Do you find listening to real British English challenging? If you do, I’m here to help.
In this post you’ll find a video with some geography facts about the United Kingdom.
This video is one of many videos and transcripts you’ll find to help your listening skills.
I’d like you to listen to the video and then EITHER write down the numbers you hear OR transcribe the whole text.
The full transcript is below the video (but no looking until you’ve done the work!):
The full transcript:
The UK’s coastline is 7,723 miles which makes it the third largest in Europe after Norway and Greenland.
The highest mountain is Ben Nevis in Scotland at 1,345 m
The longest river is the river Severn at 220 miles.
The largest freshwater lake is Lough Neagh which is 383 km2 or 3.53 km³ in volume.
Was this easy? Were some facts easier than others? Let me know in the comments.
