Hello Teacher Avangi. Thank you for your great answer!

No. Just #1. ie You can travel to any place on a ship. What does the word “ie” mean? Help!

If I want to express a convenient transportation like a taxi, which I can take at any place in a big city.

How to make this idea of a sentence? I want to just use the word “anywhere”.

Below is my sentence. Please help correct. Or make a suitable sentence for me

In a big city like , , , anywhere we can take a taxi and we can take a taxi anywhere.

The anywhere in yellow, I mean at any place of , , ,

Thanks again.

Hello! Teacher CliveEmotion: big smile

First, I ‘m Sorry for a wrong name, I mean I intended to write email to you not Teacher Avangi.

Second, your answer about in a big city like , , or , anywhere we can take a taxi and we can take a taxi anywhere.

That seems not what I want. I mean I just got half of it.

Um… How to say this?… I mean that the sentence “we can take a taxi anywhere” is equal to “ we can travel to any place by taxi”. Because you tell me that “You can take a ship anywhere.” = you can take a ship to any place. =You can travel to any place on a ship

According to those explanations, now I know above Examples well.

Now if I want to express “we can take a taxi at any place in Tokyo ”, tell me how to use the word “anywhere” to make the second sentence of same meaning .

I mean “we can take a taxi at any place in ”= “ … anywhere ... “ Ps. you can put the word “anywhere” at any place in the sentence,

Help me fill in blank in yellow. Maybe my thought is not workable? I just want to try.

Sorry for being weak at writing in English. But I really do my best for this expression.

Thanks again

The natural way to say this is We can get a taxi anywhere.
'To get a taxi' means basically 'to call one and get into it'.

Sorry for being weak at writing in English. But I really do my best for this expression.
Don't apologize, that's no problem. Emotion: smile

Jacky56LinWhat does the word “ie” mean?
It's not really a word. It's an abbreviation for two Latin words.

Jacky56LinNow if I want to express “we can take a taxi at any place in Tokyo ”
You can [get / find / catch] a taxi anywhere in Tokyo.

catch is used in casual conversation, but it's not slang.

Thank you very much Clive and CalifJim
