Time 100 most influential people

Self-study activity: This may be a more difficult than usual listening task for Intermediate 2 students, but as the June exam is getting closer and closer we must do as much practice as we can get.

Watch this MSNBC video clip about Time magazine's pick of the most influencing people in the world in 2011 and try to understand the reasons why the following people have been selected:

Kate Middleton and Will
Mark Wahlberg
Justin Bieber
Oprah Winfrey
Gabby Giffords
Amy Chua

Remember that a lot of MSNBC video clips have subtitles and a transcript available, and although they do not transcribe 100% of the content, they give us an approximate picture of what is being said on the clips. You can read the transcript for this video clip here.
