Language level

Intermediate: B1


When I got on a train somewhere in Europe, the toilet was large. Wow....
Perhaps I didn't lock the door tightly and when the train banked slightly, the sliding door started to open!! Oops!!
I rapidly approached the door to handle!
It was just before/after------- I leave the rest of the story up to your imagination!!

I only prefer the train for long trips in my country; otherwise I like to use my car. Sometimes the trains are delayed or it happens that the bathrooms are not very cleaned.

Why there are not more videos abut speaking in this page?

For now we are very busy producing lots of new pages in our Listening, Reading and Writing sections, but we do plan to add more Speaking videos at some point. In the meantime, you can find a few more videos at this level on our sister site LearnEnglish Teens.

I have never travelled by train. I´d like to travel on it some day.

I hate commuting by subway in Japan. Especially when some accidents happen. It's insanely crowded and I thought I might my bones broken.

Hello Lianna

I'm sorry it's still not working for you. Could you please tell us what browser version you are using? I would recommend updating the browser to the most recent version possible, if you haven't already done that. I'd also recommend trying a different device as a test to see if it works there.
