WITH ESSENTIAL TIPS
You will hear the recordings only once.
There are several different types of question and each requires a different strategy so you should familarise yourself with all of them. They include:
Labeling a diagram or map
***You will have to practice listening to both one person speaking (a monologue) and more than one person speaking at the same time.
Listening to monologues is challenging because the person doesn’t often stop speaking for very long so students can feel like they are being overwhelmed.
Listening to more than one person can be difficult because there may be different accents or styles of speaking and it is tricky to ‘tune-in’ to what is being said.
For lots of free practice activities for both monologues and more than one person talking.
***Be careful with your spelling. Lots of easy marks are thrown away because of poor spelling.
My advice is to keep a notebook of words you find difficult to spell.
Even native speakers have a hard time with some English words, so the only way is to record and learn.
Both US and UK spelling are allowed in the listening test.
