Previous Skill: The Topic (Skill 11)

The answers in Listening Part C are generally found in order in the talk (as they were in Listening Part B). This means that as you listen to the talk, you should be thinking about the answers to the questions in the order that they are listed in the test book.

Example

On the recording, you hear:


(narrator)    Questions 1 through 3. Listen to a talk about cats.

(woman)     Many people are allergic to cats. If they come in contact with cats, they sneeze their skin turns red, and their eyes begin to burn. However, it is not only people who suffer from allergies. Cats may also be allergic to pollen, dust, and perfumes, many of the same agents that cause allergies in people. Perhaps your cat is sneezing and has watery eyes. If you think that your cat has some allergies, a veterinarian can prescribe medication to help solve the problem

On the recording, you hear:

(narrator) 1. What happens to people who suffer from allergies?
                2. What is mentioned about cats?
                3. What can someone do with a cat that has allergies?

The first question asks what happens to people who suffer from allergies. The speaker says that they sneeze, so the best answer is answer (C). The second question asks what is mentioned about cats. The speaker says that cats may also be allergic, so the best answer is answer (B), they can have allergies. The third question asks what to do with a cat that has allergies. The speaker says that a veterinarian can prescribe medication, so the best answer is answer (D), give it medicine.
