Hello everyone
The first thing that I need to say is that this practice is very very amazing, because there are a lot of things to which we can practice and share with everybody..Thanks for all team who work here.. English is so difficult for me, but I hope to learn very well. My Favorite transport is car, but i would like to use train some day, I have never used this before.. In my country there are not train and I have never used train in other country. I would like to get on a train!

There are many transportations in my country like bus, car, motorbike or bicycle. However, the motorbike is used more commonly than other vehicles. Of course, I go to the uni by motorbike too. It easily moves on the small street and traffic jams at peak hours are bad. Nowadays, in Vietnam, there are some red double-deckers buses in Hanoi or Danang. Those buses are being tested before they put into use.

I live in a small town Lisichansk, Ukraine. I always go to my university on a bus. And most of the students use the same kind of transport and only small part of the students get to university in a own car. Most of citizens use the bus because people have no money to buy own car. But I hope that one day I'll have my own car. I think that the own car is more comfortable and faster than the bus because it's went veery slowly to collet more passengers.

I'm 14 so I don't use transport to get to work. The only thing I would need transport for is to get to school, but I don't as I live near my highschool and I get there by foot every morning. Eventhough I don't use it, many other people of my country (Spain) do, and the most common ways of transports are cars, buses, the underground and bicycles. We have traffic jams here too, especially during the morningor the afternoon, when everybody gets out of work.

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
