This exercise is designed to give you practice identifying very specific information, like numbers, times, places and statistics. This kind of listening is important in everyday life, but also for exams such as IELTS. Please note – if you are writing a number, use numbers instead of words (e.g. write 10 instead of ten).

This clip is from episode 258 of the No Such Thing as a Fish podcast, a very funny podcast about interesting facts.

This section of the podcast is about the problem of leaks.

Listen as many times as you need to, and see how quickly you can correctly identify all the missing information. Good luck!
