Your English 35 End of the World (Part 2)

This recording is the continuation of Podcast No.34 and concerns the influence of the media on our lives. It deals with the story of the radio play by Orson Welles that made Americans believe Martians had come to make war on the world and the reactions of the population.

After the listen & repeat part, there are discussion questions that students can take down in dictation and then discuss in class.

Whatever the level of your students, this listening comprehension in two parts will help them learn useful structures and get them speaking.

Kind regards,
