Your listening skills are already very good, but still there might be room for improvement, so it might be a good idea to try to improve your listening skills even further. In order to do that, you will need to listen to various different kinds of radio programmes, podcasts, talk shows, interviews, videos and films. For our next lesson, I would like you to listen to a radio programme/podcast in English that you have not heard before, something new, something different, so that you can expand your horizons. You can choose from the list below. As you listen to the programme/podcast, make notes trying to answer these questions:
Who is speaking?
What are they saying?
Where are they? Which place/places are they talking about?
When is it taking place? What time period are they talking about?
Why are they saying what they are saying?
You will tell us about your podcast during our online lesson.
