Listening: Song by Bonnie Tyler

I Need A Hero



Watch the video and do the following exercises.

Tick the words that you can hear.
Where have all good  men  man
And where are all the  goods  gods?
Where’s the sweet  street-wise Hercules
To fight  light  the rising odds?

Isn’t there a white  knight  night upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I   toss   loss  and turn and     deem   dream of what I need

Unscramble the lines of the Chorus


  He’s gotta be strong

  I need a hero

  And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight

  I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

  And he’s gotta be larger than life

  And it’s gotta be soon

  I need a hero

  I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light

And he’s gotta be fast

  He’s gotta be sure


Choose the words that you can hear.


Somewhere midnight
In my fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my 
someone reaching for me

Unscramble the weather words in brackets.

Racing on the  (ntheudr) and rising with the  (eath)
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet



Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the  (gngiinlht) splits the sea
I would swear that there’s someone somewhere
Watching me
Through the  (dwin) and the  (lichl) and the  (inar)
And the  (rtoms) and the   (lofod)
I can feel his approach
Like a fire in my blood
