Webcast for October 30, 2009

For Quia exercises, you do NOT need to sign in, however, if you set up a Quia account for yourself, and sign in with that, you can track your performance on the quizzes. Suggestions:
  • Read all the exercises first! They will help you to understand everything you can.

  • Don't listen word for word. Try to get the gist. On the other hand, pay close attention to names and numbers.
  • Use your background knowledge and common sense. If you are listening to a report on a natural disaster in Brazil, chances are it won't have to do with snow.
  • While the scripts for the broadcasts are available, use them only as a last resort.
Read the title. If you are uncertain about the topic, look at the vocabulary list at the top of the Quia exercise page. Listen to the mp3 file once, taking notes if you wish, then go to the Quia page and try doing the exercise. Listen a second time (the sound file is linked to the Quia page) before clicking to check your answers, then listen again. You can download the sound files in iTunes to listen repeatedly while on the go, continuing to develop your skills.
