Lesson Transcript

In the previous lesson, we learned how to buy a ticket to get on the subway or train in the States. In this lesson we'll talk about how to ask for possible special discounts if they have any.
Large cities may have discounted tickets for visitors. They may be day passes for a certain price, which lets you ride the rails and perhaps other forms of public transportation for a flat fee.
You may ask something along the lines of do you have any day passes? Once again, the question is do you have any day passes? Do you have is the question starter. Any is asking if such tickets exist, and day passes will be the kind of pass. Do you have any day passes?
Now, you might want to ask for the price of a day pass, because if you don't plan to do a lot of moving around that day, buying regular tickets may be cheaper. You can ask by saying, how much is the day pass? This is similar to a question we learned in a previous lesson. However, what you really want to know is whether or not it's worth your money. So you can ask how many rides is it worth? How many asks for the number. Rides means the train ride itself, and is it worth asks for the value of the ticket. So, once again that's how many rides is it worth?
If you want to ask whether or not they have any other kinds of tickets, for example, a discount for children or for people over a certain age, you can ask this question. What's the price for _____? and place the category at the end. Say for example you're travelling with a baby. You can say, what's the price for a baby? Once again, that's what's the price for a baby? Sometimes, babies are free, and there's a discount for elderly people. Sometimes, it's just all the same.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- Do you have any day passes?
- How many rides is it worth?
- What's the price for _____?
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!

Hello Marco,


Thank you for your message.


In the sentence you asked about "She said she would text me...she had time to get together." The ellipsis here would suggest the word 'if.' This is suggested depending on something that will occur in the future. For example, she might be waiting to see if she has to work.


I hope this is helpful to you! ๐Ÿ˜„Please feel free to shoot through any questions you have throughout your studies.


Kindly,

ร‰va

I would like to make a question about the video from You tube: Learn English 24/7 with English Class 101 TV They say:

She said She would text me โ€ฆ.. She had time to get together, Well in this sentence they ask what is better to use in ellipsis: when or if, well I think the answer is IF, but my doubt is the verb "HAD" used after ellipsis(the second sentence) why the verb is used in the past tense? in my opiniรณn this must be in the present tense, that is: HAVE, Can you explain please?, thank you.

Hello Bao,


Thank you for posting.


How many rides is it worth, means how many times can she use the day pass before she can no longer use it.


Let us know if you have any questions.


Cheers,

Hi Sergii,


The word "worth" isn't a verb, so it doesn't change tense into "worthed" or "worthing", for example. In the example you gave it is an adjective.


I hope that helps!

Could you explain, why "...is it worth" and not "...is it worthed", please?
