Unit 3 Understanding each other Writing a letter to explain cultural misunderstandings Skills building 1: completing a text Four tips about what you should do before you listen. Read the text first so you understand the subject of the text and the type of words you are likely to hear. Try to guess the words that might be used to fill in the blanks. Look for clues in the sentences and in the words before or after the blanks. Decide if it is content words or grammar words that you are listening for. What is the first thing you need to do before listening? Why should we do this? What should we do next? How can we decide what the missing words probably are? What is the fourth thing about? What do you think we should do after we have finished a passage? (Proofread it to ensure that it makes sense and check whether there are any mistakes in it, include any spelling mistakes. ) Step 1: showing foreign visitors around Read the diary in Part A and try to guess what each of the missing words is by using the methods you have learnt in Skills building 1.
