TOEFL Listening Part A– Practice I

The Listening section of computer based TOEFL has two parts – A and B.  In Part A, on your computer screen, you will see two people talking to them.  Listen to the conversation meticulously as you won’t hear the conversation again.  After the conversation, a question based on the conversation will be heard and also be seen on the computer screen.  This is followed by four options, to choose the best answer.  After choosing the best option, click on the NEXT icon and click CONFIRM icon, to proceed to the next conversation and question.  Usually, the question for the conversation is based on the response of the second speaker.  The first speaker’s conversation states the context.
