What is correct: We can go on the train or by train? Thank.

Hello MaryGio,

To talk about travel we use 'go by' or 'take':

We can go by train.

We can take a train / We can take the train [there is no difference in most contexts]

Ok, but in Task 2 question 2 says: We can go on the train. Is it wrong?

Hi MaryGio,

It's better to say 'We can go by train' if you're describing which kind of transport you'll use.

I'm sorry the exercise confused you and I've made a note so that I fix both Task 2 and Task 3 to say 'go by train' when I have a chance to.

Thanks very much for telling us about this.

Best wishes,

I want to Hong Kong to meet my best friend.
He is doing his PhD at that.

Well, I avoid the hordes of tourists place. I prefer to get away from it all and love to go somewhere off the beaten track. Last year I had a holiday of a lifetime to the West in Vietnam. It was a picturesque village with a breathtaking view.

Last time we don't have any holidays. However, we're saving money for our trip to Europe.

I like to go to natural places like mountains and beaches.

I like to go to the countryside in holidays. I like to sit in quiet place and enjoy the weather and listen to sounds of nature.

When I go on holiday, I go to the mountains of the Alps. I like walking a lot.
