Record yourself

Now you can record yourself talking about your journey to work or school. Think about what you would like to say.

  • Is your journey the same every day?
  • Is it better at different times?
  • Do you always go the same way?

Try to use some of the new words and phrases you have learnt.

You can use your mobile phone to record yourself speaking. If you think you could improve, you can record yourself again.


Hello, what’s your journey to work like? How do you go to work? I live in north west London and work in central London so it takes me about an hour to go to work.

First I walk to the tube station and take the train. I change trains at Euston. I change from the Northern Line to the Victoria Line and I get off at Victoria and walk to the college where I work. In the morning I set off quite early so the trains aren’t crowded and I can usually sit down, but in the evening the trains are very crowded and everybody’s squashed together and in the summer it’s really terrible.
