    If you have internet access on your phone, you can listen to English-speaking radio stations while you travel. Not all BBC sites are available all over the world but you will be able to find some.

    You could try listening to The Archers - a long-running radio soap opera in the UK.

    Please look at the amendments I made to your post in red. Be careful with your punctuation and remember the following rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
