JLPT listening comprehension

Post by m_ » Thu 06.05.2008 2:05 am

Do they repeat and play again the question and conversation of the listening comprehension during the JLPT 4 test?

I find that sometimes I realise I had not catch what is the question when the conversation ends.

They play the conversation first followed immediately by the questions. When the final question is asked there is only a short time to answer and it is pencils down.
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

They only play each segment once; no repeats.

They only play it once, and as Chikara mentioned, there is very little time to think between two questions.

My bit of advice:
They always start the next 'chapter' with the question that you will have to answer, so it's very important to catch every first segment!
If you don't know an answer, don't dwell on it too long, but make sure you listen to the next question. Because if you miss the beginning part, it's very difficult to catch up, since you don't know what you are listening for..... :wink:
