Listening to English: 'From Our Own Correspondent' (BBC)

Hello everyone. It's 6 September and it is not long since I returned to Rome. So I haven't had time yet to devise a 'Six Minute English' listening comprehension exercise. But here is something equally interesting: From Our Own Correspondent.

Listen to the report from Tripoli, Libya. Here are two questions to help you concentrate on the information it contains:

1. Why did the correspondent find Colonel Gaddafi's Bab-el-Aziziya headquarters in Tripoli 'surreal'?

2. What are the Libyans' reactions when they visit Bab-el-Aziziya?

Post your answers on the Tag Board (limited to 22 characters) or in a Comment - just click the Comment link at the bottom of this post.

More soon!
