- acquired (heard after the 7th listening only)
- fashion
- substantiating (heard after the 4th listening only)

Fisher and Feryal,

Here is my answer for your question.

"skill of telling the audience what you have learned, skill of writing in a proper academic fashion, Skill of putting forward of argument, defending it and discussing it, substantiating it and concluding it"

Hi! Simon, thanks very much for being so humanitarian in outlook and approach. I would like to ask you a question regarding your correct answers to the listening quiz. In the question heading it was written ONE word only ,however, in your correct answer you have written "single topic". Please clarify.

Bingo! The point of each gap I missed! Indeed it was a tricky one.

There are two gaps for the last answer.
