TOEFL Listening Practice Questions

Look at these simulated TOEFL questions and answer the questions based on what the second person says. We have written the words of the first person in “code” so that you will have to focus all of your attention on what the second person says. The idea here is that you should be able to answer many of the questions, even if you miss what the first person says.

You may not get the right answer every time, but you should be able to answer many of the questions based only what the second person says.
