#1268 Coming Up On TDES, Man Survives Grand Canyon Fall, Transcribing Audio

Show 1268 Monday 9 August
Watch today's show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.

I thought I’d start out today by telling you a bit about what’s coming up on the show.

The studio tdes crew recently visited a city called Hamilton in New Zealand.

And while we were there we interviewed some people in the street and asked them what they thought of the city. So that’s coming up in Question Time this week.

And next week on The Daily English Show we have a guest.

We’ve had a bit of a break from Monday Guest recently … but I am very excited to announce that we’re starting that again. And our guest next week is a New Zealander who was born in India.


The Grand Canyon is a canyon in Arizona in the United States.
It’s a popular tourist destination.
Wikipedia says Grand Canyon National Park attracts about five million visitors per year.
Last week an 18-year-old French tourist was taking pictures near the rim of the canyon, when he slipped and fell 23 metres.
The man survived and was treated for wrist, ankle and neck injuries.

And that was Stick News for Monday the 9th of August.
Kia ora.
