“I took(got on) the Shinkansen.”
Hello everyone. Oh, are you going out now? What are you going to take/get on?
Repeat after me
1. I(’m going to) take a bus.
2. I(’m going to) take a taxi
3. I(’m going to) take the subway/tube.
4. I(’m going to) take a train.
5. I(’m going to) take an airplane.
Note: “kuruma ni norimasu” can be either you get in a car (driven by someone other than yourself) or you drive a car. “kuruma wo unten shimasu” indicates specifically that YOU drive. Meanwhile, “jitensha(bicycle) ni norimasu”、”baiku(motor bike) ni norimasu” normally mean YOU ride.
Repeat after me
1. I take a rapid train at Tokyo station.
2. I took the Shinkansen from Kyoto to Hakata.
3. I’ll change to local train at the next station.
4. I’ll get off at the fourth station.
5. I’ll take a bus from the front of the department store.
6. I’ll get off at the next bus stop.
7. I got off the taxi in front of the station.
Note: All types of Japanese trains are roughly classified as (in ascending order of the number they stop);
• Tokkyu = limited express
• Kyukou= express
• Kaisoku= rapid
• Kakueki = local
(The name may vary depending on the railway company that operates it.)
Now, make a sentence as follows,
Next stop, get off
→ I get off at the next stop.
1. → I take a taxi.タクシーに のります。
2. → I drive a taxi.タクシーをう んてんします。
3. → I go back (home) by a taxi.タクシーで かえります。
4. → I wait for a taxi.タクシーを まちます。
5. → I change (a train) at this station.このえきで のりかえます。
6. → I change to the opposite train (= I change to the train at the opposite platform).

Note: English translations might sound occasionally unnatural as English, as I try to preserve the structure and essence of the original Japanese. I hope it also helps you to capture the pattern of the sentence structure.
