***IELTS LISTENING FULL PRACTICE EXAMS
The IELTS Listening Test tests your ability to understand spoken English in different situations. The test last for approximately 30 minutes and has four sections.
In each section, you listen to a recording and answer ten questions. Before each section, you hear information about who is speaking, the situation and the topic. The voice on the recording then tells you which questions to look at and you read the instructions for the task on the question paper.
The recordings in each section are divided into parts and there is a generally a pause between each part so that you can read the questions before you listen. After the pause , you hear a continuation of the same recording . You should use the pause to read the task so that you’re ready to answer the questions.
You hear each section of the recording ONCE only.
You should answer the questions as you listen, and write your answers directly onto the question paper. You have ten minutes at the end of the test to copy your answers on to the seperate answer sheet.

3 – Spelling counts
Spelling is really important fot IELTS LISTENING for a few reasons .
When you transfering your answers over in the last part of the test when you have time at the end to transfer your answers over make sure your spelling is 100% spot on because if you get even one letter or two place it is wrong. It doesn’t matter if it is very close or it’s just two letters the wrong way it’s going to be wrong .you should be very harsh when you’re practising.
When you are practising you’re going to have to give yourself a score by checking your answers often when people check those answers if the spelling little off they ‘ll give them a mark they will ticket and they will give himself that correct answer. You need to be realistic. You need to know your real score before you do the test.
Record your mistakes. Get yourself a notebook just to record your mistakes and correct them.
4- It is not just a listening test
It is also a reading test, a thinking test, a spelling test , a grammar test and a vocabulary test. Reading and thinking are very important. What happens when you lose focus and you don’t read the questions , you don’t think about what the answer might be and then the listening track starts and you get lost and you get panicked and everything is just snowballs.
You should read the questions before the recording starts .
You should be thinking about the questions
You should be thinking about he what the answers might be.
If your vocabulary is not good enough , forget about band 8 because band 8 means you’re just below a native speaker.
