Geographical words - listening lesson 3

This week I want to have a closer look at the BBC's Learning English website.
One of their regular items is The Flatmates. You can listen to a short episode (just over a minute) and also do a quiz and some reading.
This particular episode (204) looks at geographical vocabulary. On the right you can see links for the episode and quiz as well as downloads of the material.

For more practice with geographical words, try the geography crossword, or the geographical words vocabulary lesson.
