FCE paper 4: Listening

This area provides practice for the four parts of FCE Paper 4, the listening paper.

Each section below provides practice for the skills needed to answer the type of questions asked in each part. Each section should take approximately 45 minutes.

Part 1 What are they talking about?

In this section you hear people talking in different situations and answer multiple choice questions based on the listening extracts. You also practise some vocabulary related to the extracts on sport, ways of addressing people, how to give instructions politely and jobs in a company.

Part 2a Avoiding accidents

In this section you practise taking notes. First, you listen to someone talking about how to avoid accidents in the home. You then listen to a doctor talking about how to treat flu. Finally, you study vocabulary connected with medicine.

Part 2b Taking notes

In this section, you practise listening and taking notes. There are two listening exercises. First, you listen to a woman asking about a car that has been advertised and you then study some vocabulary for parts of cars. In the second listening extract, you hear a doctor talking about the causes of insomnia (sleeplessness) and how to deal with it. You then work on multi-word verbs which occur in the talk

Part 3 The Internet, students and fathers

Here you listen to people having a conversation and practise identifying who is speaking, as well as the meaning of what they are saying. You have to match one of six sentences to each speaker. There are three different listening exercises in this section.

Part 4 Keeping fit

Here you listen to people having a conversation and practise identifying who is speaking, as well as the meaning of what they are saying. There is also practice on listening to intonation.
