Section 1: Listening Comprehension

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 directions for each part.

Directions: For each question, you will see a picture in your test book and you will hear four short statements. The statements will be spoken just one time. They will not be printed in your test book, so you must listen carefully to understand what the speaker says.

When you hear the four statements, look at the picture in your test book and choose the statement that best describes what you see in the picture. Then, on your answer sheet find the number of the question and mark your answer. Look at the sample on the next page.


Now listen to the four statements.

You will hear:
(A) They’re looking out of the window.
(B) They’re having a meeting.
(C) They’re eating in a restaurant.
(D) They’re moving the furniture.

Sample Answer (A) (B) (C) (D)

Statement (B), “They’re having a meeting,” best describes what you see in the picture. Therefore, you should choose answer (B).
