How to improve your listening skills
How can I prepare for the Kijk-Luister test? 
Kijken en luisteren are not labeled as "skills"for nothing! It is something you need to be able to do. It is not the case that if you have a  kijk- en luistertoets planned for Thursday, that you can take a look in your book on Wednesday evening. A skill takes time to build up. The more you practice the better you will get.

Building on your "Kijk- en luistervaardigheid" skills

Cito kijk- en luistertoets

The following tips are mainly for the  Cito kijk- en luistertoetsen 
  • Make sure that you are rsted and relaxed before the test starts. You need to concentrate for quite long periods of time.
  • Listen carefully to the introduction and think about what you already know about the topic. 
  • First, READ the question and the answers, before you start to listen to the fragment.

Slide 4 - Slide

Tips for the Cito KL tests
  • Try to remember the answers in 'signal words'(steekwoorden) so that you know what to listen out for.
  • Use the pauses between the fragments to read the questions and answers
  • While you are listening, try to work out the answer. Sometimes you will hear a word that is the same as in one of the answers. THAT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THE CORRECT ANSWER.  

Slide 5 - Slide

ALWAYS  listen to the whole fragment and choose the best answer. 
Speakers often repeat themselves and give the answer in more than one way. 
STILL DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER???? Don't panic- just select an answer and concentrate on the next question.
