8. varies

Don't worry if you had to listen several times to get the answers. This is an exercise that I made myself, not a real IELTS question. I think it's good practice though!

It was difficult and I am not sure if the answers are correct. I have read the recorder 7 times.

Student A
University lectures involve everyone on a course meeting up and receiving information from one of the lectures about a particular topic. Seminars, on the other hand, are small group meetings in which students discuss in detail the range of ideas that they heard about in a lecture.

Student B
A university timetable will consist of a mixture of lectures and seminars. The number of people in lectures can vary depending on the course. For my course we have about 400 people in a big lecture theatre. The number of people attending a small-group seminar varies between 10 and 20.

Dear Mr. Simon,

Where can I find the transcript because somewhere I haven't listened exactly although I listened the tape several times and checked answers.

Thank you very much!
