Subscribe to: In the following sections, you'll learn about all 6 IELTS listening task types and try a sample question for each one. Before we talk about each task type in detail, let's look at a trend for IELTS listening question types.

The pie charts below illustrate the proportion of each listening task type that appeared in official IELTS listening tests in Although each listening question type looks different, the basic approach to each one is the same.

Later on in this post, we'll show you the basic strategy to tackle all 6 question types.


Now let's look at each task type in detail. This task type requires you to complete a sentence with a short answer.

The sentence will almost always be a paraphrase of something you'll hear in the passage. In other words, don't expect to hear a speaker say the exact sentence as it's written in the question. You must read the instructions very carefully. The answer can be one word, but will never be more than two. In a matching task, you are required to match a numbered list of items from the listening text to a set of options on the question paper. This task requires you to listen for detailed information and recognise relationships and connections between facts in the listening text.

For example, you need to identify the different types of hotels or guest house accommodations. It is important to analyze these questions before listening to the passage so that you understand the category of the lettered answer choices.

In this task type, you are required to complete labels on a plan eg of a building , map eg of part of a town or diagram e. The answers are usually selected from a list on the question paper. This task type appears in all sections, but mostly in section 2. In section 2, you will listen to one speaker talking about common daily situation. For example, You might have to listen to the speaker giving a tour or describing a proposed site to investors.

In this task type, you will be given a form, a set of notes, a table, a summary, or a flow-chart and you will need to fill in the missing information based on the listening passage.

You may have to select their answers from a list on the question paper or identify the missing words from the recording, making sure to keep to the word limit stated in the instructions. In a multiple choice task, there is a question followed by three possible answers, or the beginning of a sentence followed by three possible ways to complete the sentence. Don't write the answer choice word s!

Sometimes you are given a longer list of possible answers and told to choose more than one. In this case, you should read the question carefully and check how many answers are required.

Short answer questions require you to read a question and then write a short answer using information from the listening text. You will probably be given a limit, for example, 'No more than two words'. If you write more words than the instructions tell you to, your answer will be marked as incorrect. Very often, you will have to find detailed information related to some category.

For example, you might get a question like this: What TWO factors can make social contact in a foreign country difficult? Although each IELTS listening question task type is different, the basic approach to each one is the same. You can tackle all task types by using one simple, step-by-step strategy. Here are the three steps that we recommend you use to approach Listening question types:. This is your opportunity to take a look at the questions you'll need to answer, which is exactly what the first step in this strategy is all about.

Rather than use this time to take a break, or to check your answers, you will focus on learning as much as you possibly can about the questions ahead. Taking this step is important to avoid the mistake of multitasking while listening to the speaker and trying to read the questions for the first time. When your preparation time begins, first make the best possible use of this time by examining the questions to find out more about them.

These are some of the pieces of information you should be looking for when examining each of the IELTS Listening questions:. First, you can underline some of the keywords in the question. In this example, listening for the key phrase " two reasons " that you had already underlined allows you to begin paying close attention at the right moment. Here is the part of the audio script that reveals the answer:.

After having examined the questions, you would know that " the law " and " computer " were the correct response here based on some keywords and knowing the question type. In fact, you should attempt to complete both of these steps within the same 20 second preparation time before the recording starts.

While this may seem like a difficult task to do in such a short amount of time, remember that these steps are actually linked to one another.

To predict potential answers to the Listening questions, you will first need to have completed step one by examining the questions closely. At this point, you should know what kind of question you are looking at, what potential answers will look like, as well as which keywords will be of assistance in locating the answers quickly.

To predict answers, you will combine all of this information and make a guess about what kind of answer you expect to hear. Let's revisit the same Note Completion example question from above. Two reasons for the new approach to pricing are changes in 27 and 28 programs. Just by looking at the grammar of this sentence allows you to identify what part of speech the answer will be.

In this case, the preposition "in" precedes both of the potential answers. Grammatically, only nouns or noun phrases can be used this way in prepositional phrases. Not only can you predict, correctly, that the answer will be a noun or noun phrase, but it would also be possible to predict that the answer could be something related to policy or government law , and a word that can appear with programs computer based on context.

Although it's impossible to guess the exact correct answer based on predictions alone, by making an attempt to imagine what the answer might be, you are more likely to listen for relevant information while ignoring irrelevant information. Predicting potential answers before the recording begins will prepare your ear, getting you one step closer to the correct answer. Now, try putting Step 1 examine questions and Step 2 predict potential answers together in a more difficult multiple choice example question.

Although there isn't a way to know the answers to these questions for sure, you can still use the information found in these questions to predict potential answers and target your listening. For example, question 24 concerns the reason why theatre ticket prices will be the lowest, so you will want to listen closely for any of those reasons mentioned.

Bear in mind, it's possible that more than one will be mentioned. Take a look at the script below to see how prediction can help you eliminate wrong answers. Notice how three of the potential answers are mentioned, "booked for groups", "are for weekend shows" and "are non-refundable. Once the recording starts and the actual listening part of the test begins, you should follow along to complete step three of this IELTS Listening section strategy.

