Does Fernando Alonso make mistakes?

F. Alonso                                                     L.  Hamilton
We’re not in a position to judge him as a driver, but we can try and find out whether he makes mistakes when he speaks English.

You’re going to listen to both Fernando Alonso  and Lewis Hamilton (pictures  above) in an interview for a TV channel. Alonso is Spanish and you should concentrate when he speaks because he might make mistakes and your job is to spot them: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation…etc. Once you’ve spotted them, write a comment on the blog (click on  Leave a Comment below) with his mistakes. Hamilton, who is English, will be answering the same questions but when you listen to him, just answer the questions on the worksheet provided .

    I think that Fernando Alonso speak very good English ( I wont to speak like him )Maybe he makes mistakes but I can’t find them.

  2. Tomás says:

    I think so, like José Manuel, always with a big humility.
    Despite of them, I think that Alonso could have the folowing mistakes:
    In the first paragraph He say “I feels very good…” and I think that would be “I feel very good…”.
    In the third paragraph he say “…all the teams are really focus…” and I think that would be “all the teams are really focusing”. Also in this paragraph the pronunciation of “…atmosphere…” is wrong.
    And in the last paragraph he said “…we can not forget the champion ___ (I didn’t understand this word) is 70 greases…” and I think that would be “…we can not forget the champion ___ are 70 greases…”
