TOEFL Practice – Elite TOEL Prep – Making Inferences & Predictions – Intro
An INFERENCE is a conclusion that you make when something is not directly stated. An inference is a “hidden” idea. To make an inference, you must interpret a message that is not sated directly. When a speaker implies or suggests something, you must “infer” the meaning. You infer the meaning from the information that the speaker gives. You infer the message behind the speaker’s word.
A PREDICTION is a type of inference in which you determine what will probably happen in the future. You make a prediction when you know what a speaker will probably do in the future, based on what he or she says.
To make inference and predictions, use key ideas and your overall understanding of the topic and context, as well as logic and common sense.
In questions about the inferences and predictions, an answer choice may be incorrect because it:
*Is not supported by what the speakers state or imply;
*Cannot reasonably be concluded from what the speakers say;
*Repeats some of the speakers’ words but has a different message;
*Is incorrect or inaccurate, according to the speakers; or
*Is about something that the speakers do not mention.
