  • Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's lesson, I am going to tell you about the IELTS test

  • -- specifically the listening module. Okay? I'm going to tell you exactly what happens

  • in the listening module of the IELTS. All right?

  • Now, it's very important to know what will happen because if you know what's going to

  • happen, you will feel less nervous, and you will do better on the exam. So let's get started.

  • The first part of the IELTS, of the whole test, is the listening. So on test day, you

  • will go in; you'll be all ready, ready to go. And I know you're going to do well. And

  • the very first section is the listening, okay? Followed by the reading and then the writing.

  • So listening first.

  • The listening section is 30 minutes of four sections, plus 10 minutes to transfer your

  • answers from one sheet of paper to another sheet of paper. So in total, 40 minutes.

  • Now, the IELTS test has two different streams. Some people do the academic; some people do

  • the general. Usually, for immigration, you might do the general. For university or college

  • -- if you want to go to university or college in Canada or England, you would do the academic.

  • Now, the thing is that for the general and the academic, the listening is the same. So

  • you're going to be doing the same test whether it's academic or general, same listening.

  • Now, this is also important. This is actually, maybe, a very key point. One of the difficulties

  • of doing the listening of the IELTS is the tape is only played one time. Okay? You will

  • only listen to it once. Now, a lot of the times in English class, you get to re-listen

  • to something, maybe two or three times. In this test, one time. So you've really got

  • to listen carefully because you will only hear it once.

  • You also will have extra time at the end of each section to check your answers and to

  • look ahead to the next set of questions. Very important to do this.

  • All right. So how many sections are in listening? There is a total of four sections. Each section

  • has ten questions, okay? For a total of 40 questions. Now, one thing to know is that

  • the questions usually start out easier, and then as the test goes on, and the listening

  • goes on, it gets harder and harder. So the first part is the easiest, and then it gets

  • a little bit more difficult, more difficult, more difficult. But it's all possible. You can do it.

  • All right. Let me tell you about Section 1. The first section of the listening module,

  • you'll be listening to two speakers having either a conversation or, maybe, some sort

  • of transaction. Maybe somebody is buying something. So either a conversation or a transaction.

  • And this tests you on survival English. So it's basic English. English such as numbers,

  • names -- so it's the survival English part. Okay?

  • Section 2 is a little more difficult than Section 1. There's going to be one speaker

  • talking. Now, what are they going to be talking about? They'll talk about some sort of general

  • topic, not academic, something very general. And again, it's going to be something that

  • you would probably hear if you lived in Canada or if you lived in England, all right?

  • The third section, you're going to be hearing anywhere from two speakers, three speakers,

  • or four speakers. What are they going to be talking about? They're going to be having

  • a conversation in an academic situation. This is where it gets a little bit more challenging

  • because it's easier to listen to one speaker or two speakers than four speakers. Okay?

  • It's very important that at this point, to be able to know who -- to recognize each person's

  • voice. Okay? How many individuals and what is each person saying.

  • Section 4 is just one speaker. It might be a professor, and they are talking -- giving

  • an academic lecture. Okay? They might be talking about Einstein's life or the life of a mole.

  • Okay? So it's a scientific or academic lecture.

  • So these two, survival English; these two, academic English, okay?

  • Another important thing to know about the IELTS is it's testing you on British English.

  • So as a result, practice listening to British speakers, Canadian speakers too, Australian

  • -- it's not testing you on American English, but British English. So you will hear mainly

  • British accents. You might hear some Australian accents, New Zealand accents, Canada accents,

  • but mainly British accents. All right?

  • So I know you are going to do well on this test. It's all about knowing you're going

  • to do well. You've got to tell yourself, "I can do it." And you can. So I would like you

  • to come visit our website at There, we have a quiz, so you can practice

  • to make sure you really understand what's going to happen exam day. And we have more

  • videos on the IELTS. Also, another good website to check out is There,

  • you will find a lot of information on the IELTS. All right? So until next time, good luck, and take care.
