    How would you say it?

    Dear Professoionals,

    I'm looking for words and/or expressions to describe the following:

    <a short passage taken from a movie> is it called a video? or is there a specific word for this?
    <an audio passage taken from a movie, it is just the sound> how would you refer to that?

    It would be really nice if you could give suggestions concerning these words, because I'm putting a listening activity together and I have to be as accurate and simple as possible when giving instructions.

    Thanks a lot!

    I think Audio clip and movie clip would be better to name them. . .
