About this subject

  • In the IELTS Listening subject you will learn about:

    1. the format of the listening test
    2. understanding the instructions you hear in the test
    3. the types of questions you will read in the test and what they require you to do
    4. the listening strategies and skills you need to help you locate the answers.

    You can also complete a practice listening test. This is recommended but not compulsory. Because this unit is a non-award subject, there will be no compulsory assignments to be submitted and no final exam.
