How to Ask for Clarification

Note: Being able to ask for clarification when you don't understand is actually a very good listening skill! (Offline)


Useful questions and statements to elicit more information: LISTEN 

  1. I'm sorry, what did you say?
  2. Could you repeat that please?
  3. Pardon?
  4. I'm sorry, I didn't hear what you said.
  5. You want to do what?

Homework:  Study for your test on the three sounds of the final -s.  Study your vocabulary for Week 2 on the glossary page.  Test is on Tuesday the 15th. 


Retest: If you failed the listening test, you will be given the opportunity to retest.  There is a time limitation to the retesting, so if you are absent, you may miss the opportunity to do so. 


Test on Week 2


Week 2 Listening Test: (Paper Test) There are 3 versions of the test.  Place the word in the right column according to the final -s sound.  Half of the  words are from the list that we worked on for homework and the other half are new words.  You will also have vocabulary words from week 2 on the test.  Make sure you know how to spell them, say them, and add the proper final -s sounds.  Please do not talk during the class.  When you are finished, pass you test to the teacher.  Good luck!


Homework:  Listen to the Listening Tools Page
