✔Lesson transcript:

The  COP26 was a two week UN-sponsored international conference held in the  Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow, UK. COP stands for ‘Conference of the  Parties’ this is a term used by the United Nations Climate Change which  is used to refer to meetings held annually during its Convention period.  The conference seeks to reduce global warming to well below 2 degrees  Celsius, aiming for 1.5 degrees if possible.

With important countries not attending the event, and some important world leaders sleeping during presentations,  ask yourself, are we taking these problems seriously any more? Even the  event’s name suggests we have genuine problems agreeing to make changes  collectively. We are in the 26th meeting and we still don’t have a  common world agreement dealing with the key issue of temperature rises.

Not only can you practice listening to natural, conversational English being used in real-life situations,  talking about real-world events. You can also read along and look up  difficult vocabulary at the same time using our free PDF transcript for every audio lesson.  If you’re an English language learner and want to bring your listening  skills up a notch, you’re in the right place.
