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
The LearnEnglish Team

In the video Makayla says :" What time does it get to Manchester? What platform is it from?"
Is it correct to say also : " What time does it arrive to Manchester? What plateforme does it leave from?"

I just love to travel by plane.This is great, plus it's safer than sea and land vehicle.
