TED Talks–Deep sea diving… in a wheelchair

We have posted TED Talks before which have been interesting and inspirational. This one is no different. Sue Austin, who has been in a wheelchair for 16 years, has learned to use it to her advantage and now explores the underwater world using one! This is a fascinating story and well worth 10 minutes of your time.

Sue speaks in an English accent too so this as a good listening practice for any of you who speak with Brits at work.

Finally, there is a transcript available. Under the video on the website, you can choose to read what she said by selecting the “transcripts” tag and then selecting “English.”

Enjoy and Happy Monday!!
