Hi everyone.

Today’s listening exercise is my reading of part of a 2016 lecture delivered by Rahul Dravid, the Indian cricketer.  For those of you from cricketing countries other than India, I promise that I will give your country equal time in future posts!

Listen to the lecture by following the link below, and then answer the following questions.  Answer in no more than three words.

1. Where is Dravid’s son playing age-group cricket? ……………

2. What names might a young football player have on the back of his shirt?…………..

3. What time does a junior cricketer in India wake up in the morning? …………..

4. What has always been a tough sport to learn and teach?  ……………

5. At what age do children in India start playing cricket? ……………

6. How many children will a young cricket coach be responsible for? …………….

7. Research has shown that the first coaches of many sports stars were what kind of people? ……………

 

Should you have any trouble with following the link to the exercise below, you can find it on YouTube by searching under “IELTS Listening Exercise – Sports”.

Good luck!
