Listening: Birth of good ideas

In IELTS, it is usually a good idea to listen to English, not just for IELTS examination but the general English that we come across in real life.

I always suggest my students to learn new words by watching some exciting videos with such animation and here today, I’m posting one such video which I actually used in one of my classes. This video is short and informative and more importantly, candidates find it interesting.
