IELTS Listening

IELTS Reading
Duration and Format of IELTS Listening Task:

The Listening Module takes around 30 minutes. There are 40 questions. There are four sections. The Listening Module is recorded on a tape and is played ONCE only. During the test, time is given for candidates to read the questions and write down and check their answers. Answers are written on the Question Paper as candidates listen. When the tape ends ten minutes are allowed for candidates to transfer their answers to an Answer Sheet.

IELTS Listening Task Types:

The first two sections are concerned with social needs. There is a conversation between two speakers and then a monologue. For example - a conversation about travel arrangements or decisions on a night out, and a speech about student services on a University campus or arrangements for meals during a conference. 

The final two sections are concerned with situations related more closely to educational or training contexts. There is a conversation between up to four people and then a further monologue. For example - a conversation between a tutor and a student about an assignment or between three students planning a research project, and a lecture or talk of general academic interest. 

A range of English accents and dialects are used in the recordings which reflects the international usage of IELTS. A variety of questions are used, chosen from the following types: 

• Multiple choice

• Short-answer questions

• Sentence completion

• Notes/summary/diagram/flow • chart/table completion

• Labeling a diagram which has numbered parts

• Classification

• Matching

IELTS Listening Marking and Assessment:

One mark is awarded for each correct answer in the 40 item test. A Band Score conversion table is produced for each version of the Listening Module which translates scores out of 40 into the IELTS 9-band scale. Scores are reported as a whole band or a half band. Care should be taken when writing answers on the Answer Sheet as poor spelling and grammar are penalized.
