News of the world: Linking continents

We begin our section "News of the world", whose aim is to connect our Geography lessons with the current world we live in. Today we are talking about a new infrastructure that has been inaugurated in Istanbul, Turkey: the Marmaray, the world's deepest immersed tube tunnel.

Questions about the video:
  • How many ways were there of getting from one side of Istanbul to the other?
  • Why don't some people in Istanbul want to be on this train? What does the Government say?
