Listening is a skill, not a gift

Listening is a skill, not a gift

Often Listening can be your biggest problem.Your Listening ability in many cases is not developed enough. But the good news is that Listening is a skill, not a gift, which means anyone can learn how to listen and understand.

When training, take a recording of the news, a lecture, a television program, a movie or an actual IELTS Listening test and work with it.

Listening Tip # 1 – use a transcript.

Listening Tip # 2 – repeat phrases.

Don’t Let Them Distract You

DON’T let them distract you!!!!!!!…….

In the Listening section of IELTS the recording uses several different voices – of younger and older people, men and women.

You may also hear different accents – Australian, British, American, Japanese, etc. The background noise is also different. It can be of an airport, a cafe-shop, a street, a University lecture hall, you name it.

Be ready for it and don’t let it distract you – because that is exactly what they want.

Ignore the noises and listen for the answers.

SPELLING IN IELTS

SPELLING IN IELTS : BRITISH OR ENGLISH

Not everyone knows that there is a British and an American way of spelling words, and they are different. The question about the acceptable spelling came up a lot lately and I found out that many students are unsure how to spell words in the IELTS Listening, Reading and Writing tests – the British or the American way.

If you ask someone from the USA and someone from the UK to spell a word such as color, the American will spell “color” and the person from the UK will spell “colour”.

As to the question, what is the right way to spell words in IELTS, the American or the British, the answer is both. You can use either form and it will be accepted, no penalties.
