Robbery | Listening Exercise

Scrambled Eggs Scuola di Inglese welcomes you to our blog! We have been teaching English in a beautiful location next to the Navigli for many years now, and we know that if a student would really like to progress with their language it is essential that they do regular study at home as well as in the classroom. We hope you like the listening exercise about a bank robbery below and you can make a habit of practicing a little at home every day!

While bank robberies make for great movie plots, the robbers rarely get away with their crimes! Once they are accused, the police quickly begin to investigate and the criminals are often convicted within weeks!

In todays blog, we are going to listen to two people talking about a bank robbery and the process of the criminal investigation!

Now try the following exercises to practice and improve your skills.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is asking Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores. Their reason? National security concerns surrounding TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance.

In a letter to the CEOs of Apple and Google, the FCC Commissioner described ByteDance as “required by law to comply with [Chinese government] surveillance demands.” The commissioner, citing a new report, said that ByteDance’s Chinese staff accessed US TikTok users’ data on multiple occasions.

US officials have expressed concerns that Chinese government access to US users’ data or communications could put national security at risk. The FCC plays no role in regulating internet-based services such as app stores. Previous attempts by the US government to ban TikTok from US app stores have been unsuccessful.

The same day as the report, TikTok announced that it had migrated its US user data to cloud servers in the United States. They also stated that they would eventually be deleting backups of its US user data from its own servers.

The FCC Commissioner responded that he was not assured by the announcement because “it says nothing about where that data can be accessed from.”
