Micro-listening #27

Micro-listenings are quick dictations and drills to help you develop your listening skills.

This exercise is designed to give you practice identifying very specific information, like numbers, times, places and statistics. This kind of listening is important in everyday life, but also for exams such as IELTS.

Listen as many times as you need to, and see how quickly you can correctly identify all the missing information. Good luck!

Please note - if you are writing a number, use numbers instead of words (e.g. write 10 instead of ten).
