Listen again and identify where they are and why. Tick the correct answer.

The audience /'ɔːdiəns/: spectators.

a) Where are Jenny and Jonas? In the classroom / At a concert / At a Spelling Bee competition.
b) What are they doing here? They are in the audience / They are contestants / They are judges.

Listen to the recording once again. Pay attention to the Spelling Bee contest rules. Find out the words to complete the sentences.

When we say the word you must spell:

1. you can ask us to R E A the word;

2. you can ask for the D F I O N of the word;

3. you can ask us to S it in a sentence. You must speak L U and C E because we can’t ask you to R the word! If the spelling is C O T, a judge will N G the bell or say “C ” and you must go back to your seat on stage; if you misspell the word, you are E L T D and you must go sit in the audience.
