I think I felt the same on a first day at University. I didn't know where to go or what to make special attention on. But it didn't last too long. Soon, I got into the routine and everything became more organized.

He felt a little bit nervous. It's his first top division club. But he is welcomed by everyone and he starts meeting his teammates.

I thought this listening section was easy. I got perfect score although I didn't listen clearly. I enjoyed it, just like the player's who join at a new club for the first time. Just like him, I'm feeling excited on my first day in a new job/university.

First days at school are very difficult especially when you don't know anyone and you are a shy type

a little bit shy.

The listening is quite easy.
The player felt excited for his first day in a division club.
I always feel curious and enthousiast when making my first day somewhere.

On my first day having internship I was taking around to familiarise myself with the working environment and I had an induction training as well.
The staff were friendly and ready to help. Today is my 5th day and it's been a great experience already

Tips

Become a better listener

Remember! You don't need to hear every word, to understand everything in the listening.

If there is a word that you can't hear, think about the rest of the sentence and guess what the word is.

You will be surprised how much you can understand, even when you don't hear everything.
