Hi Akiko

Where are you? I’m at the station waiting for you. Are you on the train? What time does it arrive? I’ll wait for you here at the station.

See you soon

Hi Kim

I’m on the train, but it’s late! It arrives at 17:30. Don’t wait for me at the station. I’ll get a bus to your house. What’s the bus number?

See you later

Yes, we have trains in our city and we also have buses and steamboats but I usually use metro because I think it's the fastest one in my city.

I use a train because it is nice travelling. There are lots of interesting people and I can speak with them.

Hi egp2eamp,
Did you mean to say 'ship' instead of 'sheep'? Check the words in the online dictionary on the right-hand-side of this page. ;)
