BRIDGE LESSON We're trying another style with today's "podcast" by filming the episode in 2D video! Let us know your thoughts about this format. Today we have a really useful lesson for intermediate students looking to level up and start learning from original source material such as the news and weather. Today's lesson contains some more specialized words, so perhaps take a moment to look over the vocabulary before watching the lesson.
