Dear students, you will hear people talking in eight different situations. For question 1 - 8, choose the best answer (A, B or C).
1. Look at the direct question and stem (e.g. Who is the woman?) and underline the key words.
2. When you first hear the recording, try to think of an answer to each question in your own words. Then choose (from A, B or C) the option most like your answer.
3. If you're still not sure which is the correct answer, cross out any you are sure are wrong and guess.
4. When the recording has finished and you have chosen your answer, forget about that question and concentrate on the next one.
