Hello again... "Listening" time!
Ok, do you remember File 1 or is it already too far away? The very first topic we tackled was "Names". Here you are two listening exercises, taken from the BBC site (wonderful site, by the way!):
- Nice and short exercise: text adapted for upper intermediate students with full text available (Over 3 minutes). Topic: popular names nowadays.
- "Real English" exercise: fancy a challenge? Listen to a chat between different women in a radio programme- the discussion topic is whether to change your surname when you get married (over 10 minutes). Remember: don´t panic! Pay attention to key words and don't expect to understand everything.
