Listening and watching news

Here's another news clip with questions from my favourite student news show in Australia.  

This week the story is about asthma.  Asthma is something lots of people suffer from in Istanbul so I thought it might be interesting.  What is more, as the weather is warmer now there is probably lots of dust, pollen and higher pollution levels which can cause asthma attacks for these people.

You Tube has some great videos for listening practice!

What I really like about this story is that foreign university students in London set up the project.  

And the result was so simple, but it completely changed the lives of people in Rwanda, Africa.  

Watch the video and see how much you can generally understand - you don't need to focus on every word as the pictures are very helpful.

A fun way to improve your listening

National Geographic has an interesting education website.  

You can watch videos on various subjects and answer questions about them.  To get you started I've included a link here to watch a video about earthquakes.  If you enjoyed this then take a look at some of the other videos they have on their page.
