Listen to an interview with a recruitment expert, who talks about his experience of reading CVs and offers some good advice on writing them.

Do the Preparation task first. Then listen to the audio. Next go to each Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the transcript at any time.

Weak forms are syllable sounds that become unstressed in connected speech and are often then pronounced as a schwa.

Weak forms are very common in English. Listen carefully and fill in the gaps with the missing words typed out in full.
