S1E47 – Quick Dictations – Beer At The Airport

Episode Notes

A weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.

How to use:

  1. Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
  2. Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
  3. Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
  4. Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.

(The dictations starts at 34 seconds, if you don’t need the instructions)

Transcript:
A group of friends from Northern Island booked a flight to meet up during lockdown. But all is not what it seems. With all of the bars and pubs closed in Northern Ireland, the only place to drink a pint was at the airport. So, they all booked a cheap £10 flight and met up at the airport to have a drink at the bar there. They posted photos of their beer and boarding passes on social media, and have been branded ‘legends’. Selfishness or a great idea, what do you think?
