Europe’s night trains – level 1

13-06-2023 15:00

There is a new train service from Brussels to Berlin. Experts hope that it will change train travel in Europe.

The train goes at night. It is cheap. The service is important because it will decide if other train services can happen. Trains are better for the environment than planes. The train is running now, and people are using it. People want to travel by train for holidays and work.

The train is not as new as other trains. New trains are expensive. The people who run the train want to get more trains in the future. But is difficult to start a train business. Companies need money for it. It is also important to buy new trains to make the business work.

Difficult words: environment (the natural world), expensive (when something costs a lot of money).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What factors do companies need to consider in order to be successful in starting a train business?
