Listening B2/C1: Sustainability

How sustainable are you?

Do you do anything to look after the environment in some way? Maybe you walk or cycle to work or commute using public transport. You might even be one of those people (like me), that makes the most of the dog’s walk carrying bags around to the recycling bin, which can be quite horrible and embarrassing, when your dog starts pulling at the lead and all the plastic bottles start falling out of the bag, one by one, clonk, clonk, clonk.  Anyway, it doesn’t matter what you do. Doing our bit is important, isn’t it?

Here’s a listening activity on this topic which is related to one of the topics that students of the EOI should cover throughout the year. See how it goes ­čśë

  1. Many thanks for your remarks! Actually there WAS a video but it isn’t there any more. I’ll check to see what’s happened. There’s also a little content I wrote for the purpose of the video, which isn’t too difficult as it is for B2 level students.
    Anyway, thanks again for the suggestion, which will help me improve the Blog.


  2. I think what you published made a ton of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?

    I am not saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added something to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean B2 Listening ‘Sustainability’ – Serena's
    blog is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article headlines to grab
    people to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about
    what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
