SECTION 1: LISTENING COMPREHENSION
PART C: MINI TALKS

LESSON # 19

IMPORTANT: The examples in this part of SECTION I are shorter than the actual mini talks on the TOEFL examination. The actual mini talks usually have four questions following them.

Announcements and Advertisements

Announcements are short talks that provide factual information. Advertisements are short talks that provide persuasive Information.

In some talks on Part C, you will hear factual or persuasive information.

When you hear a talk, you must be able to summarize the important ideas. You must also be able to answer questions that begin with the following words: who, what, when, why?

EXAMPLE:

Announcer:
