Skill 3: Hindari Bunyi Kata yang Mirip
Seringkali jawaban yang salah dalam Listening Part A merupakan kata-kata yang bunyi pengucapannya mirip tapi tentu saja maknanya berbeda. Anda harus betul-betul menghindari jawaban seperti ini.


On the recording, you hear:
Man                             Why couldn’t Mark come with us?
(Woman)                     He was searching for a new apartment.
(narrator)                     What does the woman say about Mark?

In your test book, you read:
(A)             He was in the department office.
(B)              He was looking for a place to live
(C)              He was working on his research paper.
(D)             He had an appointment at church.

Kata kunci pada baris ke dua adalah searching dan apartment. Pada jawaban (C) dan (D), kata research dan church berbunyi mirip dengan kata search, jadi ke dua jawaban ini salah. Pada jawaban (A) dan (D), kata department dan appointment berbunyi mirip dengan kata apartment, jadi jawaban ini salah. Olehnya, jawaban paling tepat yaitu (B).

Strategi menghadapi Listening Part A (skill 3):
1.      Identifikasi kata-kata kunci pada baris ke dua percakapan.
2.      Identifikasi kata-kata kunci di jawaban yang cara pengucapannya mirip dan jangan pilih jawaban-jawaban tersebut.
