Yes. I do. No, not really at all.

Unfortunately the train is offered in my country for touristic purposes. Bogota has not a train, which are able to transport huge quantity of people. There is a bus public transport instead of trains. Nevertheless, I do not enjoy travelling by bus to work or back home.

I really like "Britishcouncil" course. It is properly designed for foreign learners. Thank you!

I appreciate the "BritishCouncil" Course too, i suggest to the leader and member team of "BrithishCouncil-LearningEnglish" is that to share update lesson and a lot lesson, that we use more and more from this site,

hope all of you be fine

Yes, I like travelling by train because I can get sense of the country.If I drive somewhere, you can hardly pay any attention to your surroundings but if you choose to travel by train, you just have to sit,relax and admire the view from your comfortable sit.I think the problems that i had in my journey is getting sunburn.

I dont understand how can i use this web to get a certificat from britch council

Hello Ragia Abdelwahed Abou

Do you mean the IELTS test? The IELTS is an internationally-recognised certification of your level of English. You can find more information at TakeIELTS, where you'll also find some free preparation materials. We also have a course at FutureLearn.

Here on LearnEnglish, we don't offer a certificate. Instead, what we have is a range of materials you can use to improve your level. Please let us know if we can help you with anything more specific.

All the best

I remember that I took a wrong seat at a table for four, staying with unknown 3 members of a family! Oh, it was so embarassing!!

yes I absolutely adore travelling by train.
