Dear Simon,
I need some advice for listening test.
WHAT IS THE EFFECTIVE METHOD IN THE TIMES GIVEN DURING THE LISTENING TEST?
Of course you suggest to underline the keywords before starting the recording. It is difficult underling all keywords in multiple choice, for each question and its four answers!approximately we will be given 4 or 5 questions accompany with 4 choice. So, we have 25 half-lines to look and find keywords. all must be done in approximately 40 seconds!

The next struggling part is to pair up information, which one set is illustrated in a box. what is the profitable strategy in this part?
I cannot manage these parts well.

I would be grateful if you give me some advice.
Best

Regarding my questions, two comment above, although I am highly interested to hear from Simon, your experiments are valuable.

Hi guys,

I guess my answers are the same as most of guys... But I heard all of them from the first time, because I'm regularly doing listening, just listening to the radio...

3. food deprivation

Strange, I got it correct the first time =(((
I think it's actually quite common, for example they kinda talk like this on BBC and CNN (especially on finance and economy - those people seems to have a tendency to speak very very quickly )

Hello Simon,

It's good idea you come with Eminem ( famous fast rapper) next time to challenge us more (lol).

Hi Simon,
I have a question concerning the spelling mistakes,
If i wrote deprevation instead of deprivation
And consenses instead of consensus
Would it be considered wrong and i lose the question score??

Thank you in advance.

Hi Soha,

In the listening test, a spelling mistake usually means that your answer is marked wrong.

The good news is that you learnt two new correct spellings from this lesson!

hey simon
i want your help....as i am from pakistan so i am not a english native speaker. and i am appearing for ielts on this coming 8th of october from AEO. this will be my second attempt. previously i got
R: 5.0
L: 5.5
W: 6.0
S: 6.5, Overall: 6.0
but this time i need minimum 7 each in every module as per my visa requirement.
so i just want to ask u that in this almost in 1 week will i get my desired bands with the help of ur website?

I know where it is from. Haha, This guy is unique, interesting and impressive. SciShow from YouTube. I tried several times and I feel ok with the speed. However, the precondition is that I am familiar with the topic before I start to listen.

I wonder why they use the average person instead of an average person?

Please help me on whatsapp
