This means using valid IELTS practice tests, such as those in the Cambridge series, or in an IELTS course.

  • Work backwards in the first two practice tests. Use the tapescripts to see how the answers are given, and what kind of parallel expressions are used for the key words.
    • Notice that IELTS uses tricks like putting negative words around possible answers, distracting you from the correct answer.
  • Now you are ready to begin your IELTS Listening practice in earnest. Practice makes perfect!

How confident do you feel in your listening?
