Tourists rescued from Scottish mountain: BBC News Review 2022

June 17, 2022



Neil and Georgina teach you the language the world’s media is using to discuss this news story. Some tourists have been rescued from a Scottish mountain. They had a lucky escape after getting stuck on Britain’s highest mountain in Scotland in freezing weather.

The story:
The group of four were found by Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team in an ice-bound gully. The team said they could easily have fallen hundreds of feet. They did not have ice axes or crampons, which are essential for winter climbing. They had no map, and three of them were wearing trainers.

Vocabulary:
clowns
people who behave in a silly way
• Stop driving like a clown – you’ll get us killed!
• The kids were clowning around instead of cleaning their room.

bunch
group of things of the same type gathered together
• I met a bunch of mates for dinner last night.
• There was a bunch of rowdy teenagers at the party.

cut them some slack
be less critical of them
• We need to cut him some slack for his lateness. He has a young baby.
• Rob ate the last biscuit, but I cut him some slack as he’s hungry!

    1. He was clowning at the classroom. He threw away all the chairs in the classroom!
    2. A bunch of people was doing demonstration against new regulation about ojek at the city centre yesterday.
    3. We need to cut his some slack for that bad proposal. He was doing it alone. We need more people to help him.

  27. Let me shake you hand the best team BBC

  28. Very important clawns.silly

  29. I think subtitle for the whole video would be helpful for English learners.

  30. Thank you.

  31. People should not only cut others some slack, but they shouldn't also critisize them with insulting oder sarcastic words.Regardless of the age of the climbers, we can emagine that they were in panic.

  32. Mountains aren't just funny – they are hill areas.

    Thanks a bunch BBC Learning English, as Neil said before in "Thanks… '2 million'? ☺️☺️☺️" video.

  34. Psychologists say that we should cut teenagers some slack. If we cut them some slack. They will stop clowning but unfortunately only bunch of parents cut them some slack.
