Listen to Benjamin Zephaniah's poem 'Talking Turkeys' and choose the best option.

The poem was written in a Caribbean variety of English and has been adapted to Standard British only for educational purposes as some students of English may find it hard to understand. I highly recommend reading the poem in its original version so as to get a good taste of the author's poetry. At the end of the activity you will find a link to Benjamin Zephaniah's website. I really hope you enjoy the poem as much as I do.
