Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Riding the Rails, Part 2
In the previous lesson we learned how to buy a London Underground or train ticket in the UK. In this lesson, we’ll find out how to ask for special discounts.
Large cities may have discount travel passes for visitors. The most common of these is a day pass that allows you to ride the train, and perhaps other forms of transport, for a flat fee.
SURVIVAL PHRASES
To find out if this option is available, you can say: “Do you have any day passes?” So, ‘do you have’ is the question starter, ‘any’ is asking if such tickets exist, and ‘day passes’ is the type of ticket.
“Do you have any day passes?”
A day pass is usually the cheapest option if you plan to travel a lot during one day. If you don’t plan to move around much, then buying regular tickets might be cheaper. To check the price of a special pass, you can ask: “How much is the day pass?” This is similar to a question we learned in a previous lesson.
However, in this situation, what you really want to know is whether the pass is worth the money. So you can ask: “How many rides is it worth?” The question starter ‘how many’ asks for the number, ‘rides’ means the train ride, and ‘is it worth’ is to find out the value of the ticket.
“How many rides is it worth?”
If you want to find out about other tickets, such as discounts for children or people over a certain age, you can ask: “What’s the price for…?” At the end, you can add the category, such as ‘children’.
So, for example, if you’re travelling with a baby, you can say: “What’s the price for a baby?” Sometimes babies and young children under a certain age can travel for free. Other common discounts are for students and elderly people.
Okay, to close out this lesson we’d like you to practice what you’ve just learned. I’ll provide you with the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So good luck!
- Do you have any day passes?
- How many rides is it worth?
- What’s the price for…?

Outro

Alright! That’s going to do it for this lesson. Bye!

Hi tafali,


Thank you for posting.


It seems the Lesson Notes PDF works fine with this lesson.
