IELTS Listening tips
Here are some tips to help you develop effective listening skills
- In Listening, use the example at the beginning of the first section to familiarize yourself with the sound, the situation, and the speakers.
- Keep listening until the recording stops, looking only at the questions that relate to the part being played.
- There are often pauses in the recording between different sections. Use these to prepare for the next set of questions.
Answer Listening questions in the order they appear on the Question Paper. Remember that they normally follow the order of the information in the recording.
- At the end of the recording you have some time to transfer your answers to the Answer Sheet. Check your grammar and spelling as you do so.
