Traffic jams. This morning I wasted an hour and a half in a traffic jam. Likely I had an audiobook on my phone. Problems with traffic become a usual thing in my city. I used to read printed books and books in the smartphone but it is bad for my eyes. What about traffic jams in your city? What do you usually do in this case? Maybe you have some ideas about how to spend time in a traffic jam? Once I saw a woman who was singing sitting her car. Maybe I should try to?

Most of my student increase their listening skills and watch the videos or comedy sketches I send them. One of my students put the music on high and sing along with the singer I am seeing a noticeable difference in his English.

As for me, I have a home office and working from home both offline and online just because of the horrible traffic in my city. It is the sixth largest city and 14 million people in it. I am trying to move to a city where I could travel from point A to point B without a headache due to noise pollution, and a deep regret due to wastage of time.

Richard said that his city is small. I actually live in town with only 10000 citizens and belive me - even here sometimes is a traffic. I really don't know where are we going as a civilisation.

I live in a small city (150,000 population) so the worst traffic jam will delay me by only 5 minutes. 

Try using your phone to record your speaking, whatever language you are learning.

Later you can ask a native speaker or a teacher to comment on your recording, your speaking skill.

Talk about any topic.


If you are listening to an audiobook in English, then stop the recording at the end of every sentence and try to repeat the sentence.
