Adult Speaking Class, level 3. News for Vietnamese

11th March 2020

Making the news, across the world, is the continued spread of the Corona Virus.

This is a topic which is affecting millions of people, and having a significant impact on the global economy but of course … health comes first.

I’m writing from Vietnam, where precautions were implemented rapidly. Schools were closed, for example, so my centre is offering online-classes.

I recommend students read as much ‘real-life’ English as possible, not rely solely on the text books, so I was interested by this clip from the BBC, specifically aimed at Vietnamese.

This is a speech by POTUS (President of the United States), Donald Trump. The purpose of this blog is not politics BUT to encourage students to listen to the language and thereby learn new words and expressions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twd60cPH7t0

The clip has Viet subtitles so is a great way to learn expressions, vocabulary as well as HOW native speakers speak … where we put the stress and intonation.

Everyone, please keep safe, keep well.
