Steve Jobs


The first time I watched this speech I was most impressed and I decided to prepare this interactive listening exercise which I have now been using for years. Now, after his death, it means even more to me. I have been listening to this speech today again and I can’t avoid feeling he was a visionary, somebody whose advice in this speech I should follow. It is so deep, so true, I  think he really teaches us a lesson. Besides,  it is not only what he says, but the way he delivers his speech that struck me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and find the exercise useful. Just click on the image to get started.

Life is so short we should make the most of it.

I am looking forward to reading everybody’s comments.

Finally, this

amazing exercise

: Now you can listen to Steve, choose whether you want to follow with subtitles or without them , then click on “autoplay” for the video to stop after each line so that you record yourself, compare your recording with Steve’s, study pronunciation word by word, sound by sound, learn vocabulary, practice vocabulary related to the video. What else can you ask for? just click on the image
