
In Italy (I live in Milan) I usually use the underground or the car.
But when I was in london, I enjoyed very much to get on the buses, especially the red double-decker buses. They're very originals and they allows to see aorund and to enjoy the panorama.
Next time I will get a routemaster: I never travelled on it.

In my country we have a various ways of travel to get to work, bus, subway or metro, taxi, bicycle, motorcycle and sometimes by foot if your work isn't far away from home. Personally I travel by motorcycle and for me is the best way you can move yourself through the city since there is lots of traffic and you can be stuck at least one hour and a half in your car or even in the metro. I have to go through the city from north to south and for me is better going by motorcycle, in addition, you can skip the traffic, you don't get stressed and don't spend much money in gasoline. XD
