I don't like traveling by train and yes I had some problems when I traveled by trains... for example, about 10 years ago, when I had train journey the train was stopped for few hours becouse someone made suicide on railway... or another example I buy ticket to the travel for my last money, but don't buy ticket to place in the train (I don't know I should buy it) and almost I must leaved the train before my destination. Thats all (And now I have request for you. Maybe someone will by able to amend my grammar error becouse I'm begining lern writing.) Thanks for the mountain (thats was a joke)

Hello tmzch
Thanks for explaining your experiences here; I'm sure many people have had similar things happen to them on the train (I have).
I'm afraid we don't correct users' written texts, but if you have a question about a specific phrase or sentence, we'd be happy to help.
All the best

I don't like seething mass of people in a busy station....


Trains are not so popular in my country. So when I find a chance to get a train, I sure don't miss it.

I like traveling by train. I have never had problems with this kind of transport. I used trains in Moscow. It is great!

Yes I do. When I was a child , I used to travel by train. Because My father worked as a civil servant at the railway company that belonged to goverment. But I prefer travelling by plane or car.

yes i do. Of all the given choice in the transports, the train is my favorite one. mostly i go by train to any long distance, as the distance between our cities is not too far, the train is the best option.

Thank you to those who have worked on these exercises. I watched the video and tried the exercises in my notes, and I did it. These exercises have greatly helped me to gather my vocabulary and learn how to read words. He especially liked the tests. Thank you so much for once!

I love it, I don't care about the problems ...
