Read the text, learn the vocabulary and discuss



People like travelling. That’s why there are so many means of transportation. People want to see the world, to rest, to have new impressions- in other words they travel for pleasure or on business. If people travel out of the city, they can choose between going by coach, by train, by plane (by air), by ship (by sea) and hiking. Each of these means has its advantages and disadvantages.

International traveling by coach is rather convenient and cheap. You can take food with you or buy it at the stops. There are some modern conveniences in the coaches such as toilets and TVs. But sleeping in an armchair can cause problems especially to those who are car-sick.

Traveling by train is more convenient, because you can sleep well and it’s not expensive. People can choose between a carriage with sitting places and a carriage with berths (upperand lowerberths). There are carriages with four-berth compartments and two-berth compartments. Some trains are not fast they are slow and stop very often.

Travelling by plane is an exciting experience, very convenient and fast for those who are not airsick. Travelling by plane is rather expensive though people can choose between economic class, business class and deluxe class. The price depends on the food served and the number of people around. There are usually sections for smokers and non-smokers. People can also choose an aisle seat or a window seat if they are available (not booked) at the moment.

Travelling by ship is an unforgettable experience. It’s a great chance to see marvelous landscapes and seascapes. Besides, the dawns and sunsets in the open ocean are terrific. There are different types of ships to go by – cruisers, yachts and liners fitted up with all modern conveniences and entertainment facilities. The disadvantages are the cost of the ticket, the storms and the sea-sickness.

Hiking is the healthiest way of spending holidays. People usually live in tents, do the cooking on the fire, fish and have a rest in the open air. This way of traveling is very exotic but not for everyone, because you can’t find any modern conveniences and entertainment facilities.