Following along requires you to focus closely on what you are hearing, while at the same time keeping track of which question the content may be addressing. The questions on the IELTS Listening exam section will usually appear in order of where their answers can be found in the content of the recording.

This gives you an advantage in the test, because it means that once you have heard the answer to one question, you will immediately turn your attention to the next one in order. If you are able to follow along successfully by matching the context from the questions to what you are hearing in the recording, you will stay on track and avoid missing key information necessary to answer each of the questions.

Doing this is easier said than done, however. You will need to multitask by listening while simultaneously keeping your eye on the next question. If you do, in fact, miss the answer to a question, you will know when you hear the answer to a later one. Even though this can be confusing and even frustrating, missing one answer and being aware of it is still preferable to getting completely lost in the content and missing even more of the answers.

In the scenario of missing a question, you should simply leave it, and continue onto the next one. At the end, you will have to make your best guess about the question you missed. However, on the bright side, it's possible that listening to the recording in its entirety may provide you with other contextual clues and allow you to answer any questions you missed more accurately.

Because of this, it's important you train consistently every day until test day. Try it free. Section 1 — a conversation between two people set in an everyday social context. For example, you might hear a conversation about confirming details for a reservation, or placing an order over the phone.

Section 2 - a monologue set in an everyday social context. For example, you might hear a speech about local facilities, or someone providing directions, or presenting basic information about an event. Section 3 — a conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context. For example, you might hear a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment, or a couple of students discussing something from class.

Section 4 - a monologue on an academic subject. For example, you will hear a university lecture from a professor.

This is the toughest recording on the Listening exam for most students. Raw scores Band scores 9 8.

Listen to the audio and answer questions Helendale 3. Section 2 This is the second section of your Listening test. Section 3 This is the third section of your Listening test. The Secret Garden Section 4 This is the fourth section of your Listening test. We are all present hedonists A. American boys drop out of school at a higher rate than girls because A. Understanding how people think about time can help us A become more virtuous B work together better C identify careless or ambitious people.

Task Type 1 — Sentence Completion This task type requires you to complete a sentence with a short answer. Sentence Completion Question. Audio script Two friends, Rachel and Paul: Rachel has already done a course at the university, but Paul: The extract relating to these questions comes from the last part of the recording. The other thing I wanted to ask you was, did you find it hard, studying with the Open University?

You mean, because you're studying on your own, most of the time?

Well it took me a while to get used to it. I found I needed to maintain a high level of motivation, because it's so different from school. Oh dear. You'll learn it, Paul. Another thing was that I got very good at time- management because I had to fit time for studying round a full-time job.


Well I'm hoping to change to working part-time, so that'll help. What makes it easier is that the degree is made up of modules, so you can take time off between them if you need to. It isn't like a traditional three-or four-year course, where you've got to do the whole thing of it in one go. That's good, because I'd like to spend six months travelling next year. Huh, it's all right for some.

Then even though you're mostly studying at home, remember you've got tutors to help you, and from time to time there are summer schools. They usually last a week. They're great, because you meet all the other people struggling with the same things as you. I've made some really good friends that way. Sounds good. So how do I apply?

Task Type 2 — Matching In a matching task, you are required to match a numbered list of items from the listening text to a set of options on the question paper. Matching Question. Audio Script A customer has been arranging with a shipping agent to send a large box overseas. This is the last part of the conversation. You will hear a Communication Studies student talking to his tutor about optional courses for the next semester.

Dr Ray: Come in. Oh hello Jack. Have a seat. That's right. We have to decide by the end of next week. Really, I'd like to do all five options but we have to choose two, don't we. Yes, but the choice depends on your major to some extent.

You're majoring in Communication Studies, aren't you?

So for example the Media Studies Option will cover quite a lot of the same area you did in the core module on mass communications this semester - the development of the media through the last two series, in relation to political and social issues. Well that was interesting, but I've decided I'd rather do something completely new. There's a Women's Studies option, isn't there?

IELTS practice test

Yes, 'Women and Power' — again it has a historical focus, it aims to contextualise women's studies by looking at the legal and social situation in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries … Jack: So it would be useful if I intended to specialise in women's studies Well, it might still be useful to give you an idea of the issues involved.

It's taught by Dr Steed. Oh, really? I'll sign up for that, then. What about the option on Culture and Society? That addresses the historical debate on the place of culture since the Industrial Revolution in Britain. So a historical focus again Do I get the message you're not so keen on history? Well, it's just we seem to have done quite a lot this semester … Listening sample task — Matching example 1 anyway I'll think about that one. If you're interested in a course focusing on current issues there's the option on Identity and Popular Culture — that approaches the subject through things like contemporary film, adverts, soap operas and so on.

That sounds interesting. Can you tell me who runs it? Well, it's normally Dr Stevens but he's on sabbatical next semester, so I'm not sure who'll be running it. It should be decided by next week though.
