Listening is the easiest part of the IELTS exam because you do not need to find out any answer because all answer is told by listening clip. I think nothing is easily more than the listening part. it required only your attention and nothing else. There is no test like listening which give you answers along with questions. it examines only your understanding level of the English language how much you able to understand the English language. You can hear only one time. Total time for the listening module is 40 minutes, 10 minutes provided for students to write the answer into the answer sheet which is included in 40 minutes.
Listening Clip has Four Sections
SECTION 1: This first section is the one-word answer section. There is a conversation between two speakers on any topic. However, this section is mostly related to the customer and any service center. The first section always looks like a customer form in which you have to write the data of customer by listening to their conversation carefully for instance, name, mobile no, address, postcode, etc.
SECTION 2: The second section of listening is monologue which means speech by a single person. It is set about social context such as speech about student services in the campus. The type of questions would be blanks as well as multiple choice question.
SECTION 3: The third part of the listening module is a conversation among up to four people mostly in the planning of collage topic and projects even assignments. it is also multiple choice questions and match the features and comments.
SECTION 4: The last part of the listening test is another monologue.it is related to any lecture and descriptions on the general topic of science and history.
