2. Glance through the SET of questions for which you will be hearing the tape.

3.Read the questions & find out what SPECIFIC information is required (name, place, date, number etc)

4. Circle key words (Clue/trigger words)

5. When the tape plays listen intently when you think your specific information will come.


Q 1-5

1. Kevin is arriving London at __________

2. Dave will be waiting for Kevin at __________

3. Kevin will be wearing a ___________

4. Dave will be accompanied by ______________

5. Kevin is coming for______________

It is obvious from above that the key word for 1 is at & you will be writing TIME.

In 2 you will write a PLACE. In 3 CLOTHES, in 4 PERSON ACCOMPANYING DAVE & in 5 PURPOSE of visit. So you have already guessed what to listen for!
