Tips of doing listening test.
The exercises of English listening.
1. Do not be fooled match between what you hear the sound (audio) with which you read (booklet). Sometimes the right answer instead of saying different (but means the same).
2. Do not listen to before reading. Read the first and CRUSH anticipatory response. Next listen to confirm the answer. (Do not listen to the HEAD ZERO!)
3. Form (sound) that differ among the four answer choices, usually can be taken as a TEMPORARY ANSWER.
4. The words in the booklet are usually used to mislead, as if the words were tested, so you are stuck in the sound to match. Example, the word DOOR / Drawer, said WRITE / RIGHT, said Did not / Would not / should not
5. Beware the words 'NEGATIVE' as absent (not present) in the booklet, the word did not COME (not present) from an audio device, as well as with the sentence ACTIVE - PASSIVE.
6. In part B (Dialog TWO PEOPLE) are overlaid Narrator, focus on BOTH PEOPLE. The first person just giving feedback, the third person (narrator) just ask the purpose of conversation.
7. In section C (Conversation, TWO or MORE), create and anticipate questions with 5W 1H (WHAT, WHEN, WHY, WHO, WHERE, and HOW).
8. Exploration of key words from each alternative answer. For example, when writing AT A RESTAURANT, maybe you'll hear the word MENU, ORDER, FOOD, BEVERAGE, SPOON, WAITER, and so on.
