Listening B2 Banksy is Back

Game Changer by Banksy
  • Do you know who Banksy is? What do you know about this artist?
  • What do you think about graffiti? Do you think it is an art or an act of vandalism?
  • Are there laws against graffiti in your country?
  • The artist we are going to speak about is a street artist. What do you know about street artists? Do you think this is a serious career or is it a mean of support for unemployed people in your country?

Here’s a listening activity on this very well-known street artist.

The level of the test is a B2 (upper Intermediate) although the topic could well belong to higher levels, so I would highly recommend watching the video even if you will probably find the activity undemanding if you are in an advanced level of English.
