FCE Listening exam practice paper 4

Here’s another listening practice activity that you’ll find in your First Certificate exam.

Before you do the practice make sure you follow these simple steps:

– read the question before the options and find the key words;
– relax and concentrate on each new text, don’t think of the one you have just done;
– on your exam you hear each speaker twice, but it’s recommended to decide on one of the options after the first listening;
– use the second listening to check that you are correct;
– if you are not sure, guess. You may have understood more than you think;
– do not listen for single words, but for the general meaning;
– don’t worry about words that you don’t know.
