The short conversations
Before we get started, let's look
at an example of this type of question so that we can understand what we are talking
Example of this type of question
During the TOEFL, you will
Woman: Excuse me, could you
tell me where the cafeteria is?
Man: Oh, I'm not
a student here. There's a map over there, though.
What does the man mean?
O He doesn't know where the cafeteria is.
O He would like to have lunch with the woman.
O The woman doesn't need a map
to find the cafeteria.
O He also wants to know where the cafeteria is.
For this question, we should choose He doesn't know where cafeteria
is. The man implies that he is not familiar with the campus when he says he's
not a student there and further indicates that he really doesn't know by telling
the woman she could look at a map.
For most people, this is the easiest
part of the TOEFL Listening Section since the vocabulary is relatively easy, and
the speakers use the kind of language that we hear every day.
