  • English Listening Exercise: President Obama on Between Two Ferns

    The video for this week’s English listening exercise is really interesting and funny.

    President Obama goes on the comedy show, “Between Two Ferns” which is a really funny and pretty odd type of comedy. It is surprising that he would go on the show and it proves how he is really pushing younger people in the United States to join the health care program he helped create.

    Try the Listening Exercise:

    1. Why did he cancel a few times?

    2. In 2013 you pardoned a turkey. What ___ you ___ planned for 2014?

    8. What would he do if he was president? Why?

    9. What did Obama go on the show to “plug?”
