You can also get the vocabulary definitions in the PDF and you'll probably learn some new vocabulary words in the article too.
I've finally recorded the audio (a few days late because I've had a bad cold and was coughing every time I tried to speak... I'm a bit better but my voice still sounds hoarse. Sorry!)
