Wind turbines are machines that generate electricity from wind. They are getting bigger, but this is causing more problems with how they are made. Many of the biggest wind turbines are falling down in different parts of the world, and even smaller ones are also breaking. Companies tried to make big turbines very quickly to fight climate change. This led to some manufacturing problems, which is making it hard to keep the turbines working for a long time. Experts are worried that this is becoming a big problem.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.


Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)


Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.


Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
