How lớn do Part 1

In this part, you will be given 7 short listening texts, và for each one you will have sầu a question with three pictures (A, B or C). You have sầu lớn listen lớn each recording & choose the right answer from the 3 choices.

Because the answers will always be visual, this might make it sound easy. However, you will have sầu lớn pay attention khổng lồ the details in each small picture. Here’s an example of such a question:


Question đôi mươi says that the festival was better than he thought it was going khổng lồ be. But in the text, Jaông xã said “It wasn’t as good as I thought”. So that means the answer for Question 20 is false. The statement in Question trăng tròn is not true.

For Question 21, it says “Helen bought her ticket in advance”. In advance means to bởi vì something before a certain time. In the text, the answer isn’t clear. However, Helen asks “Didn’t you book early? My ticket was much less.” This suggests that she did book her ticket earlier & got it at a cheaper price. So for question 21 the answer is true.
