In this section of the test, you will have the chance to show how well you understand spoken English. There are four parts to this section with special direction for each part.
Part I: Questions 1 to 4
Directions: In this part of the test, you will hear some dialogues and questions spoken in English. The dialogues and the questions will be spoken twice. They will not be printed in your test book, so you must listen carefully to understand what the speakers are saying.
After you listen to the dialogue and the question about it, read the five possible answers, and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Now listen to a sample question.
You will hear:
Man : I give up! I’ll stop learning French
Woman : Why do you say that? You are making a lot of progress.
Man : No, I’m not. I’ve tried hard but still, I cannot speak it well
Woman : How come? You can speak Arabic, Hindi, Japanese, and even Rusian well, can’t you?
Narrator : What language is difficult for the man to learn?
The best answer to this question is “French”. Therefore you should choose answer (C).
