New Service Starting This Week. As I mentioned on Friday 27 January, Radio Città Futura is broadcasting programmes on the BBC World Service. So you can now listen to high-quality radio in English with minimal effort.
Just tune your radio, whether at home or in your car, to 97.7 Mhz, which is Radio Città's frequency. The BBC is on air from 22.00 to 23.00 and from 01.00 to about 05.oo every day.
22.00 to 23.00 is the famous 'Newshour' programme. Then in the middle of last night I heard an interview with the Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif, who speaks near-perfect English. How many British politicians speak Arabic?
Please do try listening to the BBC World service in English. It will be hard at first, but it is excellent practice. Try writing down words and phrases you recognise, then try to guess the topic of the broadcast.
And as always, please leave your comment!
