Lesson Transcript

Riding the Rails, Part 3
We’ve already learned how to buy a train ticket, but what if you want to choose a particular seat? In this lesson, we’ll learn how to make special seat requests.
Usually you’ll be given two choices of seat: window or aisle.
A window seat is good if you want to enjoy the view, while an aisle seat is more convenient if you want to walk around a bit during your journey.
So let’s imagine that you want to buy a ticket, and that you want to sit on the aisle. You can say: “An aisle seat to the city, please.” To break it down, ‘an aisle seat’ is what you want, and ‘to the city’ is where you want to go. And don’t forget the all-important ‘please’ at the end.
“An aisle seat to the city, please.”
If you want a window seat, then the structure is the same. All you have to do is replace ‘aisle’ with ‘window’. “A window seat to the city, please.”
Another option you might have when buying a ticket is ‘standard’ or ‘first class’. ‘Standard’ is the basic, and therefore the cheapest type of seat, whilst ‘first class’ is more expensive, but also more comfortable.
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!
- An aisle seat to the city, please
- A window seat to the city, please


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