Listening Comprehension Test

For 4th form students


Text 1. Mark And His Friends
Hi, my name is Mark and I’m from London, England. London's great! It's got a
fantastic zoo and lots of amazing museums and parks. You can do lots of things here. I
usually go to a football match on Saturday afternoons. My friend Rob plays for the
school football team. He's brilliant!
My friends and I sometimes go to the ice rink or the cinema and every Wednesday
we go to an indoor swimming pool. Rob doesn't like swimming under water and I don't
like diving.
We’ve got a new girl in our class. Her name is Kim. She's from London but her
mother is from Scotland and her father is from Wales. A lot of Londoners have got
parents from other parts of Great Britain and from other countries. Rob's dad is Italian
and Rob often visits his grandparents in Italy. Lucky him!
My neighbour Jenny doesn't go to our school now. She's in Australia! Her dad's
got a new job in Melbourne. She doesn't write letters to us - she sends emails or makes
video calls!

Text 2. Our School Year


We start school at the beginning of September. It's autumn but it's sometimes very
sunny. At the end of autumn it's usually cold and windy. It's sometimes stormy and it's
often cloudy and rainy, too. There's a special day in autumn – November 5th – Guy
Fawkes' Day. On this day we make a Guy – a man – from newspapers and clothes. Then
we burn him on a bonfire and watch fireworks.
Winter is a good season! I play football for the school team. There's a match every
Saturday and our team usually wins. It's always cold in winter and it's sometimes snowy,
too. We can't play football then.
I like spring. It's sometimes rainy but it's usually sunny – and we have a good time
at school! We always go on school trips in spring. We visit interesting places – castles
and take sandwiches for lunch.
Summer is my favourite season. It's usually sunny and hot. We always have Sports
Day in June. Vicki's a great runner and she usually wins the class race. The school year
ends in the middle of July and then summer holidays start!
