Listening Skills for IELTS: Notes/Table Completion
23 Oct 2014 admin
In this specific task of the listening section, your ability to predict information that could be used to complete notes and tables will be tested.
When you have to complete notes and tables:
• Read each question carefully and predict what kind of word or phrase you will need (e.g. number, name).
• Remember that when listening for numbers, you should be quick to decide whether to include the unit of measurement or abbreviation (e.g. km, cm, years).
• You should write what you hear as your answer. Never change the word, phrase or number you hear to try to make it fit
• The information you will hear will be said in the same order as the questions. You can use this to predict whether you should read across or down the table to answer the questions.
