Hello evrybody
I 've just had twice trian travel. which on the second travel, the train destroyed nearing to destination , duo to another Locomotive came and drag our train to station.

Honestly, I’ve never traveled by train yet. I often travel with my motorbike or sometimes I use bus to travel. However, I’d like to try to travel by train once. I guess it will be really exciting to enjoy the landscape from the window of the train.

I like traveling to Manhattan by train because is very fast and comfortable

Yes one time when time I was traveling to Aleppo the train damaged and we stayed about one hour until the other train came and set up then continue our trip.

Is there only one video at B1 LEVEL?

Hello tenedos,

There are quite a few videos at that level. Take a look at the General English section using the tab at the top of the page and visit the various sections. Many of them are video based and they reference their level in the introduction. For example, the Video Zone section is aimed at B2 and C1, while the How to... series and Word on the Street are aimed at B1.

I enjoy travelling by train. I haven't had any problems on my journey so far.

I had never tried... but it sounds great to do... let me note in my agenda ;))

I like travelling by train, essentially for three reasons: one: you have a lot of time to do what you want to, you can read a book, do your work, new trains have also free wi fiii, so youn can go on internet; two: you can take a rest, can sleep; three: you can enjoy your journey just looking out of the window and watching the landscape.

Idon't like it so much
