Morning Joe–The Boston Marathon Bombings

Below is a video from “Morning Joe” which is a tv program in the United States where politics and current events are often discussed. This clip contains people discussing the awful and tragic events which took place last week in Boston.

If you scroll over the video, you can see that there is a transcript available so that you can read along as you listen. This is great listening practice and also a good way to learn new vocabulary. It may serve for one of your PEP activities.
