Lis­te­ning com­pre­hen­si­on (Hör-Seh­ver­ste­hen) 133/2017


Lis­te­ning com­pre­hen­si­on is one of the core com­pe­ten­ci­es in Eng­lish lan­guage lear­ning. You usu­al­ly lis­ten to teachers, to your peers or to ly­rics (while lis­te­ning to music in your free time). You also may watch Eng­lish news or TV se­ries. Your ef­fort is to un­der­stand as much as pos­si­ble and get the most out of the audio (audio-​visual) text. Today you are going to watch (and lis­ten to) an ex­plaini­ty video that de­scri­bes basic pro­ces­ses of (eco­no­mic) glo­ba­li­sa­ti­on and work on dif­fe­rent tasks (see below).

ALL TASKS HAVE TO BE HAN­DED IN AFTER THE LES­SON ON MON­DAY (13/3/2017)! Plea­se collect them and take them to the teacher's room (Herr Breu­ers Fach)

Money makes the glo­ba­li­sed world go round
Be­fo­re you watch the video: Think about this state­ment. Do glo­ba­li­sa­ti­on and eco­no­my go hand in hand? Com­ment on the state­ment.
Watch the video (https://www.you­tube.com/watch?v=JJ0nFD19eT8) and take some notes (lis­te­ning for gist). This is your first lis­te­ning so you will not get all the in­for­ma­ti­on. Try to grasp the ge­ne­ral (or glo­bal) un­der­stan­ding of the text.
Now watch the video a se­cond time and ans­wer the mul­ti­ple choice ques­ti­ons below. Plea­se note: There may be mul­ti­ple cor­rect ans­wers.

Ex­plain the fol­lo­wing state­mentsideaswords on a se­pa­ra­te piece of paper. You can use the in­ter­net but ex­pla­na­ti­ons have to be in your own words:
  • the world as a glo­bal vil­la­ge
  • the world as a glo­bal mar­ket­place
  • out­sour­cing
  • three ex­amp­les of mul­ti­na­ti­o­nal cor­po­ra­ti­ons (glo­bal play­ers)
  • to have ac­cess to for­eign mar­kets
  • to feel over­run by glo­ba­liza­ti­on
  • ex­plo­ita­ti­on
Start andor con­ti­nue your in­di­vi­du­al vocab list (Eng­lish - Eng­lish or Eng­lish - Ger­man) on the sub­to­pic of eco­no­mic glo­ba­li­sa­ti­on. Use wordsphra­ses from the video. Below you will also find hel­pful vo­ca­bu­la­ry.
