Teacher Luke: Listen to Luke tell you a rather bizarre story about an adventure involving a pink gorilla and a number of other characters. I recommend that you listen to the story several times as a way of enjoying and understanding it more.
In this episode I decided to improvise a story. To improvise something means to just make it up on the spot, without planning or preparing in advance. It is quite challenging and fun for me to improvise stories like this. I hope you enjoy it and realise that it is great listening practice for you.
The story begins after 15mins. There is a long, rambling introduction and then the story begins at 16:20
I use a variety of expressions, accents and verb forms in the episode. As you listen, try to spot some English which might be useful for you.
***There is some SWEARING in the story. I apologise if you find that offensive. You should remember that swearing (using rude words) is VERY RUDE in the WRONG SITUATIONS! Don’t swear in English class, in job interviews, in front of priests, when you are in polite company or if you meet the Queen, etc. Swearing is ok with your close friends, in private or when you’re playing football. Aaaaalright?
There are no language notes for this episode at the moment, but feel free to ask questions or make comments below.
I hope you enjoy the story. Speak to you soon. Bye bye bye!
