Hello Pentone
Don't worry - for this exercise we expect you to listen to the audio again and again. It would be very difficult to finish the exercise without doing this.
As you listen to the dialogue you will gradually become more familiar with the speaking style, and you will be able to recognize more and more words. Learning academic English is a slow process but if you persevere I am sure your listening and writing skills will improve.
We wish you lots of success in your studies.

I couldn't understood how to fill it up

Hello Y GOVINDA RAJU,
You need to drag one of the words in blue at the top into each space, then release.  Please let me know if there are any problems when you try this.
Best wishes,
