BBC World Service Report on the Camorra

Last week, some of you took part in a listening exercise on Roberto Saviano and the Camorra. People experienced varying degrees of difficulty, but most of you said you would like to try similar exercises as a regular class activity.

It's time consuming to prepare such activities, but I hope we will be able to do one at least every two weeks. Meanwhile, you can continue practising listening to the World Service by yourselves. Here's how:

1. Go to the BBC World Service Radio Podcasts web site.
2. Check through the lists of podcast categories. Choose, for example, 'Global News'.
3. Each podcast has a summary of the contents, so you can easily see what it contains. Choose one that interests you.
4. Download it to your computer or i-Pod so that you can listen to it as often as you like. You'll see instructions for doing this on the Web page.

Happy Listening! And we'll do another exercise next week. I hope it won't be one you have already listened to. :-)

And don't neglect the BBC Learning English site.

More soon - and please don't forget to leave your comment.
