IELTS Listening Tips from a Band 9 Candidate
by Sarah Peo
(Townsville, QLD, Australia)
I took my last IELTS exam on January 31, 2015. I was happy to get a 9 in listening. I would like to share a few tips to those who are to write their exam as I come from a non English speaking country.
1. When you prepare for the exam, just prepare by reading through articles, hearing news online and in television, see movies in English and not with English subtitles.
2. Try taking a test per day or per 3 days, as per your convenience. Just take it regularly.
3. Above all, the most important tip is to be confident when you sit in the exam. Do not think you will miss something, be positive minded and read through your questions in advance before hearing.
If I can get it, you can get it too.
All the best!!!
NEVER. LOSE. CONCENTRATION.
For the Listening test you strictly have to remember these 3 words: NEVER. LOSE. CONCENTRATION.
During the Listening test don't you ever think about nothing but the Listening test.
And if you are not able to understand one part of the listening just leave it and keep listening, focus on the next questions because if you focus on one part of the listening you will miss the rest of it. 100%
