IELTS Listening Exercise 9 – Under The Sun

Difficulty level: Easy

Listen to the recording and complete gaps in the text below.

Under The Sun

I’m Anna Matteo with expressions using the word “sun“.

  1. The first expression is about everything, everything under the sun. If you _________________ a store that sold many different _________________ , your advertisements could say you sell everything under the sun. This would not be _________________ true, of course. But what would advertising be without some creative descriptions?
  2. Here is _________________ example: Let’s say you are talking with a friend you have not seen for a long time. The two of you could have a lot of _________________ to do. So, you talk about everything under the sun.
  3. Under the sun is an old expression – at least 3,000 years old. It means everywhere the sun _________________ . King Solomon of Israel used it in the Bible. He _________________ that nothing under the sun is new. What has been will be again, he said, and what has been done will be done _________________ .
  4. If there is nothing new under the sun, there is nothing new anywhere. New or old, few things can be _________________ in the bright light of the sun.
