Not really.
I have never had a problem on the train so far.

thank you very much. please add more conversation videos like this. i enjoyed a lot.

I would like to travel by train, because you can watch the nature while traveling. Also you can sleep on the bed. On the other hand train isnot convenient if someone wants to move.

I like the course but i can´t change for the next page. it´s all the same exercises.

Hello Catarina

Most of our website is not really so much a course as it is a library, so, unless it is a series like Big City Small World, you can use the pages in whatever order you'd like to. It's probably best to use pages at your level -- so, for example, you might want to search for other pages in Skills at the B2 level. 

All the best

I´m Catarina and i´m from Lisboa, Portugal. When i went to Rome, Italy, last year i had a dinner at a typical restaurant in the Trasteveri neighborhood. I ate so, so, so badly that i thought don´t pay for my meal. I was very disappointed and i said to the employee. Well, Rome it´s a very, very beautiful city but i didn´t like the italian food very much.

I like travelling by train.
I had a problem with my journey about my train 2 years ago. I had get on the train in Viyana. I was going to Budapest. 2 hours later the train has stopped and they said that train can not go and you get off and after get on the other one which stay at the other platform. At that time I have felt fear because weather was so dark. But after that we had arrived at Budapest withouth problem.

I am a new student and I am very happy to join this group. I must study English because my daughter live in Australia with her Australian husband and their fabulous children, my grandchildren , whom I love more than my life.
About the lesson I think it’s very clever like, normally, are clever all the British Council lessons. I admire you.

Actually no, i prefer travelling on a plane more than a train, because it is way faster. And me and my family have been threw the same problem before .We missed our flight. And unfortunately ,there was not another flight on that day that was going to Rome. So, we ended up buying another plane ticket for another day .

hello can you just see if my punctuation marks are in the right place

Hello yoyoraw

I would recommend removing the comma after 'So' in the last sentence. Otherwise, the punctuation looks good, though remember that the first person personal pronoun is capitalised ('I' not 'i').
