IELTS Listening

The IELTS Listening part tests your ability to understand spoken English and how easily you comprehend main ideas and factual information from the recordings you listen. All recordings are in English language. Also, it checks your ability to assess the speaker’s opinions and attitude while they speak in English. Once you listen to the recordings in English, you will have to answer a certain set of questions.

The IELTS listening test lasts for a total of 40 minutes. You will hear the recordings for 30 minutes and then you will get 10 minutes to write your answers in the response sheet. Each question is of 1 mark. Do make sure to carefully write down your answers in the answer sheet, without any spelling mistakes. Take out 1-2 minutes of your time to check your answers. If you spell the words incorrectly, then your marks will be deducted.

There will be a word limit for each question in the IELTS Listening test. You need to pay close attention to the word limit and how it is different for different set of questions. You will have time to read the questions before the recording starts.
