This practice will consist of a video where I will interview a person and I will propose a series of questions that you will have to answer. I will also add some specific vocabulary exercises to help you better understand the conversation and expressions that appear in it.

I propose this way of working:

  • Check the vocabulary glossary
  • Read the questions carefully
  • First listening to the audio / video, the first listening can be to have a general idea of ​​the topics that we are going to discuss
  • Second listening to the audio / video, here you can try to answer the general questions I ask you. You can even try to answer the questions that ask for some details
  • If necessary you can do a third listening.

Don’t worry if you have a hard time understanding everything, it is not necessary. Try to understand the main ideas and if you need more auditions to answer the questions do so without feeling guilty.

They are exercises to improve understanding, you will achieve it consistently.
