Listening Practice: My University

This listening practice is with a video rather than an audio recording. It is a video of Royal Holloway, University of London, which is actually where I completed my BA Hons degree. I thought you would enjoy seeing it. The main building is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen for a university.

The listening exercise is not difficult so I expect you all to get at least 5 out of 6 correct 🙂

  6. Dear Liz,
    I noticed that you don’t use full stop (period) in abbreviations. Is it acceptable? For example, you wrote – Mr instead of Mr. ; Mrs instead of Mrs. In contrast, for writing the name – JK Rowling, you used ‘J.K. Rowling’.
    Please clarify, when to use and not to use these dots.

    • There is no rule as such. IT is not necessary to use periods at all these days. I chose to use them in “J.K.Rowling” because it helps distinguish the letters – it’s easier to read. But they are not necessary and you can omit them.
