Test Objective: Assessors will be looking for evidence of your ability to understand the main ideas and detailed factual information, the opinions and attitudes of speakers, the purpose of an utterance and evidence of your ability to follow the development of ideas.
Test Duration: 30 Minutes
Task: You will listen to four recordings of native English speakers and then write your answers to a series of questions.
Recording 1: A conversation between two people set in an everyday social context. e.g. a conversation in an accommodation agency, and answer questions on your comprehension.
Preparation Tip: Understand the objective of the test and nothing else. Practice listening to more and more with the objective in mind to answer multiple choice questions, label a plan, map or diagram, fill in a form, complete a table, complete a flow-chart, give short answers. Read the questions before listening to the recording, as the same will help to flag the answers while you listen.
Recording 2: A monologue set in an everyday social context, e.g. a speech about local facilities.
Preparation Tip: Follow the opinions and attitudes of speakers, Try to listen for key words or synonyms (words that have the same or nearly the same meaning as another word) from the question to help you identify the answer. As you are listening to the recording, cross out options which don’t fit. This makes it easier for you to find the right answer.
Recording 3: a conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context, e.g. a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment.
Preparation Tip: Listen carefully for words which indicate which stage of the recording you are listening to, e.g. ‘firstly’, ‘my next point’, ‘to sum up’. These words will help you identify which question you have reached. Recognize the purpose of an utterance in the discussion and delivery of the speaker. You may be asked to write down words that have been spelled out in the recording. In order to do this well, you need to know the English alphabet and how each letter is pronounced (for example, the letter ‘W’ is pronounced as ‘double-u’).
Recording 4: A monologue on an academic subject, e.g. a university lecture.
Preparation Tip: Follow the delivery of speech and the ideology of the content developed. As you are listening to the recording, be careful to note word limits. If you are writing dates as an answer to any question remember that there are several correct ways to write them (e.g. 24th April, April 24 and 24 April are all correct). Make your practice notes in listening papers for the monologue basis the questions you read before listening to the 4th recording and transfer answers to the final sheet.
If there are questions you cannot answer leave them and move on to the next question. This will help you to stay calm and positive. Go back to those questions at the end, if you have time.
After the last recording has ended you have ten minutes to transfer your answers from the Listening booklet to your answer sheet. Don’t make the mistake of copying these answers across to the answer sheet in between sections or you may miss important information about the next section of the test. Wait until the end of Section 4 before transferring your answers.
