I remember that I took a wrong seat at a table for four, staying with unknown 3 members of a family! Oh, it was so embarassing!!

yes I absolutely adore travelling by train.

Yes, I like traveling by train. And I travel lot by train for work and vacation. I did not often have a serious problem by taking a train. But in fact I really missed a plane this year on my way back home from a vacation trip. This was very astressful expierience I do not want to go through again.

i love this english skill test and i think it give me a good knowledge about english subject..thank you to LearnEnglish

Hi, I agree with you and do also like active speaking lessons like this. It feels like a real Dialoge.

different places and different culture can make someone become more independent. I want to travel to many places and learn more about people so that i don't have any regrets in the future.

Yes I love travelling by train because I like to walk. I have a problem with my journey when I lost my ticket and I need to pay a fine

such an interesting task, and the dialogue is a little bit tricky but yet i still can answer all of the questions :)

Theres a time when I used train and out of nowhere make a friend with a strangers. Most importantly we still contact each other regardless how far we are. Nonetheless, the person above me is potato.

First of all , from my opinion , i doesn’t like to travelling anywhere with train because it has some consequences due to travel with train which is delay of the schedule such as when i took a ticket on 8.00 p.m , the train came at the platform on 9.00 p.m so i must waited for an our’s for it . Next , i don’t like travelling with train because it was crowded and sometimes i don’t get a seat to sit and i have to stand until i reach the destination . And the last reason is the ticket for the train always finished early , thats all from my opinion . Thank you :)
