Hello. Welcome again to Study English, IELTS preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

0:20

Today we'll look at some words that cause a lot of confusion - the relative pronouns

0:26

'that', 'which' and 'who', and then we'll do some pronunciation practice.

0:30

But first, let's listen to some people talk about a very dangerous tourist attraction

0:36

from Australia's Northern Territory.

0:41

People have always been fascinated with death. Most of the mysteries that you see on television,

0:46

the films that you see, involve murder in one kind or another. Crocodiles are one of

0:50

the last remaining dinosaurs and the idea of a crocodile coming out of the water and

0:54

grabbing somebody is absolutely riveting.

1:33

So he thinks people may actually be attracted to the Northern Territory because of the dangerous

1:38

1:40

But now we're going to leave the crocodiles, and talk about something else that can be

1:44

dangerous - the relative pronouns 'who', 'which' and 'that'.

1:49

Listen for some relative pronouns here.

1:54

People have always been fascinated with death. Most of the mysteries that you see on TV,

1:58

the films that you see, involve murder of one kind or another.

2:02

I read about the death of the German tourist who was taken by a crocodile.

2:08

Most of the mysteries 'that' you see on TV involve murders.

2:14

I read about the death of the tourist 'who' was taken by a crocodile.

2:19

Relative pronouns are used to introduce relative clauses.

2:23

They give more information about a subject.

2:27

The subject here is 'mysteries'.

2:30

The 'that clause' gives us more information about the subject - 'the mysteries t
