How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Aural Skills

Suggestions for use: This activity helps the listener to prepare for the type of questions that appear in the Aural Skills question on the Leaving Cert Listening paper. Close listening is required and the listener may have to rewind at times in order to hear details of the arrangement, such as the order of the instruments' appearances and the handling of the melody and descant.
