GCSE listening skills

If you follow the AQA GCSE board, the following may be of use. I have put together similar exercises from all of the GCSE higher listening materials we have to date. There are some types of exercise that are repeated e.g. news item comprehension, past/present/future, inference, etc. I have grouped them together and I will be working through them soon with my group. Strategies like looking out for distractors are well known, but inference esp. answering when the words are not provided are more difficult and need some practice. The fact that similar exercise types have appeared in all papers so far is no guarantee that this will happen this summer, but the strategies in coping with distractors, tenses, inference, answering in the target language etc. will still be there.

When using the resources, the transcript part should be hidden. I’m getting the students to fold the paper.
