Listening Part 2


  • In this part of the EOC exam you will hear one or two speakers talking about a topic.  You need to choose the correct answer from six multiple choice questions.
  • The questions come in the order of the listening.  Read each question carefully as you listen so that you don’t lose your place while the listening.
  • If you are not sure of the answer, eliminate the options you know are incorrect.
  • The options may not repeat the exact words in the text.  Read each option carefully.
  • You may hear some words from all three options in a question.  Only one is correct.  Here are some ideas to help you choose the correct option:
  • listen to the tense
    • past tenses
    • present tenses
    • future tenses
    • perfect tenses
  • listen for time words and expressions, e.g.:
    • before
    • when
    • it wasn’t until
    • after
    • as soon as, etc.
  • You may also hear the speaker giving reasons for doing things:
    • because
    • in order to
    • but
    • since
    • if
    • although
    • unless, etc.
Action Plan
  1. Before you start the listening, read the instructions.  What is the text about?  What do you need to do?
  2. Do not try to listen to every word.  You will lose your place in the listening text.
  3. Relax.  You will hear each text twice so if you’re not sure after the first listening, check your answer after the second listening.
  4. Do not leave a blank answer.  If you are not sure of the answer, make a guess!
