Difficulty level: Semi Hard

Here’s a quick exercise, featuring some very fast speech! But don’t worry; most native speakers don’t talk like this, and you’ll never hear such fast speech in an IELTS test. I just thought you might like a challenge!

  • Even though the _____ _____ will spend 25 years of their life asleep, there’s no scientific _____ as to why exactly we do it. One thing we know for sure: our _____ definitely think that sleep is important.
