Test your listening skills with this short clip describing a tour group's trip to an island.
Hi, everyone. My name is Jessica, and I'll be your guide today. If you just listen to me for a few minutes, I'll tell you about where we are and what we're doing. We're on the lovely island of St. Mary, and we're standing outside the tourist information building. There's also a little business here that sells sandwiches, drinks, and postcards if you want to write to your friends back home.
The history of St. Mary is connected to the castle, which you can see on the hill over there. When do you think this castle was built? Does anyone know the answer? Would you like to guess? It doesn't matter if you're wrong. Well, I'll tell you. It's 500 years old.
If you want to visit the castle while we're on the island, just follow the signs. It will take about half an hour to get there, and you will learn more about who built the castle and why. We're here for 2 hours, so you have plenty of time.
