How to learn to multitask for IELTS listening?
IELTS listening section has 40 questions about four recordings, and you have 30 minutes to answer them. The first recording is a conversation between 2 or more people about a social subject. The second has the same context but in a monologue format. The other two have academic subjects in the same formats. The question types are varied from multiple choice to matching, labelling, and text completion.
The answer sheet is divided into headings that can help you pinpoint the text relevant to the recording.
