#2 ESL Cyber Listening Lab

On October 11th, we discussed the reasons why we are not good at listening in CALL class. They might be associated with vocabulary, accents and speed. Therefore, we were assigned to list the words that we don't know. It would definitely be the first step to improve our listening skills by expanding our vocabulary.

1. in good hands
(phrase) in the safe, competent care of someone
ex. Don't worry. You are in good hands.

2. voilà  

(int.) originally a french term "Voi la". used to say there it is!’ when you show something to someone, or something appears suddenly
ex. Voilà! i just made a cake for you.

3. butcher 
(v.) to kill or to cut without care 
(n.) a person who kills people in a cruel and violent way
ex. The authority butchered the captured soldiers.

(n.) a trick of an amusing, playful, or sometimes malicious nature.
ex. I caught Tom making prank calls to random phone numbers.

5. in charge (of)
(adj.) in control or responsible for something/someone
ex. i will be in charge of the party's decoration.
