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!
Fill the gaps in the transcript below:
- The need to sleep is one of the strongest _____ _____ we have, one of the few that we really can’t control; and the fact is, you can die faster from _____ _____ than _____ _____. So it is time to investigate the science behind this thing that we do for a _____ of our lives.
- 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.
Practice IELTS listening exercises more and more to improve your listening skills. On the real test, you will hear the recording only once and listening questions get increasingly difficult.
Practising different types of listening questions separately will help you to develop yourself with specific techniques for that kind of questions in the IELTS listening test.
