Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about the South Korean archery team and
learning the word demanding.
In the bow and arrow sport, archery, South Korea is the country to
beat in next year's Olympic Games.
South Korea came top of the medal table in archery in the last
Olympics, in Beijing.
This week BBC reporter John Sudworth has been to the South
Korean archery training centre.
Listen for how many hours a day the archers train for and listen for
the word demanding.

I don't know if you have ever tried to use a bow and arrow but
believe me the amount of tension you need just to tension the bow
like that, requires really quite a large amount of physical strength
and these guys are here 6 days a week, 6 hours a day, 300 arrows
a day. That's enormously physically demanding.

Listen again for how many hours a day the archers train for and

Demanding means something needs a lot of effort, time or skill.
The training is very physically demanding.
Well, we have learnt about the adjective demanding.
Now let's listen to some people in London using this word.
