    Dear Teacher,

    Please read the sentence below and correct or change any inappropriate words. Also write a brief, simple explanation as to why the orignal word choice is inappropriate.

    "I'd like some information about trains, please."

    Thanks to you in advance.

    It depends what you're asking for. This sentence wants information about the trains themselves. If you are travelling, you'd probably be more interested in 'train times' rather than the engines.
