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?

Fun with Nursery Rhymesj

Language is musical.

Every language has a unique pattern and rhythm.

Reciting Nursery Rhymes helps you learn that pattern. It also helps pronounciation. This Spring I have mounted a special Nursery Rhyme Display outside my house (Jumble House) in Castel Rigone, Umbria to encourage local children to enjoy having fun learning and using English.

Look at this one :

Hickory Dickory Dock.

The mouse ran up the clock.

The clock struck one.

Dong!

The mouse ran down.

Hickory Dickory Dock.

Tick. Tock.
