How to Tackle IELTS Listening Map Questions

1. Before you listen

Remember that all answers are in order on the Listening

So, before you listen, pay attention to where each question is, circle
the question, and describe the
location in your head.

2. Know the vocabulary

This is part
of our 3 Keys prediction strategy
, which has helped many students get 9’s on Listening!

You can’t describe the locations unless you know the vocabulary! Nor
can you understand the speaker when
he or she is describing the diagram.

You should make a list of location words, like: northeast,
southwest, bottom corner, kitty corner, across, diagonal, directly behind,

To get more native vocabulary like this, visit a tourist spot where you live, and get a brochure with a map in English.
