Wicked! Upper-Intermediate Listening

Average: 3.6 (30 votes)

Wicked has a few different meanings in English. It can mean 'evil'.
E.g. "That woman is so wicked, she made me clean the bathrooms again today."
Confusingly, it can also mean the opposite, especially in England where it is slang for 'really great'.
E.g. "That roller-coaster was wicked ! Let's go on it again."

Leaving on a Jet Plane - Intermediate / Upper Intermediate

Average: 3.8 (49 votes)

Leaving on a Jet Plane is one of the English language's great emotional love songs, originally sung by the late John Denver. Practice your listening and phrasal verb skills by completing this gap-fill! I suggest listening once first, then begin completing the gap-fill while listening another two times. You do not need to listen to the whole song, just the first couple of verses.
