Listening (Dialogue A)
The following dialogue is fairly long, and so we divided it into three smaller segments for you. You may listen to each segment separately and then answer the questions based upon the segment. However, we want you to listen to the complete dialogue at least twice: once at the beginning and again at the end. Also, try answering the questions on your own before using the hints provided. Learn the following vocabulary and then follow the steps as outlined below.
Background: Two friends greet each other at a small social gathering. The second (Hani) introduces an American guest (Jack) to the first, and a conversation follows.
STEP 1: Listen to the complete dialogue at least once.
STEP 2: Listen to the initial section as many times as needed and answer the question for this section.
