TOEIC Tips for Part 3 (By Grant Trew)

  • Use your time to predict the context of the conversation before it happens. It can make the listening easier.
  • Think of other ways to say the answer choices.
  • Be careful if you hear the same words in the conversation and the answer choices, because the words might have different meanings.
  • Listen to who says what.
  • Answer quickly!
