Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's lesson, I am going to teach you my top tips for the
IELTS listening module. Okay?
So, before I teach you these tips, you might be wondering: "What's the IELTS listening
module?" Well, the IELTS is a test and one part of the test is listening. So, in the
listening section, you're going to have 40 questions where you're going to listen to
some conversations for about 30 minutes, and then you'll have 10 minutes to transfer your
answers over to another sheet. So, in total, it's 40 minutes; 30 minutes for listening,
10 minutes for writing down your answers.
Okay, now this part of the IELTS is very possible to get a high mark, especially if you follow
my tips. All right? Now, before we get started, I just want to let you know: I know you can
do the IELTS. I know you can pass, I know you can get a great mark, a great bandwidth
- you just have to have confidence in yourself and you have to practice. Practice, practice,
practice; it really pays off. So let's get started.
So, my first tip: write no more than three words. What do I mean by this? I don't mean
for the whole thing, write no more than three words. On the IELTS, you will have to read
the instruction of what to do. Often times, the instruction, before you listen, you're
going to see: "Write no more than three words." This is an example of an instruction you must
follow. One mistake a lot of students make during the IELTS is they don't read instructions
properly. They're nervous, they're stressed out, they write whatever, they don't... They
don't follow the instructions. If you see something like: "Write no more than three
words." Do that. You can't write four, don't write five. Write three or less. Okay? So
my main point here: follow the instructions carefully.
Point number two: get used to British English. A large part of the IELTS, you will be listening...
For... For... Sorry, for the listening, you will be listening to British accents. Sometimes
you might hear Australian accents or Canadian, you might hear a range, but a lot of the accents
will be British. So it's very important to get used to listening to British accents.
