  • Hi.

  • Welcome to another.

  • I'll video in this video.

  • We're going to work through mock listening Test four together.

  • If you find this video helpful, join us at the Forum else network dot com and firm or exercises like this one.

  • Visit Eilts listening blawg dot com.

  • Today we want to focus on practicing these listening strategies, so the first is to predict the answer, and this doesn't mean to actually predict what the answer is going to be.

  • It's more predicting what type of word we're going to be listening for.

  • Word or words we're going to be listening for, whether it's magic tive or now on a date, um, a number A name proper now.

  • So we want to look at the questions that were given and try to guess what sort of information will be filled in to them.

  • We want to note how the information is organized.

  • There's always an organizational pattern to every Isles listing task, So whether it's chronological or or in groups, we need to figure out how this information is Organizing.

  • This will help position us as we listen for the answers.

  • We want to note the question words that could be stated in the listening.

  • So, for example, if some of the words are in a list and we were asked to choose maybe two or three items from that list, if that's the question type to choose from a list, often these words will appear exactly as they're written in the listening, so we don't have to go searching for a synonym or anything like that.

  • Often the words Bill will be exactly as they're listed.

  • And so we want to practice this identifying strategy in the listening Today.

  • Let's go to the exam itself.

  • I will start the recording Eilts listening block dot com.

  • Mark Eilts Listening test for okay.

  • And so, as you know, there's a bit of preamble in the beginning of any aisles listing test.

  • So at this point, our test papers would be down at, uh, when the When the recording says turned a Section one, we can turn our papers up.

  • We can start focusing on previewing the questions.

  • My advice to you is to it's important to listen to what the recording is saying during this time.

  • But if you've done many practice tests before, you will more or less know what's being said.

  • So you can kind of more focus on what the question types are and start previewing them for for the exam 10 minutes to transfer your answers to an answer sheet.

  • Now turn to Section one.

  • Section one.

  • You will hear a father book a birthday party for his son at a Children's activity center.

  • First, you have some time to look at questions.

  • 1 to 7.

  • Okay, so we're looking for one word and or a number s o If we look att, the answers down here, June June, he's gonna be numbers.

  • This will be a day of the week.

  • If we look down here.

  • Four activities does fund runners offer on Sunday.

  • Okay, uh, you will see that there is an example Will likely be stated in the listing on this occasion.

  • Only the conversation relating to this will be played first.

  • Let's listen for the example.

  • Yes, I'm looking to speak to someone about booking my son's body.

  • I could do that for you, sir.

  • How many Children will be attending, please?

  • My wife has confirmed approximately 15 thus far, but we're anticipating more.

  • They will also likely be several parents.

  • Lieutenants.

  • Do I need to confirm the number of parents for the bookie?

  • Okay.

  • It depends on the type of party like to book.

  • If they want to eat with the kids and play games, then I'll need an estimate on the number.

  • The caller indicates the birthday party is for his son.

  • So Father has been written in the appropriate section.

  • Now we shall begin.

  • You should answer the questions as you listen.

  • Because you will not hear the recording a second time.

  • Listen carefully and answer questions.

  • Buddy, I could do that for you, sir.

  • How many Children will be attending, please?

  • My wife has confirmed approximately 15.

  • There's far, but we're anticipating more.

  • They will also likely be several parents and attendants.

  • Do I need to confirm the number of parents for the bookie?

  • Okay.

  • It depends on the type of party you'd like to book If they want to eat with the kids and play games.

  • Then I'll need an estimate on the number.

  • But let's check availability first.

  • What's the date and time of the party, please?

  • Oh, I'm sorry, sir, but we're booked up solid for June the 15th Uh, the next available Saturday.

  • That have for 1 p.m. party would be June 22nd.

  • Would you like me to book you in then?

  • Well, that's good.

  • Son's birthday is the 17th June.

  • My wife has already told the other parents to save the day.

  • Maybe we could ask the parents about Sunday, the sixties.

  • Do you have anything available?

  • Then way Don't run all activities on some days.

  • It will close at 4 p.m. Uh, but I can book your group in for noon.

  • If that works for you, join me to list what comes with the package.

  • Okay, we have a variety of activities open on Sunday for kids age six through 2 16 If you want a basic level package, it'll give the kids each two hours of unlimited activities, including lays attack gains, bumper cars, many put on a pizza lunch.

  • The only activity we do not offer on Sundays is the rock climbing wall.

  • Can you arrange this?

  • The maximum amount of playtime is two and 1/2 hours, followed by a meal.

  • We provide a birthday cake for an additional $25 on that feeds up to 20 Children.

  • But honestly, I don't think he would feed 15 kids and 10 adults, or I will take one so long as the kids get some, it should be fine before you hear the rest of the conversation.

  • Okay, so before we continue, let's go and review these questions and stick in the correct answers.

  • So we're coming up with one word or number wth E callers preferred date for the party now.

  • There were several dates that were thrown around there, and they finally decide on one.

  • Which date is funding his clothes at 4 p.m. The answer here is Sunday.

  • Choose four items from List A T F.

  • These sorts of lists often will be stated exactly as they're written and listening.

  • Not always, but often.

  • So she the woman on the phone, runs through four items that are included.

  • She mentions the rock climbing wall, but she said that this would not be available on Sunday.

