And what sort of TV programmes do you think are also useful for learning English?

Nastya: Well, we can improve our listening skills by watching the news and documentaries? Soap operas and drama. We can hear how people really talk in the UK. And you can learn a lot about British culture in this way, can't we?

Alex: We can, if we live in countries, where BBC is broadcast. But it is not broadcast everywhere, especially in English and not in translation. Besides you should pay for watching it. I think it's better to read British national papers.Nastya: British national newspapers? You don't say so! British newspapers and magazines are also not sold 240 everywhere. I doubt if I can buy a British newspaper in every Russian town.

Alex: Well, I don't mean traditional, printed papers, but I'm talking about online papers which include not only different and interesting texts for reading, but also very useful podcasts on wide topics.

Nastya: Oh, that's really a very good idea. And it seems to me that we can't avoid the Internet if we'd like to improve English on our own. Let's see™ what picture have we missed and not discussed yet. Well. We haven't mentioned English books and CDs, have we?

Alex: Well, somehow we haven't focused our attention on them. But, surely, we can't learn any language without using course-books, text-books, grammar and vocabulary books and the like staff. But books without a good English teacher is nothing. Do you use books recommended by your teacher or you choose them on your own?

Nastya: At school our teacher usually tells us what course-books we are supposed to use at our lessons. But besides I buy English books on history and literature on my own for my self-studies or my studies with the tutor.

Alex: So, let's come to a conclusions about the ways we might try to improve our English. In other words, what are they? The first two, I believe, include the Internet opportunities and books. We've earlier agreed on these points, haven't we?

Nastya: Yes, we have. But personally I believe that socializing with people is also very important. If you have nice English-speaking friends, you will keep on learning more and more about English-speaking communities and their cultures. You can hear different English accents and meet people from different social stratum.

Alex: No doubts, but sometimes it can be rather difficult to make friends with native English speakers when you don't live in an English-speaking country.

Nastya: But once you met someone you can skype with him or with her and talk for hours and hours.

Alex: O.K. Let it be the third useful way of helping us to improve our speaking practices.

Nastya: In other words, firstly, one of the ways is the Internet and its use for various purposes, secondly, using printed books can't be also avoided. And, thirdly, communicating with English-speaking people is also very beneficial to us

Examiner: Thank you.
