Be ready to take notes. Don’t try to write every word. Use key words, symbols and arrows to note the main and supporting ideas. Stay focused and keep taking notes until the lecture stops. You will improve your score if you include relevant detail with the main points.
If your notes follow the speaker’s sequencing, you can use this to organize your own response. Remember, after the audio stops you only have ten seconds before the tone sounds to tell you to begin speaking, so well-organized notes are important.
Use the image to anticipate the vocabulary you might hear. Listen and take note of any signposts to help you recognize the main points.
