Ielts listening

  1. 1.<br />I<br />E<br />L<br />T<br />S<br />The Listening Module<br />
  2. 2. The Exam Environment<br />The exam room looks like this: <br />** Don’t worry, the examiners are very friendly, and they speak as if you are coming straight out of Mars.<br />
  3. 3. The Exam Paper<br />The exam paper looks like this: (Scary, isn’t it?)<br />Well, it’s just a stapler, not an alligator!<br />Similarly, the exam just seems scary. It’s not really scary <br />
  4. 4. 30 minutes to do it all….<br />You will have 30 minutes to listen to conversations, and answer questions about them.<br />There are four sections of the test. Each with a different conversation style!<br />
  5. 5. And 10 minutes to transfer your answers!<br />You don’t get any marks if you fail to transfer your answers to the answer sheet. But this is a provision only available in the Listening Module. Be ready to submit your answers in the other three modules straight away, no extra time is given there!<br />
  6. 6. A small tape recorder…<br />Yes, no individual head phones, don’t get your hopes up! A small audio player is placed in the front of the class and everyone listens from it.<br />
  7. 7. It’s a one way road<br />There is no repetition to the conversation being played. If you miss the answer to a question, you miss it. Go ahead and listen for the next question’s answer!<br />
  8. 8. 30 seconds<br />You get 30 seconds to look at questions and 30 seconds to review your answers. This happens for each section. <br />
  9. 9. This is how a section looks like<br />But don’t be too hopeful, the first one is an example, you’ll have to do all the questions yourself!<br />
  10. 10. The Answer…<br />The confusion…<br />This is how it goes…<br />
  11. 11. Do’s and Don’ts <br />If the answer is supposed to be ‘2’, just write 2.<br />You can write Emily or EMILY, both are correct.<br />You can write alternative answers separated by a ‘/’ (slash). For example, together/ jointly. <br />If it says ‘No more than three words’, don’t use more than three words! While ‘Brown leather jacket’ is correct, ‘Jacket of brown leather’ is not!<br />Just write the necessary word. For example, to complete ‘in the ….’, you just write ‘evening’, and not ‘in the evening’. <br />
  12. 12. More Do’s and Don’ts<br />Both US and UK spellings are correct. You can use either.<br />Correct spelling is required! You lose marks if you can’t spell your answer right. Names etc are usually spelled in the conversation.<br />All formats for writing dates etc are acceptable.<br />All standard abbreviations are acceptable. For example, ASAP.<br />
  13. 13. Need some help?<br /><br />
