IELTS Listening Tips

  • First of all, read the instruction carefully. For example, write no more than one word, if the correct answer is ‘car’ and your answer is ‘luxury car’ that is incorrect.
  • In every section, you have some time to read the questions and you can underline the keyword that can help you to finding the right answer.
  • Don’t worry if you not understand each word you hear. Listen the keyword from the questions that can help you to find the possible answer.
  • If you miss any question, guess it. Fill something in the box instead of empty box, sometime guess may be right.
  • Always check your grammar and spelling. Any spelling or grammar mistake will be marked as wrong answer.
  • Attempt all the questions because there is no negative marking.
  • Write all the words in capital letter which help the examiner easier to read.
  • At the end, you will be given 10 minutes to transfer your answer from the booklet to the answer sheet.
