TED - good for listening practice

Dear all,

Coming soon - a fresh Listening Quiz. Meanwhile, here is a well known site where you can listen to people speaking in public on all sorts of topics.

It's called TED. This stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. Its subtitle is "Ideas Worth Spreading" - or challenging.

Check it out here at www.ted.com

Current topics, as seen this morning, include: tales of two migrant survivors of a sea passage; LGBT life around the world; and "The Moral Bias Behind Your Search Results." I will have listen to that myself.

You're bound at the very least to learn something new. The talks come with transcripts for easier listening.

Have a go - and please do post your reactions in a Comment or on the Tag Board.

More soon,
Best wishes,
Mike
