Kara, our American teaching assistant, spoke about working conditions in the US the other day in class. Here we have an interesting podcast about people who skip work and how Britain has the highest number of false sick days in Europe. Listen to it and answer: Which European country pulls the fewest sickies? Is it Latvia, Austria or Denmark?
After listening to it you can check the transcript and vocabulary.
Now confession time, have you ever pulled a sickie? Tell us!
