Often there are a lot of problem using public transport like no respect to fixed time, no place left or sitting places.
In Paris I did do a lot of sightseeing visiting the Louvre museum, the Effel Tower or Pompidou museum.
I would like visiting London where I would enjoy going to the Theatre or watching football match.

Usually I don't have any problems using public transport, but once when I was sightseeing in Barcelona and had to change the bus, I bought another ticket instead of using the previous one as it is allowed in Barcelona to make a stopover within 80 minutes using only one ticket.

I visited Nottingham three years ago. There, many buses didn't return the difference between the money given and the ticket price. It was a bit irritating. Only those with a "Y" giving back change. So, if you go there, remember to have some change on hand.

When it comes to the activities in the "Learn" section, when clicking the Activity 2 button, no statement appears.

Hi Frantoix, Thanks for the advice about buses in Nottingham. There are quite a few cities in the UK where you need the exact change to pay for your ticket when getting on a bus. I agree that this can be a bit annoying. Thanks for pointing out the problem with activity 2, it should be working now :) Rich - The Premier Skills English Team
