Listening comprehension exercise November 14, 2012

Posted by Daniel Martin in General.

Here’s a little listening comprehension activity for you. Watch the first three minutes of this video story and answer -as a comment- these 3 questions:

1. What did she buy at the supermarket?

2. What happened to her on her way to the supermarket?

3. Which comment causes the argument?

Note: My advanced students are excused from doing this as they already answered the questions in class.

Come on Daniel!!! don’t be so cruel…. don’t get me down! you must take into account that perhaps I’ve lost part of my level while studying far away from there… on the other hand I’m not used to such a high level as I used to be when I studied there. Finally it could be possible that I’m not who you guess I am. I wish you a wonderful journey!!!

I would expect a C1 student like “Cholo” to get well over 40%, don’t you think?

Too difficult daniel! I’ve tried but I just got 40%.. so I can’t give you an answer; anyway I’ll keep trying, it doesn’t matter the times that I have to repeat it….

“All of the dialogue in the film is complete gibberish, but it’s designed to sound like English to foreign speakers, or native speakers that aren’t quite paying attention”

More or less I wanted to say that 😀 😀 😀 😀

I only understand “you are fucking asshole” on minute 2:44.
I just read the comments and I think that I understand the idea of this short film, sounds like english, but not english sounds. I’m not sure. this is very difficult for me.