  • She does not mention basketball, so the answer's Here are a, C, D and F answers here in C d E f.

  • And there the man starts to talk about other food options.

  • But, um, this is information that we don't need to answer this question.

  • So the answers are A B and E.

  • Let's continue.

  • That is the end of section one.

  • You now have half a minute to check your answers.

  • We're not gonna do that.

  • We're gonna continue on to section two to preview here, so choose no more than three words for each answer.

  • Spectral bat details.

  • Okay.

  • Listening to information about an animal located in somewhere in America can live in probably a climate, something like that very similar to the vampire bat.

  • But the vampire of Spectrum Bat does not probably a verb hunts using its olfactory system, otherwise known as a key word here.

  • This will appear in the listening olfactory typically feeds on and size or section two.

  • You will hear a nature discussion about the spectral bat.

  • First, you have some time to look at questions 11 to 15 probably a word to do with its size.

  • Number 15.

  • Uh, okay, and then we're gonna get more time to look at six anyway.

  • We have time.

  • Let's look at them now.

  • Label the spectrum, but dimensions the diagram.

  • These will likely they will be.

  • Dimensions, probably in centimeters or inches will have to listen for those.

  • Now listen carefully and answer questions.

  • 11 to 15.

  • Right, everyone, gather around, Please.

  • Let's get this week's nature group discussion started.

  • Picture a dense forest in Mexico in the dead of night.

  • A thick, warm air hangs is a predator calculators attack from the bow of a tree.

  • In silence, the predator launches itself down with towards the ground, colliding inches above the grass.

  • With its three foot wingspan with precision, it snatches an unsuspecting mouse and its clothes and waste back up into the dark trees.

  • The night returns to dead silence and a spectral bad begins the feet I shouldn't have kissed.

  • I'm going to talk this week about a creature that it's a little known, this spectral bed or van from spectrum as it's biologically classified.

  • The spectral bet is the largest species of bat in North and South America, generally localized in southern Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, northern Brazil and the island of Trinidad, but not Tobago.

  • Strangely enough, the special bat tends to inhabit hollow trees, caves or rock crevices, and it's even known to nest in man made structures as foragers.

  • This species of bat has acclimatized itself to several different habitats, such as dance floor environments like forests, swamps and marshy areas.

  • It's diet, which will discuss in a second, is equally very.

  • The spectral bat is commonly confused with a vampire bat, although the two species resemble each other physically, they have several other differences, the most prominent being that the spectral bet does not drink the blood of its prey.

  • Spectral bands, a patient hunters and use their highly developed old factual system, otherwise known as a sense of smell to pinpoint precisely where their prey located on the forest floor in the dead of night.

  • In fact, spectral beds has such skilled hunters that their attack success rate is among the highest of all mammals in South America.

  • Feeding on animals in size or smaller, the special bat typically uses its clothes and yours to crush the bodies of its pride.

  • Pride of consuming it's done is made up predominantly.

  • If other bat spurts small red, it's amphibians and lizards.

  • Before you hear the rest of the talk, you have some time to look at questions.

  • OK, let's go over.

  • The answer's very quickly for this section, spectra about details located in And this was a very straightforward answer.

  • North and South America can live in, I believe, he says.

  • It has several different habitats that that it's, uh, it can live in.

  • So a word that would fit here would be varied.

  • Varied environments very similar to the vampire bat with vampire spectrum does not, and you probably caught it drink blood hunting using its olfactory system.

  • You heard that keyword in the listening, and then he goes on to explain that this is a word that means the sense of smell.

  • And we knew that this was going to be a noun because we had typically feeds on animals equal in size.

  • Or we knew it was gonna be something about size smaller.

  • And then he shares information that we don't need.

  • It eats small lizards and eats other bats.

  • Okay, let's continue 16 to 20.

  • Okay.

  • Previewing 16 to 20.

  • We already talked about those.

  • Let's look at these ones, right?

  • That correct letter A B C D e.

  • Next questions.

  • Okay, Dark orange or resting color.

  • Now these look like different parts of the batch body for a rounded ares wings memory located between its legs used by males to keep mates and offspring warm offspring means it's babies.

  • Mates means the animal that it has produced the babies with.

  • So looks like we'll have to match these body parts with these descriptions.

  • Now, listen, announce a question 16 to 20 as I live it, too.

  • In my intro, the van from Spectrum has a wingspan that can extend up to three things at a body length of 6 to 8 inches.

  • The very short, stubby fair on the other part of its body is generally dark or chestnut brown or rust orange in color.

  • It has rounded large years and a long, narrow muzzle, but its most distinguishable by its land shaped nose.

  • Leif, unlike many other species about the spectral bat, has a flap of membrane between its legs instead of a tail.

  • Spectral bets might funds for years and typically only produce a single pub.

  • Both had also attended to their offspring and will habitually sleep together with the wings of the male, enveloping the mother and her young.

  • Similarly, both parents will assist in the feeling routine while roosting and will continue to do so until the young reaches full independence.

  • Most birds have been recorded to occur between May and July, which correlates with the transition from try two rainy seasons.

  • The van from Spectrum is really preyed upon by other animals.

  • All those certain snake species have been know to hunt babies spectral bets from the nest.

  • By far the most major cause of the decline in spectral bad numbers is climate change and ecosystem destruction Shooter human activity.
