It is an interesting video in order to show a real situation in the public transport.
Nevertheless in my opinion, the commuter would show more exciting

I wanted to write should

I really can't understand why you have to put subtitles on the dialogue. We then miss the important opportunity to practice the most important skill, listening. Modern pedagogies stress that we should always listen first, without subtitles and try to get the most we can, before going to transcripts. Thank you

Hello nelsonfranca,

Modern methodology is rather more flexible than that. Subtitles can be a very useful tool in some situations.

Most of our videos do not have subtitles and if you prefer not to see the text then you will have many videos to choose from. I hope you find them helpful.

Hello englishExercice,

I'm sorry for the inconvenience! Are you still seeing a connection error? I'm able to see the video with no problems and everything else on the page is working now. 

If you're still not able to view the video, please tell us what browser version you are using and what time it is so that we can investigate further.

Hi englishExercice,

I understand that you can see the video now -- is that right? I hope so, but if not, please let me know and I'll see what I can find out.

It would also be a good idea to try different browsers and/or devices to see if it works there.

I don't like traveling by my city's trains, because sometimes that's a filthy places to seat on, and also it takes much long time.
