IELTS Listening

IELTS Listening

IELTS consists of four parts; the first one is called IELTS Listening. This section of the exam takes only 30 minutes, but sometimes it is the most difficult part of the test for many Students. In order to get a good Band score in this section, you should understand the specifics of the test and follow the technique.

This unit consists of four parts. These mini texts on a particular topic have some particular tasks: to choose the correct answer, to agree or disagree with the statement, to write the correct word, number, or date. It should be taken into consideration that each subsequent passage is more complicated than the previous one. So one should not relax on the first task, which is considered to be the easiest one. IELTS is an academic exam and checks the depth of your language abilities.

You will be given 10 minutes to transfer your answers to the answer sheet.

The key to success in IELTS Listening is not only the ability to listen difficult English texts. More important is to be able to analyze the information and choose the correct answer.

Try to start with a reasonable allocation of time. Remember that you get to listen to the text only once. Before each text, you are given about a minute to check your answers and get familiarize, with the subsequent task. Don’t waste time checking the answers, you still will not be able to hear the text again.

Try to determine what kind of task you have to solve. If you need to fill the gap, try to find a clue. For example, if the sentence is presented with a currency symbol you can guess what you have to do. Such markers can help you in advance.
