I always use the train as my daily transportation and it is better than the other public transportation. Trains are faster than the other vehicles so i like to travel by it.

I use the train sometimes, but most of the time i use a car or taxi. My favorite type of public transport is the train,but I don't like travelling in a plane because it's very boring and makes me tired too.

I'm bored because I'm not good listening, I've not listened pecfectly sentences all in lesson. So, I must listen more carefully. I took 40 minutes for me to listen " Trains and travel" specially check your understanding in question and answer part. I feel that while I'm listening this lesson, I've not understood the whole of this " Trains and travel" but I've understood about 40%. Why? I agree that in this lesson has some vocabulary words. So, I need some advices listening? Can you help me?

Hi Huyenthanh :)
Try to spend a little time each day listening to English. It can be anything - activities on our website, TV shows, radio, music, Youtube videos - everything will help! And do have a look at our Listening Skills section too ... I hope they help!

I rarely travel by train, because I don't like it very much. I prefere travelling by bus, car or plane. I love planes. When I was a child, I'm used to be scared of them! I overcame this fear when I went to London!
