The operational cycle goes like this, each of the float is dropped in the ocean by a boat at set-point and activated from satellite, then float immediately sinks about 2000m, thats two whole kilometre down in the water and it stays at steps about 10 days and carried around by current which operated in ocean at this level. During the this time it was possible to quit large distances average is 50 km.As it rise to the surface, it collects all thought of date, most importantly valuation in salinity. thats salt levels and under the changes in temperature, a bit like under water weather balloons, then when it gets back to the surface. All date that is collected, its beamed up by satellite .

Hi Simon, I want to ask you about gap filling question. If the speaker said :"It's very important to.....(bla bla)" and I have to fill the gap with "very important"( no more than 2 words), could I answer "important" only?

The operational cycle goes like this: each of the float is dropped in the ocean from a boat at a set-point and activated from a satellite. Then the float immediately sinks about 2000 meters that's 2 whole kilometers down in the water. It stays at this step for about 10 days and it's carried around by the current which operated in the ocean at this level. During this time, it's possible for it to cover quite large distance which its average is 50km. As it rises to the surface, it collects all source of data most importantly variation in salinity, that's salt level and the changes in temperature, a bit like underwater weather balloons. Then when it gets back to the surface, all the data that is collected is beamed up to the satellite.

I believe that teacher Simon recorded his voice ^^

Transcript, which is written down, could be found here:

The operational cycle goes like this:
Each of the floats is dropped in the ocean from a boat at a set point and activated from a satellite. Then the float immediately sinks about 2000 metres that's two whole kilometres down in the water. It stays at this step for about 10 days and this carried out by the currents which operate in the ocean at this level. During this time, it's possible for it to cover quite large ( I have heard launch! not large) but the average is 50 kilometres . As it rises to the surface, it collects all source of data, ,most importantly variations in SALINITY that's salt levels and the changes in temperature a bit like under water BALLOONS. Then, when it gets back to the surface, all the data that is collected is beamed up to the satellite.

NB: Words written in bold were where I made spelling mistakes.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

23. (is) activated
24. 50 kilometers / kilometres / km
25. temperature

Duyen,

"important" would be fine, but I would probably put "very important" anyway.

Hi simon,
I ask you for a question about the gap filling. The speaker said '31st March 2007'. The question asked 'the date' and required not more than one word. How can I fill this gap?

Activated

Alex,

I've seen that kind of question. It will say "no more than one word and/or a number", and you should therefore write "31st March" as your answer (one word and a number). You can miss the year.

Hi Simon
I have heard about the recent exam listening part which have been changed a lot. Some candidates which have taken the exam recently told the listening section have been changed compared with Cambridge books specifically in section 1.
Is it true?what should I do for getting higher mark?
thank you.
