Each part is heard twice in the exam.
Part 1 Tips
Students look at a picture with different people doing various
activities. There are seven names around the edge (all names
feature in the YLE wordlists). Students listen to a dialogue about
the different people in the picture and draw a line from the names
to the appropriate people. There is one name they do not need to
Test focus: listening for lexical items and phrases
Find pictures (which are appropriate to Flyers level) showing
people in different situations. Get students to work in pairs. One
student makes statements about the people in the pictures and the
other decides whether this information is correct or incorrect.
Alternatively, give students a photocopy of a basic scene, e.g. a
shopping street, the countryside, etc. and give them instructions
about where to draw different people into the scene, describing the
people, their clothes and their position in the picture. You should
have the correct version of the picture which shows the people you
have been describing. Then ask students to compare their picture
Tips for the test
Listen carefully for the clues telling you which person matches
which name, e.g. there may be two people doing the same thing but
only one, for example, is wearing a jacket.
You must draw a line from the names while you listen to one long
conversation. Make sure that the line you draw is straight and very
clear to see.
Part 2 Tips
Students complete a form, e.g.an invitation or a notebook,
prompted by words provided from the wordlists. They listen and fill
in missing words on the form.
Test focus: basic information e.g. lexical items, personal
information, making arrangements
Get pairs of students to write mini-dialogues using words from
the wordlist. Check the dialogues and get the students to record
them. Ask the students to write out their dialogues leaving gaps
for nouns, names and numbers, if possible. Get students to swap
dialogues and try to complete each others exercises.
You could also try writing a list of peoples names and different
places on the board. Make sure the words are similar and contain
letters which can cause confusion for students, e.g. y and i. Spell
some of the names and get students to write down the words youre
spelling. Then do the exercise again without the words on the board
to help them.
Tips for the test
Look carefully at the missing information before you listen, so
that you know what information you have to listen for. Be careful
sometimes the people talking on the recording will change or
correct the information, so listen to everything to say. Make sure
you write the correct information.
Make sure you know your alphabet and numbers well. You often
have to write a name which will be spelt out for you. You may also
have to write the numbers (digits, not words) for a telephone
