I'm confused between A and B to be honest. But, I suppose "... becoming an essential component of kitchens" does not have the same meaning as "the smart fridge is an an essential component of kitchens". (it is becoming an essential ... but not yet..)

Thank you for your effort simon!!

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

B
C
D

Note:
"A" is wrong: the company (LG) hope that the fridge will become an essential component of kitchens, but that doesn't mean it IS an essential component now.

"E" is wrong: the fridge doesn't make the decisions. It helps the user to make them.

"F" is wrong: it suggests healthy recipes using the food inside, but it doesn't tell you which foods are healthier.

Hi DNN,

"South Korea's LG Electronics is banking on..."

Hi Deng,

You just need to keep practising. Try doing all of my listening lessons here on the site.

helo simon, wishing you with great regard
i am new to you site,i like it and want to do daily practice on it till my exam,my exam date is on 30th of june,i just want to dconfirm from where can i get the whole listening,reading topics from your site... moreover, i want some tips or suggestion regarding ielts score means how i control on my nervousness at exam time... i am very stressed about it..
i feel pleased if you reply, and thank allot
with regards
mandeep

Hi Mandeep,

If you're asking for the entire bank of possible topics on the IELTS, I don't think Simon has such a list. I don't think examiners make the questions.

If you want tips, this entire site is full of those! Check the links on the left side of this page.

The most effective measure against nervousness is developing your skill through practice. There are a lot of helpful relaxation techniques but they fall beyond the scope of this site.

my answer is c,d and f

Hi Mandeep,

I'm glad you like the site. Jean-Luc has answered your question perfectly (just below your comment).

Hi Simon,
In listening section, which usually bothers me is hyphens. Sometimes I don't know whether or not a word is built with hyphens. Do I lose my mark because of missing them.
Can you help me to figure out that!
Thank you Simon.

BCF, were my answers. You're right Simon, we're all need to have a more practice! Thx to your site for this opportunity!

Hi Truc,

Don't worry about hyphens. You won't lose marks because of that.

Hi simon
my answer is A B and E

Hi Simon,

Can you post the transcript with each listening task?

I think we can figure out the right answers easier as well as learn the new expression.

Many thanks,

Hi Simon,
Thanks a lot for putting all these tips and practice tests for students. This is really very helpful. I appreciate you doing it.

Next, i heard this smart fridge listening and i am pretty sure that they don't mention that company "HOPES" that fridge will become essential, they simply say " LG electronics is banking on its new smart fridge, becoming an essential component of kitchens around the word" it does not mention anything about "HOPE" so why option A is not true.
Please explain as i can't figure it out on my own.
Thanks

Hi Varun,

The expression 'banking on something' means that you are hoping for it.
