Here are two other documents that you can listen to to train for your oral comprehension exam. The first one is an extract of one of MLK's speech and the second one is a speech by Nelson Mandela. Listen to both speeches 3 times, as you are used to do so in class, then do your summary and finally listen to it one more time while reading the script.

 

First MLK:  click on the image and then the extract starts at 1:20 and finishes at 3:46.

And here you can read the script of his speech. 

 

 

Then NM: Click on the image; the extract starts at 2:18 and goes until the end.

et voici le script: 

 

 

"I am privileged to be here today at the invitation of The Campaign to Make Poverty History.

As you know, I recently formally announced my retirement from public life and should really not be here.

However, as long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest. 

Moreover, the Global Campaign for Action Against Poverty represents such a noble cause that we could not decline the invitation.

Massive poverty and obscene inequality are such terrible scourges of our times - times in which the world boasts breathtaking advances in science, technology, industry and wealth accumulation - that they have to rank alongside slavery and apartheid as social evils.

 

 

 

Hope this helps....
