So these are all very common words we use when we talk about university.
If there are any words here that you don't know the meaning of,
I highly recommend watching some previous videos I've done on these words that explain them fully.
So there will be a link for that, so feel free, if you don't know these words, to click on the link.
So now what I'm going to have you do is we are going to do a practice listening.
You are going to listen to me tell you a story about university.
You are going to look at these words, and if you hear me say the word, you're going to put a checkmark right beside the words you hear.
If you are on engVid, there's going to be a link that you can click to download these words so you can print them off and have them in front of you.
Same with on YouTube, if you're watching this off of YouTube, there will be a link you can click on in the description,
and that will take you to a place where you can download a list of these words.
Otherwise, if you don't want to do that, you can actually just copy them out by hand, just write down these words.
And then when you're ready, you can listen to me, and all you need to do is if you hear the word, you put a checkmark.
If you don't hear the word in what I'm going to say, then no checkmark.
Okay, so let's get started. So, again, put a checkmark if you hear the word.
I went to the University of Toronto. I remember when I was an undergrad, I found school very difficult, especially in my freshman year.
I guess the main problem was it was my first time away from home.
School had always come naturally to me before. I wasn't used to cramming and pulling all-nighters. I naturally had been a straight-A student.
Now I had to work hard so I wouldn't flunk.
The problem was I was terrified of my prof and my TAs.
