Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Episode 37 – Listening for Reasons + Recording (Skillful Foundation)

I found this to be very useful for elementary listeners.  While I was reading the specific book above, I thought, “hmmmm maybe I should make this a recording?”  So, I did!

When we decline an invitation, we might give a reason (or an excuse).

We can use because before a reason, or we can state the reason in a new sentence.

Do you want to see a movie tonight? Sorry, I can’t.  I need to study. 

^Decline^ —->    ^Reason^

Listen to the excerpts from three of the calls.  Why don’t the friends accept the invitation? I want you to write the reasons on a sheet of paper, type them on my blog, or on my FB page @ Arsenio’s TOEIC-TOEFL-IELTS

There are three recordings.
