Sample Lesson: Aural Exam

 

The aural exam is worth 20% and is broken into five parts; Section 1 has three different speakers with a question or two assigned to each speaker, Section 2 is an interview, Section 3 is a conversation, Section 4 is two speakers with more difficult questions assigned to each of them than in Section 1, and Section 5 is a news segment.

The key to the aural exam is practice and recognising the question patterns. Section 5 is arguably the most difficult section on this paper as it is quite unpredictable and therefore requires vast vocabulary.
