TOEFL Listening Short Conversations Lesson Review

Listen

         (A) Find the highway on a road map.
         (B) Check the directions he gave her.
         (C) Watch for the sign to Smitty's Point.
         (D) Put up extra signs on the road.

To look out for something means to watch for or it, or to be alert for it. The man tells the woman to watch for the sign to Smitty's Point. Choice (A) may be confused with the expression look up, which means to find (especially information in a book). Choice (B) may be confused with the expression look over, which means check or look at. Choice (D) is not a paraphrase of the expression.

Listen

         (A) He always has a flashlight readily available.
         (B) He will lend the woman his flashlight.
         (C) It is more convenient to have a small flashlight.
         (D) He always misplaces his flashlight.

To have something on hand means to have it readily available. The man says he always has a flashlight readily available. Choice (B) may be confused with the sounds of the words "lend" and "hand." Choice (C) is not mentioned and may not be concluded from the conversation. Choice (D) contradicts the fact the man always has a flashlight "on hand."

Listen

         (A) The cream has turned sour.
         (B) She has to go to the store to buy some cream.
         (C) The milk is fresher than the cream.
         (D) There isn't any cream.

To be out of something means there isn't any of it. The woman says there isn't any cream. Choice (A) is not a paraphrase of the expression. Choice (B) is not mentioned and may not be concluded from the conversation. Since there isn't any cream, the woman cannot make a comparison between the freshness of the milk and the cream. Choice (C) is therefore not correct.

Listen

         (A) She took longer than usual to fix his bike.
         (B) She is very experienced at repairing bikes.
         (C) She enjoys fixing up old bikes.
         (D) Her hands are rough from repairing so many bikes.

To be an old hand at something means to be very experienced at it. The man says that Andrea is very experienced at repairing bikes. Choice (A) contradicts the fact that the man said Andrea didn't take long at all to fix his bike. Choice (C) is not mentioned and may not be concluded from the conversation. Choice (D) is not a paraphrase of the expression.

Listen

         (A) She forgot to remind the man when the play starts.
         (B) She has seen the play many times before.
         (C) She has repeatedly told the man when the play starts.
         (D) She is sure the play starts at eight o'clock.

When something is done over and over again, it is done repeatedly. The woman says she has repeatedly told the man when the play starts. Choice (A) contradicts the fact that the woman has told the man over and over when the play starts. Choice (B) refers to the woman seeing the play many times before, not to her telling the man many times when the play starts. Choice (D) is not mentioned and may not be concluded from the conversation.
