Listening. A day in Ho Chi Minh City

A day in Ho Chi Minh City

Listen and watch this one minute video.

Then try to answer the questions.

The answers will be published tomorrow in a new post.,

I am going into a Shopping Centre in Ho Ch Minh City.

There are lots of shops.

Toy shops. Cake shops. Chocolate shops.

I go down the escalator to the ground floor where I see people enjoying a coffee in the coffee bars or eating a meal in the restaurants.

Now I’m outside.

I buy a coconut juice from this lady.

It is very noisy,

The roads are crowded with motorbikes and scooters.

I walk down to the docks where it is much quieter and enjoy a coffee in the Terminal Coffee Bar watching the ferries departing for the islands.

Now test your listening and understanding.,

Questions:

1. Which city am I visiting?

2. How do I get to the ground floor?

3. Why is it noisy outside?

4. What drinks do I have?

5. Where is the ‘Terminal Coffee Bar’?

6. Are the roads busy or quiet?

The Beach

This is a beach in Bournemouth.
Bournemouth is a seaside town on the South Coast of England. There are lots of sandy beaches along the South Coast. During the summer months the beaches are very crowded with tourists.

Dogs are not allowed on the main beaches but there is a ‘Dog Beach’.

This video will help you to learn the basic beach vocabulary. It is also good as a comprehension exercise.
