Did you know your body is 75 percent water, and also, your brain is 80 percent water. Thats why if you don't drink anything in 3 days, you may die.

Yes I do. For example, did you know that you can may die if you do not drink water for 3 days, buy you'll survive if you do not eat for 3 days.
It happens because our body is 75 percent of water, so, we need water to survive before food.

One interesting fact about human body is that our brain generates electricity that can easily light a small light bulb .
When we are awake our brain generates electricity in the amount of 15-25 watts.

It was interesting to listen to the dialog. I knew some facts but it always interesting to find out in foreign language and remind to myself what a wonderful creatures we are - humans. And whitch secrets keeps our body. I think scientists will open a huge of abilities of human's organizm in the future!)

Our body can almost take care of every sickness we get for instance if we get a cold we don't neceserey need to treat it, usually our body will treat the disease.

Hi ali,

There isn't a video on this page - just audio to help you practise your listening.

Have you tried right clicking on the word 'download'? I've just checked it and it works fine for me, so I think the problem must be a local one on your computer.

Can you try on another computer or device, or try a different browser? You can also try to 'clear the cache' on your browser then try again.

I hope that helps!

Best wishes,

I'm interested in the differences between nought and zero. Could you tell me when we should use 'nought' and when we should use 'zero' please?

Intestinum is the second brain of a human body because it controls immune systems.

Hi medo77. Thanks for reporting the problem. I've just tried it, and the mp3 plays ok for me. Downloading also works ok. Perhaps there was a temporary problem but it seems to be working again now.

Could you try it again and let us know if it still doesn't work? You can also try using a different web browser - sometimes that fixes the problem.

I don't know especially about human body but i can google it. I know only that we have huge number of bacteria in our body. This count is impossible to imagine. Of course it's not good but in some animals bacteria are ok because of digest food.

My name is Izaro. I am named after an island on the Basque Coast. It is a very beautiful special place. I think I am lucky to have my name.

I had some idea about bacteria and their function in our body, for example the drugs in the laboratory are made of bacteria for attack sickness
