Listening Exercise

Hello everyone,

Good Job on the listening exercise. It was a little difficult this time but I hope that you all could get some good practice. Below is the video clip with my voice to help you with the listening. I have also posted the words from what they say.

Bilbo:  Good morning.

Gandalf:  What do you mean?  Do you mean to wish me a good morning or do you mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not.  Or perhaps you mean to say that you feel good on this particular morning.  Or are you simply stating that this is a morning to be good on.

Bilbo:  All of them at once I suppose.  Can I help you?

Gandalf:  That remains to be seen.  I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure.

Bilbo:  An adventure?  Now I don’t imagine anyone west of Brie would have much interest in adventures.  Nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things, make you late for dinner.

New Listening Exercise

Please watch the following clip from the 2012 movie “The Hobbit, an Unexpected Journey”. I will load another video with my voice between the movie scenes later. Please try to listen to the dialogue and answer the questions.

  1. Gandalf, the tall wizard with the beard and hat, wished Bilbo, the man sitting, a good morning. However Gandalf described many different meanings for “good morning”. Which meaning did Bilbo mean?
  2. Bilbo asked Gandalf “Can I help you?” What was Gandalf’s reply?
  3. What is Gandalf looking for?
  4. What does Bilbo think of adventures?

Listening Exercise

Hi everyone,
This week please watch this video from the 2012 movie “Django Unchained”. The first video is a normal video. The second movie has my voice added to it between the movie scenes. It is a little long but please use it to practice your native English listening skill. This movie uses some of the same vocabulary from the movie 2 weeks ago.
