    Section 1: Listening Comprehension (35 minutes, 50 questions)

    In this section, your ability to respond to and understand spoken English will be tested. A recording of a series of dialogues and short talks will be played for you. You will then have to choose the best answer based on the spoken questions. Neither the questions, nor the dialogues or short talks will appear in your test. Only the answer choices for each of the questions will be in your test.

  • Part A
    • DIRECTIONS:
      In Part A you will hear short conversations between two speakers. At the end of each conversation, a third person will ask a question about what was said. You will hear each conversation just one time. Therefore, you must listen carefully to understand what each speaker says. After you hear a conversation and the question about it, read the four possible answers in your test book and decide which one is the best answer to the question you heard. Then on your answer sheet, find the number of the question and fill in the space that corresponds to the answer you have chosen.

People are ready to take any risk to be able to enter the United States. Of course, most of the immigrants meet with a lot of frustration and disillusionment before they are successful.
