Hello everybody in this episode I invite you to take this mini challenge and listen to the converstaion I play and write down everything you understand, then compare it with the right transcription. This method will help you to get a better listening and writting skills. The piece of audio was taken from a TV series I really love cause it has a lot of accents, the series is called Downton Abbey.
Please DO NOT READ the end of this description until you are done with the challenge.
Corrections: i said 1940 but i was thinking in 1914, I confused fourteen with fourty sorry, also with 15 and 50.
Please spread the word if you liked it, share this episode with everyone who needs to practice english.
