Learning by Listening.
Happy New Year (belatedly). Let’s kick off the year with a challenging listening exercise but one, which provides a wealth of vocabulary to kick start your 2021 word list.
In this deep dive into what a Biden administration could mean in terms of personnel and policy, Patrick Bet-David (a notoriously fast speaker!!!) gives us his comprehensive take on what the various US economy sectors can expect from a Biden government. https://youtu.be/JTuRoAXpjzU
At https://teatimetitbits.de/download/what-to-expect-under-biden/ there’s the free vocabulary PDF, which I divided into 7 sections and 120 items of vocab. Politics (30 items), business (32 items), must-know verbs (6 items), other must-know words (13 items), nice to know (12 items), pick up your slang man (15) and finally a few of the rest (12 items).
While you are there, feel free to download (all) the other free PDFs, never look a gift horse in the mouth as it were. Definitely download the ‘Grab your free PDFs’ (an up-to-date list of all the free PDFs) and you can cherry-pick the rest later.
