Listening skills

TEST YOUR LISTENING SKILLS

Listen to a short news report or any discussion on a current situation of interest (your teacher will prepare a tape recording for you).

Summarise the report or discussions by writing down three points that you regard as most important.

Some tips before you start:

  • Concentrate all the time.
  • Do not allow your thoughts to wander.
  • Think about what you are hearing.
  • Try to identify the main ideas.
  • Write down key words or phrases.

Make a summary:

LO 1.5
  • Let’s do the exercise one more time. This time, indicate which of the following made you decide on each of the main points: content of the report, the choice of words, or voice tone.

TRY AGAIN

Ask your teacher to play a recording of a longer report or discussion. Try to write down five points this time.

A LAST TRY

Ask your teacher to play an even longer recording and try to write down seven points.

  • Are you satisfied or do you need more practice?
  • Which of the tips for writing summaries do you still need to concentrate on?
