5. Useful tips

5.1. Before listening, they give you the instructions and they are printed on your exam sheet. Start reading and listening to the instructions with all your attention. First, you understand the subject of a conversation which helps to make you think in the right direction. And second, you get immediately involved in the process of listening. Make good use of your time, read quickly but carefully and many times, underline key words. It is a conversation, so is important that both the interviewer’s questions and intervieweers answers are given close attention. You might hear all the key words mentioned in the questions and answers. You must understand up to what degree each idea in the answer refers to the question. I mean, try to get which one is the main and which is a secondary.
