IELTS LISTENING SECTION

Listening section in the IELTS exam can sometimes become challenging because it is the one with the most non-conventional format. There are many reasons why this module becomes very cahallenging. They are:

1. Multitasking :
You are at one time listening to the audio, reading the questions and writing the answers all at the same time.The different faculties within you that need to be in unison are your mind,your ears,your eyes and your hands.This fact could make this module challenging.

2. Risk of Losing track :
Anyone who has taken the test will tell you that even if your focus gets diverted for a few seconds you could lose complete track of the audio track.

3. It’s a rapid exercise :
You will realise that questions follow each other very closely; this mens that speed needs to be maintained along with concentration.

4. Strict time management :
You get 30 minutes for the complete test and then 10 additional minutes to transfer your answers to an answer sheet. If you are prepared well, this is good amount of time else, it’s a big challenge.

5. Hit or miss :
You are allowed to listen to the audio clip “only once” . Hence, this makes it a little difficult as you have to be equally alert all through the alloted 40 minutes as there is no second chance available.

6. Concentration :
It’s quite a task to keep your brain glued to one exercise for as long as 40 minutes at a stretch with no possibility to relax.

However, a little practice and guidance can help you crack this section easily. You just need to have the right kind of practice. A competent trainer would be an invaluable asset,however,the following tips can be of great help:

1. Read before listening :
This will help you to know what you are listening for. This will also help you to avoid wasting time as you will be practicing “focussed listening” rather than “random listening”.

2. Avoid selective listening and selective reading :
Try and listen to each and every word of the audio clip carefully and read the entire question before answering. Most of the mistakes are caused because students start answering without reading the full questions due to lack of time and speed of speech in the audio clip.

3. Be spontaneous :
Do not leave the writing part till the end. This is the most popular mistake. Students think that they should listen to the complete clip and they feel that it’s in the end that they should attempt the questions since they will remember everything. This is not true. There is lot of information and moreover you are stressed .It’s easy to lose track of what you were listening to. You need to rememeber that there isconsiderable risk involved in leaving the answering part to the end. Though some students apply this approach but it is not suggested. You need to write, read and listen all at the same time. This is how this section is formulated.

4. Practice shorthand :
Practicing shorthand can be an added advantage because You don’t have to write everything. You would however, want to write the names, dates and figures very carefully.

5. Spell check :
It is very important that you get the spellings right because in part 1, you are required to spell names and figures in the answers.
