English Listening Practice About Big Life And Death Questions Ep 568
English language learners, especially people new to our way of learning, often ask what kind of English listening practice do I recommend listening to. The answer I nearly always give is to listen to something that interests you, something you would listen to in your own native language. Engaging and wanting to listen and hear the conversation is one of the biggest boosts you can give to your English listening practice. As you can guess, I’m back from my short Swiss holiday and it’s back to the business of great English language content. Today’s podcast is a juicy topic and should definitely make you stop and think!
You’ve probably noticed that the costs of just about everything is going up. This is true of the costs of running Adept English. If you like what we do and you would like us to continue making great English language listening content, then please help us with a donation or by buying one of our great English language courses. Thank you.
There are a lot of “big” questions in our lives; What makes us happy? What is love? Where do we come from? What is our purpose? And you may not think it just now, but up there at the top of the "life big question list" is, What happens when I die?
Most of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about death. We are too young for it to seem relevant, or old enough that it scares us into not wanting to think about it. Unfortunately, death is one of the few guaranteed outcomes in our lives and it’s probably worth thinking about. For many people, religion and their beliefs help deal with the unknown. But what comfort is there for everyone else? Well, scientists are collecting some interesting and hopeful evidence that there is something beyond death. That should give some comfort to everyone, and I imagine the believers will smile and say, “I told you so...”.
