OET Transcription Training 4

What is Transcription?

You lose your Listening Exam because of three reasons:

  1. You do not understand the audios (L3)
  2. You do not understand word meanings (L1)
  3. You cannot decide the answers (Melons)

When the first issue is not solved, you cannot expect to start with Listening Tests.

This is an activity to enhance your listening skills. By this, you:

  1. Listen to the following audios.
  2. Write down the complete transcript (write down every word as you hear)
  3. In case you need to listen again, play again.
  4. You can listen to the audios end number of time.

NB: During the real OET Listening Test you are not allowed to listen to the audio more than once.

Get Ready!

  • Get your pen / pencil and paper.
  • Attach your headphone / earphone.
  • Listen to the audios below and write down the transcripts.

NB: These audios do not have their transcripts.
