Read phonetic script 1

The following exercise is for you to practise reading phonetic script. The words of the text you have to reconstruct have been transcribed in phonetic script. The transcription refers to the text being spoken at a normal speed by a native speaker, so words may be linked together and there may be elisions. Reconstruct the text by guessing what words are hidden behind their phonetic transcription. You can click on each line to hear it.
