The kinds of transport we have where I live are taxi, van, bus, and train. I don't normally use any kinds of transport because I have my own car, but if I had to, It would be a taxi, a metro, or a train.

Where I live, people often use most of these transports to move.
I usually use my bike to go around my house and rent a motorbike to go farther. I use the bus to go to another province or city.

Hello admins, I think the picture of a boat should be a yacht.... Please tell me if there's a difference. :)

Hello Rafaela1,

All yachts are boats, but not all boats are yachts. The word 'boat' is very general and can be used to refer to almost any kind of vehicle people get into that floats on water. A yacht is usually a fairly large and luxurious vessel that is used primarily for luxurious entertainment.

Personally, I wouldn't call the boat in the image on this page a yacht -- it looks a little small and doesn't appear to be luxurious.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

Kirk

Thank you Kirk, I understand. Maybe the difference of what to call boats or yachts stems from a cultural difference. In Cambodia, it's a definitely a yacht, but maybe people in Spain will call it a boat. Interesting... ;)

I don't want to use a boat like that because I easily get seasick! :(

My city is small and its population a few, so it has buses, bikes, motorbikes, cars, taxi and vans. I had a motorbike but know I haven't one.
