Note: When I "complain" in this video, I'm not really being serious. I am fully aware that transport services are decent in Australia. Learn train and travel vocabulary, and practise your listening skills! In this video I show you some of my recent trip to Sydney. I've included very specific train- and travel-related vocabulary, as well as some other idioms. Vocabulary list: at sparrow's fart at the crack of dawn cheap/stingy (train) station a shock to the system the big smoke buffet car ticket luggage rack reading light emergency exit carriage/car aisle aisle seat window seat crew (train) tracks For more English lessons, visit my channel, English with Max.

I never knew Hornsby was 25 minutes from central
English with Max (7 months ago)
It's probably closer to half an hour, but it's definitely faster on that train than on the local city trains.

"stingy" is it a characteristic of a person?
English with Max (10 months ago)
Yes. "Cheap" can be a characteristic of an item (or anything you buy) meaning inexpensive, or it can be used for a person who is tight/stingy with money. "Stingy" can only be used for people.
Juan das Neves Soares (10 months ago)
Don't you use "miles" in Australia?
Juan das Neves Soares (10 months ago)
English with Max Nice! In Brazil are "kilometres" too.
English with Max (10 months ago)
Nope. But they use "miles" in the UK and the US ;).

Hello Max...would you tell me how can I understand Australian English....I am from India.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Hello! It's just a question of listening practice. You can watch Australian movies or TV shows. You can also listen to the ABC: http://www.abc.net.au/

Thank you, Max, for this very informative and enjoyable video. You mentioned several very useful expressions for conventional conversation. I have already watched this lesson three times and made notes in my notebook. I found out when I would go back to my hand-writing notes in the future I am able to imagine your video and it is easier to learn the new vocabulary, collocations and some phrases. You do do a good job! (pls correct)
1953emo (1 year ago)
Thank you very much, Max, for your kind approach.
English with Max (1 year ago)
I'm glad you liked it! Corrections: I would say: *everyday conversation ("conventional" isn't incorrect, but it feels more natural to say "everyday" here) *I realised that when I go back to my hand-written notes in the future... Your English is really very good!

Hi Max I like your pronounce and sound. thank you for you help me to learning english better and better. I am from Thailand. Really i want to progress and it is the second languge for me. i will try again. sometime i surrender it so hard. thanks
English with Max (1 year ago)
Hi! Thank you for your comment! Don't worry. Learning a language is hard. Sometimes you feel like you're not making any progress, and sometimes you can feel like you're going backwards. But don't give up! You'll see progress over time :)
Hi Max. It was a nice trip, wasn't it? Did you have a good time in Sydney? I'm waiting for your next video. (Please correct, thanks)
I enjoy watching your video lessons. Thanks.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Nothing to correct :). It was a nice stay in Sydney, yes :). I haven't been able to make videos lately :(, but I plan to start again next month!

Thanks for telling us how it's basically a train trip in Australia! I thought that in this country there would be a sophisticated system of public transport to connect cities, as in some countries of Western Europe, such as Spain, France, Austria and others, where they offer high-speed vehicles.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Most of our roads and air travel are decent, but our train system is not like it is in most European countries, or in Asian countries like Japan.
Manuel hernandez (1 year ago)
OMG. are from Australia? I didn't recognize your accent. I thought you were from England Jaja that why you use some different words and have soft toys of Australian animals! xD
English with Max (1 year ago)
Haha, yes :D
sachin kaushik (1 year ago)
In India it took @ 11-12 hrs for @500kms. and facilities are very poor. you quit lucky.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Very true...
sachin kaushik (1 year ago)
Madam,why it is said "on the Train" and not "in the Train" Regards,
English with Max (1 year ago)
"On" is just the preposition we normally use for large forms of transport (on the bus, on the plane, etc). Sometimes we say "in the train" if we want to make a clear distinction between being inside and not outside, but you won't hear that as often as "on the train".
Toto Kassan (1 year ago)
