A DIFFERENT WAY TO LEARN AND REVISE
Learn from Videos
First of all, and before you start, make sure you understand all questions and answers in the questionnaire.
Take your time, and watch the videos as many times as you need.
You can slow down the videos (no more than 75%, otherwise it distorts words), but try NOT to use any subtitles.
This is not necessarily considered a Listening exercise, as sometimes the questions might ask you to summarize or interpret what happened in the video, but there is a lot of useful vocabulary in all of them.
Students generally find this activity quite challenging, but this is because these are authentic resources not necessarily adapted to foreign language learners. However, you will learn so much from them, not only language-wise, but also culturally. Pick your first one!
