Type 2: Prompts Are Given In The Form Of Sentences Which You Must Complete Using Up To Three Words. Sometimes The Missing Words Come In The Middle Of The Sentence, But More Often They Come At The End. How To Approach The Task? - Table Completion
  • Look At The Table And Figure Out What The Topic Of The Conversion Might Be.
  • Read The Words At The Top Or Side Of Each Column Or Row And Turn Them Into A Full Question. This Will Help To Follow The Conversations. Also, Try To Predict The Direction In Which The Information Will Be Given (Horizontally Or Vertically).
  • For Each Question Decide What Type Of Information Is Needed To Listen For, E.G. A Type Of Food, A Subject, A Noun, A Verb, A Time, A Number (Money), Etc.
  • How Many Speakers Do You Expect To Hear?
How To Approach The Task? - Flow Chart Completion
  • The Flow Chart Can Be Seen As A Variation Of The Note Completion Task, But The Difference Is That This Represents A Sequence Of Events. Since The Events Are Signaled By Arrows, It May Be Easy To Follow The Conversation And Not Get Lost.
  • Follow The Guidelines For Note Completion On This Task.
How To Approach The Task? - Summary Completion
  • For Each Line Or Segment Of Summary Decide What Sort Of Information You Should Listen To.
  • Try Making Questions To Ask About The Information You Need.
  • Make Some Notes About The Type Of Information. Be Careful About The Stem Of The Sentence. You May Probably Have To Change The Wording Of The Listening To Fit It In The Sentence In The Booklet, E.G. In The Listening The Sentence Is Said In Active Voice But The Pattern In The Booklet Is In Passive Form, So You Should Make The Proper Changes And Write Your Answer In The Passive Voice.
