Listening Homework

I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year, but you should also try to practice your skills.

In this link you will find a BBC webpage on football, featuring David Beckham. You can watch the video and also download the audio and a worksheet with activities on football idioms and 'up' phrasal verbs. The answers and the script are at the end of the sheet, but do not cheat!

And these are the keys of the Listening Exam.

Why are there so many people in the world without food, water, schools and doctors?
In the rich countries talking about “development” usually means feeling happy about pop stars or politicians
The Soviet Union and countries closely connected with it made another different world
The “Third World” did not get its name for being poor but for being outside of the Cold War
Poor countries were only left with one choice if they wanted to get richer.
These organisations lent them money and told them what kind of political changes to make in their country
A lot of industries have closed down or been moved abroad
There has been a big increase in the employment of people who provide complicated services like investments or insurance
Development is happening everywhere around the world and it has started to be called “globalisation”. There is a serious argument that this process is unfair.
International trade is good for a minority of people who receive the profits from big transactions.
It leaves the poor countries either to pay back loans, or to buy expensive luxuries
