Passing it on: English Listening Exercise
Story Corp is a great resource for listening. They are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of their lives. There is such an array of beautiful stories that I always get caught up listening to more than one story.
In the Story Corp we used for this week’s English listening exercise, Thomas Weller explains how he started helping complete strangers on the side of the roads in Southern California, and how he believes in passing good deeds on.
Listen to the interesting voice of Weller by clicking here, and then do the exercise.
