Strategies to face the Listening exam

    • You will have some time to look at the questions
    • Read as much as you can in that time and underline keywords
    • As you listen for the first time, mark the options that you think are correct
    • Use the second listening to check your answers

Breaking the questions down

Look at each question and try to underline the main words- Those that tell you what the focus of the question is. If you ask me, you should try to identify the words that tell you “who”, “what” and “which thing”. For example- In a question that goes:

  • Why is Raimon writing this handout? I would underline "why" “Raimon” and “writing”.

Breaking the answers down

Do the same thing for the answers- Try to pay attention to the main point of the answer but also to words that make the options different. These words are usually adverbs- As you can see in the example, the sentence is the same and it’s the adverb that tells the options apart.

  • The answers:
    • It’s always green
    • It’s sometimes green
    • It’s often green
    • It’s never green.

Grammar and vocabulary

El millor que podeu fer es revisar els vostres apunts, els llibres de text i els exercicis del Burlington Digital.
