Questions for Interview "Schools Grow Electronic Eyes"
This is a quiz to test your listening.
There is a link below to an interview from a well known news site in the Sates called "Wired News". (N.B. This is content from outside actionenglish.com). You can listen to the clip and answer the quiz questions below.
The aim of the quiz is to find out the secret word by clicking on the button at the bottom of the page. However (!) you will only be able to find out the word if you answer all of the questions correctly. To make it more difficult the quiz will only allow you to have one try at each question. If you get more than one wrong you will have to start again (use your "Refresh" button). Good luck!
