LAW & POLITICS (exercises by Prof. Dominique Vinet)

audio-based matching & gap-fill exercises (B2-C1, a few B1)
Exercises made with Hot Potatoes© and soundtracks from Voice Of America
To play the soundtracks you need a sound card and Windows Media or
RealPlayer
  

Chaque exercice est constitué d'une bande son associée à un exercice de compréhension suivi d'une question ouverte à laquelle il faut répondre.
Les items des exercices suivent le défilement de la bande son. La première question ou le premier trou porte sur le début du texte pour simplifier la compréhension.
La bande son peut être interrompue ; on peut revenir en arrière grâce au curseur ou repartir au début en utilisant la touche arrêt.
Le temps n'est limité que pour l'exercice de compréhension, pas pour la réponse à la question ouverte. Ne vous préoccupez pas de l'annonce de fin du temps imparti si vous avez fini l'exercice.
Vous pouvez toujours écouter la bande son avant ou pendant la rédaction de la réponse.
