Test Strategies – Listening

Posted on: June 10, 2010

Here are a few tips about strategy for the IELTS Listening test.


1. Read the instructions thoroughly.

2. Read the questions before the test begins so you know what information you are listening for.

3. Underline key words.  But remember that one word may be used in the question but a different word or group of words that mean the same thing may be used in the recording.

4. If you hear a word on the recording that you don’t know, don’t stop listening to think about that one word.

5. Carefully transfer your answers to the answer sheet and check your answers after you’ve finished.
