Hello. I'm Margot Politis. Welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation.

0:19

Today we're going to listen to a weather report.

0:22

We're going to listen for numbers, and practise saying and spelling them.

0:27

Listen to the weather in Sydney.

0:30

Good morning. It looks like being another glorious summer day in Sydney.

0:34

Temperatures will range from a minimum of 16°C in Richmond and 17°C in the city,

0:40

with maximum temperatures reaching the high 20s, with 29 in Richmond and 27 in the city

0:46

by early afternoon. This summer promises to be the warmest since 1987. The average minimum

0:52

for this time of year is 15°C and the average maximum is 22°C.

0:58

Humidity will be high again today, ranging from 80-90% across the metropolitan area,

1:04

and possibly for the next 5 or 6 days.

1:07

Sunrise will be at 5.45 am and the sun will set at 7.43 pm. The next full moon will be

1:14

on December 9th.

1:16

For those interested in fishing and surfing, windy conditions will prevail all day with

1:21

winds gusting from the southeast from 10-15 knots, then easing to 10-11 knots by late

1:28

afternoon. Swells along all Sydney beaches will range from 1 - 1.5 metres.

1:34

So counting and numbers are a very important part of language. You need them to talk about

1:40

how much things cost, what you earn, telephone numbers, visa cards, passports, addresses

1:47

and dates.

1:48

Being able to listen for and understand numbers is an important academic skill.

1:55

There are some conventions you need to learn, and you'll need to do a lot of practice listening

1:59

for and saying numbers.

2:01

Let's get started.

2:03

Listen to these pairs of numbers:

2:04

13, 30

2:09

14, 40

2:12

15, 50

2:13

16, 60

2:17

Now you try these ones:

2:21

17, 70

2:24

18, 80

2:28

19, 90

2:30

They sound very similar. You'll need to listen carefully so you don't get these mixed up.

2:36

Temperatures will range from a minimum of 16°C in Richmond and 17°C in the city.

2:42

Humidity will be high again today, ranging from 80-90% across the metropolitan area.

2:49

The temperature in Richmond is 16 degrees Celsius.

2:54

The humidity is 80 - 90%.

2:58

Did you hear these numbers correctly?

3:00

If you don't understand what someone's said, ask them to repeat, and stress the key syllable.

3:07

And that will be 16 dollars.
