LISTENING PRACTICE:
You’ve always been the listener extraordinaire! Here’s a fun listening exercise top help you advance your skill in this area.
https://www.esl-lab.com/invite/inviterd1.htm

CORRECTIONS:
YOU SAID: For example in my class before, while I’m in the public school, I’m in the number 1 or number in the test, like this
always in our grade there have maybe 6 class and I’m in the before number 20 the old grade.

ranked me top 1 in the private school.

YOU SAID: But my city, my hometown is not the big city, it’s a small city. So my parents think “you need to go to the big city
and you need to have a better education.” It’s better for me so they pay the very expensive tuition for me to go the private
school but the teachers are very good. All the teacher have many many years’ experience for teaching but the students is not
good because all the students they have rich family.
BETTER TO SAY: But my hometown is not a big city. My parents thought it’s better for my future to send me to a private school
in the big city. So that’s what they did, they paid the expensive tuition fees of a private school with better, more experienced
teachers. But the students there came from rich families and were spoiled and lazy.

language couple, they think about how to make up, and fashion, like this so it’s not good, I think. In China like this.

rest just care about other things like couple sign language, fashion and makeup. This is the terrible situation in China.

VOCABULARY:

verbally abusive – being hurtful without physical contact, but simply by using words and insults.
Trophy wife – a young, attractive wife regarded as a status symbol for an older man.

OVERALL EVALUATION:
Hello, Angela-san! Lovely to see you again! I appreciate you telling me about your educational background in China. The
Philippine public school system is not very different from China. And a lot of rich kids get away with doing the bare minimum in
terms of studying. Also, I didn’t expect our discussion to take a more serious turn, but it was a really good talk, Angela. Don’t
give up on the M word, though. I’ve always believed there is someone for everyone. So yes, I am a hopeless romantic. At least I
think being a hopeless romantic benefitted me in the long run.

LISTENING:
You’ve always had first-rate listening skills, so here’s a listening exercise to keep you on your toes. Enjoy!
https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/skills/listening/advanced-c1-listening/wars-silver-lining

CORRECTIONS:
You said: They don’t have voting right and so going on strike, so those ways are only way to perform and say about their
opinions. Those ways are very important for them. And because climate change is one of the very important issue for every
kind of human being for our planet. And that is whatever, kids, adult. I think that everyone, every people should have a right to
talk about climate change even without voting right. Students’ behaviors should be respect.
Better to say: Since they don’t have voting rights, protests might be the only platform available for students to make their
voices heard about pressing issues like climate change. They are entitled to their opinion and for this matter, I totally support
their stance that this is a worldwide emergency that concerns all people from all walks of life. Their opinion deserves to be
heard and respected.

You said: Climate change is as you may know, this issue is very controversial issue. Climate change, global warming is gradually,
will invade to our daily life. And we do not, we could not feel directly so, what is the level of climate change. So tomorrow, next
year, five years later, we could arrive at the lives we have now and so talking about climate change, we talk about 30 yrs. later,
50 later and so that’s why we now, we don’t panic about climate. But seriously, we should think about the life of our children.
The gradual changing is one very difficult point.
Better to say: Climate change is a controversial issue that will affect our lives inevitably. This is a problem that slowly
progresses, which is why others deny its existence. It is difficult to convince every individual of a dilemma that is not easily
perceivable. But in reality, we need to address climate change quickly for our future and the future of our children.

You said: All of us very selfish people. The advanced countries always say that to control the amount of reducing greenhouse
gas for both advanced countries and developing countries that means to stop growth of developing countries. Very difficult
discrepancies bet economic growth and saving the environment.
Better to say: We are all selfish in our own right. Advanced countries might be more active in addressing climate change while
developing countries, in their aim for economic growth, are more likely to push this issue to the backburner. The reason for this
is because green living is inversely proportional to industrial growth.

EVALUATION:
Hello, Kazz-san! Thank you for another compelling discussion tonight. It’s good to know that you are aware of the
consequences our lifestyle brings to the environment. However, changes cannot be made overnight, and old habits are hard to
break. Hopefully in the near future we can find a solution that can reverse the damage we have caused. Again, thanks for
tonight and hope to see you soon!
