IELTS Listening Test Part 4 Practice

This IELTS listening test part 4 practice provides you with the chance to improve your skills for the final section of the test.

Section 4 is the most difficult part of the listening test.

It will be a talk or lecture by one person and unlike the other sections of the listening test, there is no break in the middle.

You therefore need to concentrate very carefully to score some points in this part.

Below are some IELTS listening tips to help you in the test.

TIPS:

  • Highlight key words such as names or places in the question stems to listen out for during the reading
  • For tables with dates (e.g. questions 35-40) listen carefully for the years in the 'period' so you can keep track of where the lecture is
  • Have your eye on two questions at the same time - if you miss one, this may prevent you getting lost as you will hear the next one
  • Don't worry about spelling / grammar as you answer - you can correct this as you transfer you answers at the end of the test
  • Read the instructions carefully and don't write more words than instructed - 'No more than two words' means it could be one or two words.
  • At the end, check that what you have written fits in the space grammatically
