Plus you’ll get the single biggest mistake you could be making on the IELTS Listening Exam.

Here are the questions from our listeners that we’ll answer on today’s episode:

Question #1: On the Listening test if you write a noun in singular and the real answer is plural does it make the answer wrong?

Answer #1: Yes it’s wrong. You need to be careful with this. Spelling also needs to be 100% correct or it’s wrong. Focus on reading more to improve your spelling.


Question #2:What should I do with multiple choice questions?

Answer #2: In the multiple choice questions you look at the question before you listen and you underline key words. You listen for the key words because the answers are always next to the key words. Before you listen you also need to read the possible answers. You also need to eliminate wrong answers.


Question #3: How do I handle map discussion questions?

Answer #3: You need to look at the picture and describe it in your head before you listen.
