TOEIC Listening exercise 2 – Tips
Comment: Watch out — you will not have any resources (picture, text) at your disposal to help you understand the questions and the suggested answers. It is your ability to stay focused on the audio track which will allow you to do well in this exercise, especially because it is quite long (30 questions in a row).
Tip: If you have doubts about a question, do not let your concentration slip! When you hesitate, choose an answer at random and stay focused so that you do not miss the beginning of the next question. Write down the questions you have doubts about and go back to them at the end of the exercise, if you have time.
