    • Meeting 2 - Focus on second line and synonyms

      SKILL I: FOCUS ON THE SECOND LINE

      In Listening Part A you will hear a short conversation involving two people; this conversa­tion is followed by a question. It is important to understand that the answer to this type of question is most often (but not always!) found in the second line of the conversation.

      Example

      On the recording, you hear:

      (man)    Billy really made a big mistake this time.

        (woman)     Yes, he forgot to turn in his research paper.

      (narrator)     What does the woman say about Billy?

      In your test book, you read:

      (A)     It was the first time he made a mistake.

      (B)      He forgot to write his paper.

      (C)     He turned in the paper in the wrong place.

      (D)    He didn't remember to submit his assignment.


      The second line of this conversation indicates that Billy forgot to turn in his paper, and this means that he did not remember to submit it. The best answer is therefore answer (D).


      STRATEGY #1: FOCUS ON THE SECOND LINE

      1. The second line of the conversation probably contains the answer to the question.

      2. Listen to the first line of the conversation. If you understand it, that's good. If you don't understand it, don't worry because it probably does not contain the answer.

      3. Be ready to•focus on the second line of the conversation because it probably contains the answer. Repeat the second line in your mind as you read through the answers in the text.
