Study For Short Conversations in the TOEIC Test?
The TOEIC Test is a comprehensive test that consists
of the four aspects of language learning which are
reading, listening, speaking and writing. Getting a
good score in each of the sections is mandatory as
each of the sections has its own importance.
About Question # IV Ė
The Listening section is made up of 100 questions
that must be completed in 45 minutes. The third
section in the Listening section is the test on
Short Conversations. You are given a few situations
in which you hear two people involved in a short
conversation. The given questions are based on the
conversation you hear. You need to answer the
questions by choosing the right option from the
given four which are numbered a-b-c and d. The
question usually tests your listening and
comprehension skills and your level of vocabulary.
You need to be focused on the dialogue and the
context in which the speakers are conversing.

skills if you used an audio dictionary.
The questions asked usually have short phrases or
single words as answers so it is not such a
difficult task to find out the right option.
What makes this test so challenging is that you
donít get to hear the conversation the second nor do
you get to read the transcript in your answer sheet.
So you need to be quite focused and oblivion to your
environment to understand the conversation.
Since the conversations in the TOEIC Test are a
simulation of real life situations, locations and
people involved in the business settings you can
easily relate the same to the conversation and be
able to answer the question. So you can start early
imagining real life situations in organizations and
create an imaginary conversation between two
imaginary people. You can try and record it and have
it reviewed by someone who is fluent in the
language. This will also ensure that you have your
