As promised, here is a quick listening comprehension exercise based on the BBC Learning English site's "Six Minute English". This time we're looking at love and romance, although St. Valentine's Day is now some time behind us.
As usual, the site asks you a multiple choice question, the answer to which you'll hear at the end of the programme. And here are three questions from me; try to answer them as you listen.
1. In what way are prairie voles like human beings?
2. What can a "genetic love test" demonstrate?
3. Who would use a "genetic love test"?
Please put your answers on the Tag Board or in the Comments section below this post.
Now listen to the programme.
There's lots of useful language there, so this is an opportunity for you to collect new words such as surge, compound, antidote and predisposition.
Coming soon: English language newspapers from around the world.
I look forward to seeing your answers on the Blog!
