TOEFL Tip #22: Tricky Main Ideas

by Strictly English TOEFL Tutors on March 3, 2009

Often the listening section tricks you into thinking that the first thing mentioned in the lecture is what the lecture is about. Very often: THIS IS NOT THE CASE.  Many times, the lecture begins with a summary of the last class’s topic or of the reading homework that the students did the night before. Then the lecture transitions to “today’s topic” which is often in opposition to the previous class or the homework.  You must learn to identify when this transition occurs or else you’ll mistakenly think that the beginning of the lecture announces the topic of the lecture.
