This programme is all about expressions you can use when you want to tell someone that you disagree with them (you think what they are saying is wrong).
We do this with the help of the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair. He was recently interviewed by a BBC journalist and there were lots of phrases expressing disagreement in the conversation!
After you have listened to the programme, why not get some more practice using the quizzes below.
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT?
Now it's time for you to have a go at practising the language we've looked at in this programme. Part A is a short listening activity and part B is a matching exercise. Good luck!
