Hi there!

It's my first comment here. I enjoy a lot this website, it's very useful for people who are learning english (that's my case).
About this episode, here in Brazil there are buses, cars, motorcycles, bicycles and some places we use the ferry to get at the work, to crossing the ocean from a city to another one, usually is a short way, about 15 minutes.

Hello everyone, I am from Venezuela. This is my first post here. I am glad to find this web page to improve my English. I have studied English in american institute in my country, but now I want to keep practicing my English skills with some pages on internet. So I usually get to work by car. I used to get to work by bus and subway but I saved some money and I could afford my own car. However, In my country, it is too expensive to maintain in good condition. We do not have some special way to transport tourists, but I recommend if you come here, you should take the subway or if you can afford it, renting a car is a good idea. I have never been in London, but I wish I could be there someday..

hello everyone, I'm Hieu from Hai Phong city in Viet Nam. My favorite transport is bicycle because it is easy to move, make you more healthy and it is safe for the environment. Besides, I like the feelings of ride a bike slowly, watch everything pass the road, esp when you're sad.

Hi! Could you explain the part of a sentence "there are plenty more episodes to come". I know what means every word, but I don't understand meaning (sense) of the phrase, especially "episodes to come". Noun + infinitive?
Thanks a million!

Hello Daria,

Some nouns can be followed by some infinitives in this way, but there's no easy way to learn them – they are best learned on a case-by-case basis, i.e. as you find them. 'episodes to come' means that there will be episodes in the future – the idea is that the future 'is coming'. So all together, this phrase is inviting you to keep listening to Elementary Podcasts, because a new one is going to be released every week until February 2016. Episode 12 is coming on 20 October!

All the best,

Hi everyone. There are buses, taxis, subway, cars and a lot of motorcycles in my Country. I have a car and I usually transport me in it. Here the gas service is very cheap, and very much people have cars. I generates a terrible traffic in some hours, but always is most confortable to transport you in your car.

My favorite transport is my car! I like driving my car very much
Edward

thanks
