This week we discussed both natural and manmade disasters: volcanos, cyclones, typhoons, tsunamis, avalanches, floods, droughts, wildfires, you name it.
To practice your listening skills, learners can try something from ESLVideo or the exercise 72 hour Emergency Disaster Kit for something a little harder.
For original version, I can't recommend enough the fascnating story of a Japanese man who was Double Blasted.
Learners can start by reading some short texts that touches on common vocabulary and has a fill in the gap exercise to go with it. Or, think about reading about Tsunamis and Earthquakes.
For original version reading, read about different disasters in history or explore this fascinating map about disasters around the world.
