THATS ENGLISH BASICO 1

Hello boys and girls, how are you? Here is a task for you:
What questions would you ask to :

1) Know the timetable for a train to Manchester
2) Know where to leave your luggage in the station while you have a coffee
3) Get a ticket on a train where you can sleep while you travel
4) Get a ticket to go to London (coming back the same day)
5) Ask about trains to Edinburgh in the morning

Try not to use the book and to just remember the structures and vocabulary

Hi Monica.
It is so tantalizing that I cannot help giving my point of view.

1) Know the timetable for a train to Manchester

Do not bother to ask any one, nobody will answer you because there is not a place to ask. You have to inform yourself by looking at the screens and you have to buy your ticker to a machine.

2) Know where to leave your luggage in the station while you have a coffee.

Do not leave your luggage unattended. It will be disposed or stolen.

3) Get a ticket on a train where you can sleep while you travel

Sleeping on a train! Forget it, they are very uncomfortable, anyway if you fell slept you will wake up without wallet.

4) Get a ticket to go to London (coming back the same day)

Such a waste of time! You cannot going to London and return in the same day if you want to see something.

5) Ask about trains to Edinburgh in the morning.

You’d better go at night or even in the evening, in the morning it is very expensive.

Monica, if you do not like me giving advice to the Spanish tourists feel free to delete, I won’t be upset.

hi Elena!
nice work! only two corrections:
"are there any TRAINS" (PLURAL)
and "what time does the train arrive IN Edinburgh"(preposition)
Warton, thanks for the advice, it's always useful to know these things ;-)
