And hello, I’m Neil.
Our topic today is transport.
How do you think you’ll be travelling to work in say 30 years’ time, Rob?
Well, not only will homeworking be more prevalent, that means ‘common’.
But I hope I won’t be working in 30 years’ time!
But if we look back and see how transport has changed in the last 30 years, it makes you wonder what the future holds.
Yes, we’ve seen how air travel has become commonplace for many people.
Commonplace means ‘not unusual’.
And there’s been the development of high-speed train travel.
But the main priority has been speed – going faster to make your journeys quicker.
That’s true, and we’ll be discussing some ideas for making transport even faster soon.
But let’s not waste any time and speed on to today’s quiz question.
