Listening B1 intermediate exercise

listening-comprension-lectora-b1-intermediate-intermedio-vocabulary-vocabulario-flashcards-tarjetas-ejercicio-exercise.

Herewith we propose a listening B1 intermediate exercise, including several topics.

We made a list of 104 words that can be revised before or after the listening. These words are in a list and also in an electronic flashcard application.

Checking these words will help you revise the topics related to the different texts included in the exam.

It is very effective to learn vocabulary and then check its meaning in context and see how the words and expressions behave together with other words (in context, with prepositions, links…).

How to carry out this Listening B1 intermediate exercise if you are a student

If you are a student:

a) Check the list of vocabulary bellow and try to guess the English meaning without looking. You can check the list at the bottom of this post, or you can use the online flashcards we created here.

b) Carry out the listening past paper:

  • Do the whole paper.
  • If you are still learning topics: Use only the texts of the topics you are familiar with, or
  • Do the whole exercise, allow yourself to check and take notes in the list of vocabulary.

You can find the past paper here: texto, and the sound track “here

c) Check the solutions: “soluciones

d) Check the vocabulary again. Now try to guess the Spanish word or expression looking at the English word in the list or cards vocabulary.

How to carry out this Listening B1 intermediate exercise if you are a teacher/tutor

On the other hand, if you are a teacher you could:

a) Carry out any previous exercise to activate the vocabulary and expressions included in the text:

  • Using this list in flashcards, games, etc.
  • Asking the students to revise the list as homework
  • Asking the students to work in groups testing the peers

b) Depending on which topic you are working with in the classroom, choose only the questions/texts in the exercise related to it. Then you should choose only part of the vocabulary and text, solutions: medio ambiente, transporte, trabajo, etc. also related to the topic and text.

c) As homework you could work with the vocabulary asking the students to write a text with the vocabulary.
