Indoor Sports Scene 2

Ashlie and Ellie have a great time on the indoor snowboarding slope, but it turns out climbing isn't as easy as Stephen thought...

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to the Tasks and do the activities. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Task 1

Task 2

When they're deciding what to do at the sports centre, Stephen, Ash and their cousins use expressions like:

I've got a good idea.     Why don't ... ?
What do you think?     Sounds great!



Task 3


Language level

Intermediate: B1
Upper intermediate: B2


Good evening, everyone.
Although I like sport and extreme sports I have never do snowboarding or climbing. Actually I have tried once to do snowboarding but it was a mess and I wasn't so brave to try again at that time, but still go to the mountain and I did some sports winter there but for me is enough just do sledging.
Those are outdoors sports,but sometimes as you would see these are could do it inside,
and usually,are mountain sports, but some places like this one could provide as those sports without need to be on the mountain.I have never been afraid of the heights but now it depends if you are going to climb on the really height mounts then it might be afraid if have a look down then you might get afraid but if you are not have a look down then you might not be.

I can fully understand Ash , stephen and Rob ,too .while speaking
but when the instructor starts to speak ,I couldn't understand most of his speech ...So why that happens with me
Note;it happened before with me in videos in section Business & Work.

Hello basant emad eldin,

Ashlie, Stephen and Rob are all used to speaking very clearly, and you're also more used to their voices because you've listened to them a lot more. The other people in the videos are mostly new for you, and some of them are not used to being on video, so don't have as much practice speaking as clearly as the others.

Even though it's difficult, I'd encourage you to pay special attention to these other people, as they are good examples of the way some native speakers speak. If you use the transcript to help you understand what they say and pay attention to the ways they pronounce words and phrases, it should (slowly) help your listening comprehension improve.

Keep up the good work!

All the best,

what kind of movies do you like?

Hello. And Bye.

Sorru. I am having diffcult to do the task 2. After putting the expressions in the blanks, they appear again in the options to choice.

Hello again simone,

Yes, sorry about that – there's a little trick you must use for this to work. After you have moved a first item to a group, you must first click or press on the item you want to move and then (and this is the important part) you must click or press on top of the small hand at the right end of the first item's box for it to enter the group without making the first item leave.

It's a bit difficult to describe, but very easy to do once you understand it. If you need me to describe it again, please let us know.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
