Summary: While I checked your homework, you were able to practice wh-questions with levels of frequency: all the time, always, every day, frequently, usually, sometimes, once in awhile, rarely, and never. After that, we went over all of the TOEIC tricks and traps that can occur during Part 2 of the listening for wh-questions.

TOEIC  TEST  Tips Part 2 (by Grant Trew):

  • Listen for the keywords and focus on meaning.
  • Don’t expect the form of the answer to be the same as the question.
  • Listen to common distracters (Words that trick!).
  • Listen to who says what.
  • Be careful if the same words are used in the recording and the answer choices because they might have different meanings.
