Не волнуйтесь! Don't worry, be happy!
Во-первых! Take your quiz. Напишите контрольную! (If you're in Dr. Denner's class.)Потом... Listen to the recorded letter and answer the following questions on the back of your quiz (or on a spare sheet of paper, листок бумаги.)
Sasha's family lives in a city named Иркутск, located on Lake Baikal in Siberia. Read a little about the city here before you begin.
- What does Sasha's mother teach?
- What does the father do?
- What класс (grade) is the sister in? What grade is the brother in? Are they good students?
- What's the speaker's major? What year is he in? Does he like his major?
- Where does he live? Is he happy there?
- Does Sasha know English?
- List 4 questions he asks at the end of the letter.
Now, listen to the числительные (numerals) from 100 to 1000. You should listen to them three times. It only takes a second!
Now, on the back of your контрольная, write down the telephone numbers you hear in this exercise. (Just do the first eight, through Боря.) Listen to the recording 3 times, no more!
