Here are 2 tricky questions that often cause problems in the IELTS listening test:
1. The speaker says: "nearly everyone liked the conference".
Which answer is correct?
A) Everyone like the conference
B) Most people liked the conference
The correct answer is B, but many students put A because they hear the word "everyone".
2. The speaker says: "early afternoon".
If there is a gap-fill question, you must write "early afternoon". If you write "afternoon", your answer will be marked wrong.
