AEE Secrets to Real Listening Bonus 9: Hustle, Grit, and Surviving in New York City

New York City English listening lesson

Today you’ll get a sneak peak into the final module in our listening course where we bring you to New York City.

New York City is a place where talented people come to make their dreams a reality.

You’ll learn what it takes to “make it” in New York City, who “makes it” and why!

New York City is not an easy place to live but it forces you to become a better version of yourself.

It’s such a fast-paced place and there is so much competition that a lot of people don’t make it.

What issues did we interview people about in New York City:

  • 9/11 and local people’s stories about that day
  • Cost of living in New York City
  • Their favorite New York moments and what those moments meant to them
  • Making it in New York as a performer (artist, singer, actor, contortionist)
  • Misconceptions about New York City
  • Three words that describe New York City

 

In New York we met:

  • Hassan who is a budding actor and singer
  • Amazing Amy who is a contortionist and has lived in New York for 40+ years
  • Keith who is a comedian and actor who moved to NY from Vermont
  • Diego who came here from Ecuador and has made it as an art director in a gallery
  • Jaime who is from Colombia and lives in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the world
  • Asher who grew up in New York and has seen the city change over the last 3 decades

 

We can’t wait to introduce you to the New Yorkers that we met in our course which is coming soon!

Through these video lessons we’ll show you how to finally participate in English conversations to CONNECT with anyone in English.
