I like traveling by train. I use trains in our country. They are very great!
Train are considered a good choice for travelling long distance. Train is one of the most common means of transport in our country. It is used to transportation goods and people. It is not only comfortable but also quite an economical option when it comes to long distance journeys.

Especially Talgo, I like it too

Actually, I haven't bee by train.

Thank you so much

I had problem when I travel by train. I bought student ticket but I don't have my school ID. Conductor wanted check my ticket and my ID. It was not nice conversation because she wanted give me a ticket.

Yo, i didnt have any problems, bye

I like travel by train,but bullet train is so expensive compare to plane.
That's why I choose plane.

Yes, I love it, but in my country we don´t have trains, but i had travel in many country where are a lot of them, and always when I am in other place I traveled by train

GREAT JOB!!! We need a million more of these real life situation videos for my students!

Hello fafotoide
Thanks for letting us know this was useful! I wanted to let you know that you can find a few more videos like this one on LearnEnglish Teens ( and that we do plan to create more, though I'm afraid it will take quite some time before they are ready.
All the best
