1.You will hear three people talking about their primary school teachers. Read sentences A-D , which summarise what they say, and answer the questions to predict what they might say.
A.I had a teacher who was too strict.
•What do strict teachers do?
B. I had a teacher who was inspiring despite some faults.
•In what way can a teacher be inspiring ?
•What faults can a teacher have?
C. I had a teacher who was never punctual.
•If someone is never punctual , what does (s)he do?
D. I had a teacher who was demanding teacher do?
•What makes a teacher fair?

2.Now listen to the three people and match what they say A-D to the numbers 1-3. One option does not match any of the speakers.

3.One of the recordings contains of the same world as one of the options, yet that option is not the right answer! Which one?

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
