    Hi, Just to let you know the answer was Annecy not Nice. My teacher went through the paper afterwards with us - right at the end they say something about Lyon being bad and he says 'Nice also' and then slighly slips in 'But at Annecy they have lots of demonstrations and fireworks in the evening' - I got it wrong also.

    And to whoever said about the girl going to her aunt because she mentions 'tante' she says they couldve have stayed there but decided to rent a small house instead!

    Hopefully got a high A maybe A* if the marks are kind, hoping my other grades will bring it up!

    Yeah i thought it was Annecy. At the end what I heard was they said something about Nice then very quickly said something about Annecy and then the girl said something like "good, let's go there" and seeing as they had said Annecy more recently than Nice I assumed "there" meant Annecy.

    I seem to remember a couple of the ones in the hypermarché question were a little tricky. Anyone got any ideas?

    The hypermarché was the hardest multiple choice one,
    i had to guess 2,
    One of them said that sometimes its more expensive than markets, (I think)

    Ah, looks like my teacher was wrong then. Do you think this was harder than the June 2010/2011?

    Thats hardly fair is it? Surely its meant to be the invigilator whos in control of the tape. I think its greatly unfair that you got to rewind and replay - it defeats the purpose of a listening. If we could rewind they might as well award anyone and everyone a A*, dont you think?

    I was too sick to go in for the exam - but all my friends tell me that June '10/June '11 were so much easier and this year it was horrific.

    I think I messed up on question 9 and confused à with ou! Ah well...pretty sure number three was Nice though - I did a mock literally the night before and there was a really similar style question about going to the cinema. The girl's response was a bit hard to catch...I think she said "alors nous y allons' or something? Screw the kids if they think it's boring haha

    It was definatley Annecy. But it was confusing. Because it just said- Annecy, something about a concert, the kids will love it, we will go there. So I struggled to find the reasons. Obviously I put about the evening, but the other two were guesses.

    Nope, the answer was Nice. I asked my teacher and she had the transcript and confirmed it.
    The three reasons were: Stuff to do in the evening, Good restaurants and Good sporting facilities (something along those lines).
    Rather absurdly- I chose Annecy but I think I somehow got all the reasons right!

    Definitely got good sporting facilities and good restaurants... sure I got things in the evening too....

    ...so YAY!

    BTW in the sports hall we did it in.... SO UNCLEAR!!

    Anyone else doing it in some sort of hall have poor sound quality??

    There was also the one about mobile phones in class?
    some of the answers I can remember:
    The mobile one went Gad, the other person, Gad, Samir.
    Family Relations: the correct answers made a diamond shape - that's all I remember
    Holiday to France: (might of missed one)
    rent a house
    nice area
    Portugal
    9)a)You can put it in your pocket/You can download books on it anywhere/It doesn't use paper (any 2)
    b)Are e-readers an ecological solution or do they damage the environment? (not exactly like that but I think it's the general gist - I don't think that answer would get the mark though)
    c) something about old e-readers and I heard 12% somewhere - not sure of the answer though
    10a) You can download more than 7000 books onto one unit
    b)It encourages their children to read
    c) they would prefer to play video games
    I didn't quite say more than 7000... just said: "You can download many books onto once device"... do you think I'd get the mark??

    Was Annecy the one on the right or left? and does anyone have a rough idea what mark would receive A and what mark for A*? What UMS score is required for A* overall?

    thanks

    I put Nice for question 3. I'm sure they spoke about Nice first, then Annecy, place 3, then back to Annecy then Nice, and the girl says "c'est genial" at the end

    For the reasons I put things to do in the evening (i heard the word concert and fireworks "feu d'artifice"), good restaurants (heard something but can't remember what) and good sport facilities (that was a guess)

    Don't know if it's right but I hope it was
    reasons- correct!
