I traveled by train once, it was nice.

I love travelling by train because you don't have to drive and you can read or watch the landscape. The trains can be late but luckily they seldom are cancelled.

I have never traveled in train, but I have the hope to travel in train sometime, I'm not afraid to travel, I think that it will be a really nice experience.

Best Regards

I would like to travel by train more frequentelly. we don't have several options of train station in my country because there are a lot of buses .

Where are the others exercises of this skill?

Hi Wendy,

This page has all the exercises that we created to accompany this video. There are some other videos at the B1 level on LearnEnglish Teens if you'd like to get more practice in different situations.

All the best,

Dear Mr. Kirk,

Best Regards,
Thu Hong

Hi Thu Hong,

For now, I'm afraid there's only this one video at the B1 level on LearnEnglish, though we do plan to have more. The good news is that you can see several more videos at this level on this LearnEnglish Teens page.

There are also lots of other audio and video resources in our Listening section which you could use to help improve your English listening and even speaking. You might also find it useful to read our tips on improving your speaking and vocabulary on our Frequently asked questions page.

I hope this helps you. Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I like travelling by train.once, when i reach the platform ,the train started moving.anyway i want to get in to the train,i ran along with train got on a/c compartment instead of sleeper compartment....

I like travelling by plane more it is faster and comfortable on my opinion.
I had a jorney by train only once,and sat down in another train. This train was going to my direct,almost this time.But it was express train.Thus i mixed up the trains! I suspected that something wrong becouse my train was so comfortale,and i bought cheap ticket. Luckily i asked a passenger about train t,then i realized that was not my train. I got off the train on the next station and waited of necessary train.
