  • Jaws! A Classic Movie English Listening Exercise

    Today I discovered a great channel on YouTube that I didn’t know about before, Movieclips. This channel has clips from many famous American movies, including lots of classics.

    For today’s listening exercise, I selected a great moment from a movie that I really loved when I was young, Jaws! After seeing this movie, I was afraid to swim in anything other than a swimming pool for a long time. Watch the clip below, then try answering the listening questions. This clip has a lot of phrasal verbs. You can study them here.

    Answer the questions in comments, and we’ll respond.
