Tes AcEPT (Part I Listening Comprehension)

Section B

In this part you will hear five short talks. After each talk, two questions will be asked based on the information given. Answer the questions following the talk, by choosing A, B, C, or D which best answers the questions. Remember, you are not allowed to take notes or write in your test book.

Soal no 11 – 20 menguji kemampuan Anda mendengarkan teks pendek yang dibacakan narrator. Setelah teks diperdengarkan, Anda akan mendengarkan pula dua pertanyaan mengenai isi teks. Pilihlah A, B, C, atau D yang secara tepat menjawab pertanyaan yang diajukan. Anda tidak diperkenankan membuat catatan apapun pada buku soal.

Langkah – langkah:

  1. Baca pernyataan pada pilihan A, B, C dan D secara cepat kemudian buatlah pertanyaan sendiri.
  2. Dengarkan percakapan pendek pada tape recorder namun lebih fokus pada pernyataan yang sesuai dengan pertanyaan yang anda buat.

Catatan: Pada bagian ini biasanya pertanyaannya mengacu pada WH QUESTION (what, where, when, who, how long, how many, how often).
