Hello Liana

The video is near the top of the page, between the Preparation task and the Transcript. If you can't see it, I would recommend trying a different web browser or different device to see if you can see it there. I have checked it and there doesn't appear to be any problem on our end.

All the best

Yes, I do love to ride train transportation. But here in our country train are so crowded especially during the rush hour.

Yes I like travelling by train. I have had a problem once the train arrived with 2 hours late. It was awful. My parents were afraid that something wrong happened.

I often travel by train because it's less tiring ; I can read in the train or listen to the radio
I think it's more ecological but it's quiet expansive
In France the train are often late and it could be a problem when we have a date

No, it is not applicable in our region

yes i like traveling by train very much

I like travel by train. I had a problem once in Paris because I purchased a weekly card but forget past my photograph, one officer asking to me about the card and put me a penalty fee of €35. It was not nice but, I understand that is important because are the rules of the city.
