Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Special – United States Visa Interview Questionnaire

Three of my students had gone in to take an interview at the United States Embassy in Bangkok.  Two of them passed and one of them failed.  How did she fail? Well, the common excuse is “he spoke to fast.”  However, that’s exactly what happened.  She wasn’t able to pick up the -wh question’; therefore, it lead to her answering the question wrong and by the second question came, it was over. She lost.  So, this podcast will feature me saying the questions at 1.0 speed (natural English speed), and the questions are just for extra practice.
