What do you do during your commute?

I get on a train to work and, I often listen BBC on my smartphone for my studying English. Perhaps It may 10 or 20 percent that I can catch words in total. However it will be meaningful to keep listening it.

自然な表現

I get on a train to work and I often listen to BBC on my smartphone for my English studies. Perhaps there are 10 or 20 percent of the words that I can catch in total. However, it will be meaningful to keep listening to it.

1. There's no need for a comma (,) here because "and" is already the connector.
2 & 7. "Listen" comes with the preposition "to".
3. You may also put it this way as the noun form of it.
4. Since you are referring to some existence, use this determiner with the helping verb.
5. You are referring to the percentage of words, so write it after the "percent".
6. Adverbs at the beginning of a sentence are generally separated from the rest of the sentence using a comma (,).
That's right, the more you listen, the better you will understand the news. How long have you been studying English on this platform?

I've kept listening BBC about for three years. Although my listening skill has not been improved, it may be one of the ways for listening. Nowadays, I seldom get on a train due to the coronaviruses. It was just three or four times to get on a train since the bigennin of April.

1. Again, "listen" comes with the preposition "TO".
2. There's only one "coronavirus" that we're having right now, which is the serious case.
3. Set a reference here. It's yours only, so you may say "for me".
4. This must have been a typographical error. Please check the spelling of "beginning".
It's not easy to learn a new language, it takes time for one to understand and master it. How long do you take in your commute?

It takes me almost an hour to go to the office from my home. I walk to the railway station for ten minutes from home. It takes thirty or forty minutes on a train. When I get on a train, it's so crowded that I cann't sit on a seat. If a passenger in front of me get off a train on my way to the office, I can sit on the seat. Perhaps it will be half or seventy percent that I can catch a vacant seat.

1, 2, & 5. Write numbers 10 and above in numbers as they are big ones, except at the beginning of a sentence.
3. This is the contracted form of "can not".
4. Observe the subject-verb agreement. There's only one subject, so the verb needs to have an -s.
I see. That is sad, I'm sure you are now used to the train system. Aren't there busses in Japan? Are they expensive than trains?

Although there are busses, they mainly complement railway networks. For example, busses run between railway station and residential area in suburban districts. Or they
connect two railway stations through residential areas where trains don't stop. In my case, there is no bus running from my home to the office area.

1. There's only one countable item here and the word starts with a consonant sound, so use "a".
I understand you. Many people are still working from home. Would you like to to work from home than going to the office?

I am obliged to get on a train to go to my office.
