Hello hamayoon,

I think that's a good way to use the material. First do the tasks on the page, then check your answers. After that, listen again with the transcript, using it to see why any of your answers were incorrect. You can also use the transcript to read aloud along with the speaker, which can help you to develop more fluent speech.
