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... ;)

Train, taxi, car, bus, bike, motorbike, etc.. In short, all kinds of transport or at least all those that I know so far. People here like cycling a lot, so I noticed that the bike is quite usual as a mean of transport in this city.

The city I am living in has all kinds of transport (motorbike, bike, plane, van, ship, boat, scooter, train, bus, lorry,...) I usually use my own scooter, the place I live has a heavy traffic and I think only scooter or motorbike is easy to move in. And I really love it, it helps me move in the alley and move fast,....

My favourite is to walk. But when I have to go in Paris from my city I have to take subway which is between the train and the metro. I don't really like it but it is the best way to go in a near city because it's fast. There a lot of other kinds of transport like public bus, bicycles, motorbikes, cars and vans but I have no one. I don't like to travel by plane although I have done it a lot because you have no choice sometimes. I prefer train for example.

Actually I have most kinds of transport mentioned without ship, because I don't have the sea in neighbourhood. I usually use the most my bike and car.

In the city were I live we have public transport like buses and taxis, but we don't have trains, also we have aeroplanes, trucks, vans, motorbikes(lots) and bikes. Some people have boats but is not very common in this city. I use buses most frecuently to get to work and go around the city, and my bike to go around my neighborhood.
