Hi Simon,

I noticed the way he spelled the website at the end of the video is quite confusing: "whoi" sounds like "whoy" /ou wai/.

How would you distinguish if there were something similar in the listening test?

Many thanks!

The following is production of woods hole Oceanographic institution. When studying marine mammals in the wild, the scientists use the data logging tags that temporarily attached to the animals using suction. The tags allow scientists directly measure animal’s movements and behavior. While, the scientist learn a lot from these instruments they want to understand whether the animal's behaviour or energy consumption might be affected by the attached tag.

Researches from the woods hole Oceanographic institute and Texas A & M university corpus Christi are working with trainers at dolphin quest in Oahu to study the effects of drag created by the data logging devices. To do this, the dolphins are trained to follow a remote control boat while wearing the non-invasive data logger. A sensor on the boats tracks the dolphins speed and duration of the session. The session ends with the dolphin greeting its trainer and giving the voluntary breath samples into a custom made device that measures respiratory flow rates oxygen and carbon dioxide levels of the expired gas.

Researchers are able to quantify the difference in energy exertion with and without the dolphin wearing the data logger. These studies will help better interpret data in the field studies with wild dolphins and result in the development of even better data loggers in the future.

Christina,

Yes, well noticed - when spoken very quickly, this difference is even unclear to native speakers.

If this were an IELTS recording, I think they would make sure that the speaker pronounced each letter very clearly.

Thank you Simon :)
