I would like to try the wingsuits because I've heard that it's very fun to do that. I'd like to feel the adrenaline in my body.

Hi everybody! I'd like to try out cloud-maker machine. Oh, it's very interesting! I bet it would be very romantic if there were many clouds around me. In my imagination, it is beautiful.
I am aslo impressed with the Deepsea Challenger Submarine. It's an important invention for human.

Hello, my name is Lautaro, I'm practicing my English, I would like chat with somebody that likes football. About the inventions, I can say that the only invention that I like is "the water destiler", I think that the others are too useless.

In the text the very interesting invention is of a Dutch artist. He has come up with a way of forming perfect clouds.
Another interesting invention was invented by some Ukrain students. They invented a glove for traslating language into text, them into smoken language using a smartphone.

When I read 'Mary Poppins' in which the main character,Mary, came down from the sky on the wind with an open umbrella, my friends and I were tempted to fly on the wind like her……
Then, we tried… we tried a jump one by one from the window with an open umbrella…………..
Ouch……..!!!!!!

Hi 0721,
This is a difficult listening. Go to the main Listening skills practice section and click on 'Level A1' If these listenings are too easy, click on 'Level A2'. To find out more about our level system on the website have a look here: http://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/cef-levels You can also search all our material by level if you go to the Contents page. Click ALL on the main menu bar to get there. 

I hope this helps. Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

This listening record is really hard for me, i couldn't hear all inventions properly even i listened this recording many time, Jed speaks too fast i think and some words are new for me, but it's better after i read the transcript.
I think the coolest invention is enable talk gloves, they are so useful to help people with special needs.

Hi Niluh,
Don't worry if you found this listening difficult. This is a high level of English and the recording is quite fast. The best thing to do is to listen several times and to use the transcript - which is exactly what you've done. You're a really good student, Niluh! :)
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Celebrities make often disastrous role model. For example teenagers idolise female stars with a perfect body because they are unhappy with their own bodies. Many celebrities are narcissistic and worthlessness.
Luis Suarez, one of the best soccer player on the planet, has a history of biting his opponents during matches. He is probably the worst role model.
Taylor Swift is an example of good role model. Her concerts have a positive message for young girls.
