The first English class

The first English class

Listen to a teacher give students information about a new course to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.


Hello, everyone. Hello! It's nice to see you all here. Welcome to British Life and Language. I am your teacher. My name is Lindsay Black. That's L-I-N-D-S-A-Y Black. Before we begin, some information about the class.

Our class is in room 13, on the first floor. When you go upstairs, turn left to find the room. Again, that's room 13.

We have class twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday. Our class begins at 4.30 p.m. and lasts 90 minutes, so we finish at 6 p.m. That's 4.30 to 6. Please arrive on time, OK?

Also, I have an office hour if you have questions. I'm in office 7B on the second floor. My office hour is Friday at 6 p.m. So, if you have any questions or problems or want to talk to me, it's Friday at 6 p.m. in office 7B.

We begin next week, on March the 13th. That's Monday, March the 13th. The course ends on May the 20th. May the 20th is the last day.

I think that's all ... Oh, one more thing. For this course you need the book. Here it is: British Life and Language Level 1 Student's Book. So, please get a copy of the book. I don't want to see any photocopies of the book, thank you! Remember, it's level 1 student's book. Don't buy the teacher's book.

I think that's all, everyone. I look forward to working with you. See you next Monday!

I have noticed an interesting phenomenon. As you go further down the topics, there are fewer and fewer comments. It is clear that it is difficult to persist. However, I believe that persistence is the key to success. Keep it up, everyone!

When I was in university there was a course called "Basic English" in my first semester. That was an amazing course. Our course instructor always encouraged us to speak with our peers. At the time I noticed my improvement in my day to day conversation. After the semester ended, we missed our English class. We got another English course which was named "Advanced English Course" during our 11th semester. However, I didn't find this course as good as the previous one. After completing my graduation I started practicing alone by the help of the internet. Still I keep going...
