11. Anticipating Questions about the Extended Conversations

When working Part C, preview the answer choices quickly before the talk starts. Try to anticipate what the question will be based on the answer choices. You usually won’t be able to guess exactly what the question will be, but you can guess what type of question will be asked. For example, if the four answer choices are the names of places, a “Where” question will be asked; if the answer choices are times of day or dates, you will hear a “When” question. If you have some idea of what the question will be, you can focus your listening during the talks.
You can also get a good idea of the situation in which the conversation is taking place by previewing the items.
Remember: The introductory comments at the beginning of the conversation tell you which items to preview.
