This is a listening comprehension task based on the famous Bruce Springsteen song The River.
The difficulty of this exercise is about B2 level (upper-intermediate) or maybe slightly higher.
Your task is to listen to the song and fill the gaps in the lyrics. You can also ask for hints and stop the playback at any time.
We have a few more exercises based on this song:
- a reading comprehension exercise on the background of the song
- a slightly more difficult listening comprehension exercise, with more gaps than here
- vocabulary exercises based on the words used in the song
You can expect even more exercises on The River by Bruce Springsteen, so check back soon.
