New BBC Language Lesson Focuses on Crypto, is it Good?
The British Broadcasting Corporation has made crypto assets the subject of one of its English language classes. The decision by the national television service shows that digital currency is becoming closer than ever to normalisation in society.
As you might expect from a lesson aimed at students of the English language, the content does not exactly get to the heart of the most pressing issues in global monetary policy that might make Bitcoin attractive for some.
BBC: Teaching English with Crypto
As part of its service, the BBC offers lessons in various subjects for both school-aged and mature learners. The English language department of the broadcasting firm’s learning platform has just published a new instalment of their “” dedicated entirely to cryptocurrencies.
The crypto-focused English language lesson is aimed at intermediate learners. It features a conversation between two presenters, who discuss digital currencies in very easy to understand terms and without introducing a lot of specialist vocabulary.
Since the subject serves more as a vehicle for learners to practice their listening skills than it does a hard-hitting investigation into all-things-crypto, you can forgive the content for being basic.
