N3 listening practice lesson 11 – Tapescript:
Translation for Reference :
Two women are talking. What will they do after this?
Woman 1: I got the movie tickets, do you want to go with me this time? This is…
Woman 2: Oh, I really want to go to see this movie. I’m happy. The part one of this movie was very interesting.
Woman 1: I haven’t seen the part one yet.
Woman 2: Is that so… It’s better to see the part one before seeing the part two. I have the DVD of it.
Woman 1: Really? Can I borrow it?
Woman 2: Hey, why don’t you drop by my house to watch it now? Because I want to watch it again.
Woman 1: Is this alright? Then, let’s go to see this next week.
What will they do after this?
Instruction to practice:
In order to understand and make this type of lesson effectively, you can apply the following steps:
1. Catch the topic and the question :
The situation taking place here is:
Two women are talking.
The question is:
What will they do after this?
2. Note the main ideas:
In this form of listening, you need to pay attention to the words that describe the action of the two women and its order. And you should also focus on key words instead of trying to listen all the sentences then missing important words.
After listening, we have some key words as follows:
映画のチケット（えいがのちけっと）: movie ticket
今度（こんど）: this time
パートI見てない（パートIみてない）: have not seen the part one (of the movie)
DVD持ってる（DVDもってる）: to have a DVD
今から(いまから): from now
うちに寄って（うちによって）: to drop by someone’s house
3. Choosing the answer:
According to what we have noted, we can deduct:
Because the question asks about the next action of the two women, you need to pay attention to the words that describe the present.
We have listened the word [今から] (from now), so the action right after that word [うちに寄って見ていかない] (drop by a woman’s house to watch the movie) is the next action that they will do.
We can easily eliminate answer 3 and answer 4.
With answer 1 and answer 2 : The woman 1 has not seen the part 1 yet ( パートI見てない) and the woman 2 wants to watch it again (もう一度見ておきたい). Therefore, they will go home to see the part 1 after that and decided go to see the part 2 next week (来週にでも行こう).
So we choose answer 1. パートIを見る
