im pretty sure you can, we did during the trials and other examinations... our teacher did say tho, that he recommended that we don't use dictionaries during the lsitening, that we wrote down the word we were unfamilar with and then that we looked it up after the listening.... but yea, im almost postiive that you can use dictionaries whenever you want toss193.02 said:I hope you don't mind if I borrow this thread to ask a related question of mine that's been bugging me for a year (my teacher didn't know the answer very well).
My question is... Are we allowed to use the dictionaries during the Listening & Responding section??
The HSC timetable says "Dictionaries may be consulted during reading time and during the examination" but I kinda need confirmation that that includes Listening. And I'm quite sure that last time we did Listening (trials?), I asked the teacher if we could use them and he said no! Which is why I'm suspecting he's giving us the wrong advice.
