Listening comprehension R/T – Example 2

Listening comprehension R/T – Example 2


Listen to each short story only once. Then retell it the best you can with your own words, in English.

My tips:

  • Taking notes is allowed and recommended in this section.
  • Check your understanding with the full text afterwards.
  • The examiners will ask you to speak during 45 seconds about the story you have just heard.
  • All stories are in one way or another related to aviation.

As examples, listen to the short stories below:
