Understanding dialogues

Average: 3.1 (102 votes)

These are two simple listening activities which test students' understanding of two dialogues.

Francisco Barron

Both activities can be used with low level students using the same procedure below.


  • Make copies of the worksheets and scripts.
  • Download the audio recordings.


  • Hand out the worksheet and check that your students understand the task.
  • Play the recording once, then ask the students to check their answers in pairs.
  • Play the recording again one or two more times as needed.
  • Hand out the script and ask the students to read and check their answers against it.
  • Clarify the correct answers (activity 1: F, T, T, F, T, F; activity 2: T, F, T, F, F)

You can follow this up by putting your students in pairs to practise the conversations.
