General tips for the listening exam.
- Listen to a French station on the radio or practice tapes to improve this skill. (Your teacher may be able to record you a tape if you take a blank tape into school.)
- Read the questions carefully. This will give you a general idea of what the passage is all about.
- Listen out for key words. Don't worry if you don't understand every word.
- Don't panic if you don't understand. If you miss the meaning the first time, it will be repeated. If you miss it the second time, don't waste time worrying about it, concentrate on the next section.
