I personally find the multiple choice for the listening omprehension section of the exam to be very difficult. Anyone have any tips for doing well on these questions?

    The listening comprehension is pretty easy for me. My strategy is to imagine that I am in the same situation as the people speaking on the CD (for example, if they are a couple of students talking to each other in the hallway, I imagine myself as one of the students and think about how they might react to what the other party says).

    ^ If that makes any sense, of course... =/ It works for me, though.

    Well, it just seems like you need to do some practice. I am not a native speaker, however, I've met tons of friends and have studied Spanish vehemently for the past 3 years. I consider myself to be fluent now. Although I've never taken the AP test (but I will), I have taken standardized test for the state (Louisiana) and I've come in first place. What you really want to do is either make some Spanish friends maybe chat by microphone or just listen to spanish music, TV, whatever. I'll tell you this, once you can understand Spanish music, the rest is a breeze... So, that's what I recommend you do.

    Good Luck,
