Step 7: Listening Comprehension:

➯ Listen to the audio version about a typical day in the life of Vanessa. See how much you can understand without reading along. It's only a little more than two minutes long, so you can listen to it a few times if necessary.

➯ Listen and read along at the same time with the French only version of the text.

➯ Read the French and English version of the text and take note of how sentence structure changes when comparing these two languages. Take note of any new vocabulary or expressions.

➯ Gap fill exercise #1 - Fill in the blanks with verbs as you listen once again to the audio recording. Check your work with the French only version of the text.

➯ Gap fill exercise #2 - Improve listening skills and comprehension of syntax while increasing your vocabulary. This time, rather than filling in the blanks with verbs, you will listen closely to all of the other words and write what's missing in the exercise. Check your work with the French only version of the text.
