There are several common strategies for the Listening Comprehension, including:
1. Understand the forms of the command (direction) in each section (part) well before D-day exam.
2. Read the options on each question as much as possible when the narrator is reading direction and example problems (example).
3. Listen with full concentration and focus your attention on the conversation you are listening.
4. Maximize your listening skills on the first questions in each part.
Part A: Short Conversations, a strategy that should be done is:
1. Focus your hearing on the second.
2. Do not panic if you can not understand word for word in a complete conversation. You only need to capture an idea or content of the conversation.
3. If you absolutely can not understand what the speaker was talking about both, choose the best answer is different from what you hear.
4. Understand the functional forms of expression (agreement (consent), uncertainty (uncertainty), suggestion (suggestion), surprise (shock)), idiomatic, expression, and situations when the conversation is done.
Part B: Longer Conversation, a strategy that should be done is:
1. When the narrator reads part B direction you should read the answer choices at a glance and then record it and expecting the theme of what will be a conversation.
2. When listening to the conversation, you have to know what theme / topic.
3. Beware of each question.
4. Pay attention to the conditions and situations that occurred during the conversation, namely regarding the place and time of the conversation, what and who is concerned.
Part C: Talks, a strategy that should be done is:
