Cool & contemporary vocab: transport

There are more people using more forms of transport now than ever before. People need to travel to get to school, college or work, but all the cars and buses on the road cause a lot of traffic jams and pollution. In large cities like Beijing and even London and Paris, both have become serious problems.

Until technology and our governments find an effective solution to enable us to travel quickly, cheaply and in an environmentally-friendly way, we will continue to face the problems of heavy congestion and polluted air. Whether the electric car is the best answer remains to be seen, but it is definitely a step in the right direction!

I believe that the iPass course for the IELTS test had a big influence in my results. The most important parts of the course were the correction and suggestions of the written tasks and speaking through SKPYE, not only for the Speaking test but also because I could ask about the test and have immediate answers. Thank you Jenny and Nigel.
