In China,most students go to school by bike or by bus.Some students also walk to school.In places where there are rivers and lakes,students usually go to school by boat,that must be a lot more fun than taking a bus!i know that in Japan,most students take trains to school.how about your country?

riding a bike - I liked riding a bike to get to school when i was a student.
Some students have to get up early every morning on weekdays to get to school on time by bus or bike in our country. Sometimes riding a bike is faster than taking a bus.I liked riding a bike to get to school when i was a student.

In the Philippines, when there are students who walk to get to their schools - this of course applies to those who live near the schools.. But most frequently, students ride on public vehicles called 'jeepney' and 'tricycle'. A jeepney is a 20 to 28 seater vehicle which passes a definite route everyday.. A tricycle is a 7 seater vehicles that brings a passenger anywhere in the vicinity... Bicycles also count as achoice for some students but it's a little dangerous in the Philippines for that to be done because Pinoy drivers are irresponsible.. They might just get hit.. B-)

Yeah.. There are many forms of transport here in the Philippines that students use to get to school.. It would just depend on the location of their school and their house of course.. In addition, aside from public transports, some luckier students have parents who can afford to pay for a school bus or school service to pick them up everyday from their house to their school and vise versa..

It's a funny topic, I think, for most primary school studuents, living near their school is very necessary, because traffic problem often make trouble on their way to school.But for those high school students, saving time is the first consideration of them and their parents. However,in China, many collage students like to go far away from their hometown to try another independent life style. So different idear has differnt choice to go to school.

here in the philippines we have transportation for grade school students and also high school. its called SCHOOL BUS or SCHOOL SERVICE. but it is rare in public schools. usually in private schools only. if you're studying in a public school system, you'll probably walk to school, take a jeepney or a tricyle. :))
