You will hear a short lecture. Write a summary for a fellow student who was not present at the lecture. You should write 50-70 words.

(You will have 10 minutes to finish this task. Your response will be judged on the quality of your writing and on how well your response presents the key points presented in the lecture.)



‘Make sure you summarize the main point and include the supporting points.’

‘Remember to check grammar, spelling and punctuation.’

Your grammar, vocabulary and spelling should be accurate. Leave one or two minutes at the end to check your summary. Have you used the right tenses? Have you started each sentence with a capital letter, used commas in lists and ended with a full stop?

Your summary should include the main point(s) and important supporting points. When you are summarizing research or an experiment, note down the key stages, paying less attention to examples or minor details.
