In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn how to buy a travel ticket and ask for travel information in Spanish. In the previous video lesson we learned some useful travel vocabulary in Spanish and here we will practice using what we learned with survival Spanish phrases for the train station. These sentences can be applied to other travel scenarios, such as the bus station or ferry port, and they will be a big help for anyone travelling around in Spain or Latin America. We will learn how to ask at what time a train leaves and arrives and how much it costs for a ticket. There are, of course, many other situations when we will need to ask for prices and pay and I will introduce as many of these scenarios as I can during this course. We have already looked a little at how to manage when buying clothes and shopping for food in Spanish and we will see how to manage at the airport in Spanish, etc, in future classes.
