diary Oct 15th 2017 - BBC radio

Today, I accessed the BBC internet radio " world service" for the first time since 2004 or so. Actually, I was often listening to the BBC world service when I was preparing for Step Eiken English test, which is one of the most popular standardized English tests in Japan, because the exam tendency is relatively close to various timely new topics like ones on BBC, Newsweek, and Time. Recently my main focus on English listening practice has been how to get yourself be used to quick spoken English, and cosmetics youtubers' videos are helpful in that purpose because many of them speak English fast. Today's my impression about BBC radio was " their speaking are clear and relatively slow compared to video bloggers ".  So, the BBC radio after 13 years interval was a fresh experience.

本日は、10数年ぶりにBBCワールドサービスを聴いてみた。2002年~2003年頃は、毎日、BBCもしくはCNNのインターネットラジオを聴くのが日課だった(リスニング練習として)。特にBBCのニュースは英検準1級の時事問題などと話題が共通するので、気に入っていたが、その後、読むべきものが増えて、ニュースをネットで聴くのからは疎遠になってしまった。10数年ぶりに聴いたBBCラジオ、懐かしく、また新鮮にも感じました。
