Writing down the keywords or phrases quickly help you summarize the text. You have cut,

Scan through all the options as quickly as possible. It will be then easy for you to select

You have a transcript on your screen with several blanks to be filled. You will hear an
audio clip for the same transcript. You need to type in the missing word as you hear the
If you have good typing speed, you may type the word as you listen to the audio clip. In
other case, you may write down the missing word on your notepad and then once the clip is
over and you are done with your writing, type all the words in the blanks.
You will need to move your cursor to the blank space and click on it so that you can type a
word. Many forget this action and find that whatever they typed was never written on the
screen. It is recommended to check the word and its spelling before clicking the ‘next’

need to select the summary paragraph that best matches the lecture.
Your listening and reading skills
You will have a recording being played. After listening to it carefully, you need to choose
any one of the text or sentences given. The selected sentence or text should answer the
question based on the audio you just heard.
You will listen to an audio clip that will have a ‘beep’. You will need to select the most
appropriate option that fits the ‘beep’.
The beep, for almost all the times, comes in the last. And, knowing this fact, many students
become alert only when the audio is reaching the end. The tip is you should carefully listen
to the sentence right from the beginning. This is because many times, the ‘beep’ could be a
conclusion of the entire sentence.
You have a transcript already written on your screen. You will hear an audio clip for the
same transcript. You need to identify and select the words (by left-clicking on them) that
are different from the words in the lecture from the audio clip.
Move mouse cursor as the audio clip is played. Be alert and immediately click the word that
differs from the recording. Even if you wrongly clicked one word, do not go back and
deselect it immediately or else the speaker will finish several more words that you will
completely miss. At the end, remember those that you clicked incorrectly; you then deselect
them all by again left-clicking on them.
You will have to listen carefully to the sentence spoken in an audio clip played
automatically. You need to type the sentence with exact words spoken.
Some prefer taking down the note as the sentence is spoken. Writing initials of the words
spoken may help. Others with good memory power simply concentrate on the sentence and recall
it while writing it.
Spare some time to check and proofread your own content. Grammar, spelling, style, and
