Instructions: Listen carefully and put the locations where he lost his wallet in the correct order. □ a night club □ at a supermarket □ a small convenient store □ in a taxi cab Basic Megan: This audio clip is great for looking for facts and sequence. Since this is a first listening, all students need to do is find the correct order. Jennifer: Checking enables basic listeners to stay focused on key information.
Instructions: listen again and match the location with how the man lost his wallet. □ a night club (A) He bought ice cream and left it on the counter. □ a small convenient store (B) His wallet slipped out of his pocket. □ at a supermarket (C) He left his wallet in a supermarket because he was in a busy station. □ in a taxi cab (D) He drank too much and left it on the counter.
