This page has several ESL eating out listening exercises for you to do. They will help you get used to listening to spoken eating out vocabulary being used so that you will be able to understand when people speak to you.
There are four tasks on this page and in each of them you need to listen to recordings of a native English speaker and then answer the questions. The more you can practice listening to and understanding English being spoken by a native speaker now, the better you will be able to manage in the future. If you need any help understanding the spoken vocabulary used in these listening tasks you can go to the ESL eating out vocabulary page. This page has a recording of the vocabulary items being spoken by a native speaker.
The four exercises on this page are as follows:
In the first ESL eating out listening exercise you need to listen to the following recording of five groups of five spoken words each, and then decide which option (A-D) has the words in the same order as when spoken. When you have answered all the questions you can click the get score button to how many you got correct.
For the second ESL eating out exercise you need to decide which word (options A-D) in each question matches the spoken definition in the following recording. Again you can use the get score button to see how many you got correct.
The third ESL eating out listening exercise is a listening comprehension task. You need to listen to the following recording of a spoken passage and then answer the questions in this task. You can listen to the recording a few times if you need to. To see the correct answers you can use the get score button.
At the end of this page there is a link to click that will show you the text of the passage so you can check to make sure you understood it fully.
For the fourth ESL eating out listening activity you need to listen to the following recording of a passage and write it down exactly as it is spoken. The recording has the passage being read twice. The first time is at a slow reading speed and the second has pauses after every few words and the punctuation spoken. Listen a few times if you need to.
There is also a link at the end of the page that will show you the full text so you can check what you wrote against the original.
