Last year i traveled very often in my country and abroud. I travel ususlly by bus and by car. This year because we have a carrantine for COVID 19 i don't travel anywhere.

In my country I usually travel by train, because In my opinion it’s a safe transport. At the moment, I’m living in Ireland and I travel to my country by airplane about once a year.

I have never travled by plan or train, I would like to.

Four month age I was In brighton It was no underground In brighton but we had train to travel to london It was a very nice the train and about the underground In london oh It was more of the people but It’s good to transform In london and It was cheaper than the taxi

Thanks .

I don’t rarely take a trip by train or plane.
I only used by express or motor bike.
But i remember that i went to Singapore by plane since 2018.It is fantastic. That is my very first time taking trip by plane.

I don't know the exact translation of : "the rear carriage"
Tank you

Hello BRIGITTE49124,

Trains are made up of a number of carriages. The rear carriage is the last one – the one at the back.

The next train to arrive at Platform 2 is the 12.20 to Bristol Temple Meads, ""calling at Reading,"""

what does this sentence mean????

Hello Parisa

In the context of travelling by train, 'to call at' means 'to stop in'. 'to call' can mean 'to visit' -- see the sixth entry (in purple) in the Cambridge Dictionary entry. 

All the best

I often travel by train because it is closer than plane.
