    That is all part of learning English. Listen to each of them several times, writing down what you do understand as you do it.

    If there is a part that you really cannot make sense of, then provide the transcript of that part, indicating where you have a problem, as well as the link.

    A series of events occurred over 200 years ago that brought about huge changes in the way that people lived. That was the time that fast, power driven machines started to do the work that until then had only been done by human hands.
    Now it's over to you.

    Re: What does it say ?

    True or false ?

    That's what I understood for the three:

    A series of events occured over 200 years ago that brought about huge changes in the way that people lived.
    That was the time when fast, power driven machines started to do the work that upon till that time, had only been done by human hands.
    It was when the first big factories where built to house workers and the machines they operated.
    It was when the production of manufactured goods increased to a miracle, when the lives of human beings first started to be regulated by clocks and factory bells.
    It was also when rural populations declined as people headed to factories to find a steady work, when cities rapidly grew and when pollution of the environment began to occur at a massive scale.
    [FONT='Arial','sans-serif']Taken together, these events started the world’s first industrial revolution[/FONT]
