In the IELTS listening section, the recording is played once only. You must, therefore, use a number of strategies to help you listen closely. You will need four main skills to do well in the IELTS Listening section. These are:

1. Understanding the instruction

Instruction are both written on the question paper and spoken on the audio recording. Read and listen to every word in the instruction very carefully. Ensure that you follow them exactly and answer in the correct way.

2. Previewing and Predicting 

An announcer will briefly outline:
- the topic                 - who is talking                       - the situation
Try to listen carefully  as this will help you to preview the question.
Before the recording begins for each section, you will be given up to 30 seconds to read and become familiar with the question. Use this time efficiently so that you can prepare yourself to listen the information you  need.
Here are some hints for previewing and predicting.
  •  Study the question carefully and try to predict what type of answer is required. For example, Will it be s date, a name or maybe a number?
  • Check the differences between similar-looking pictures or diagram.
  • Look for minor details such us different numbers or omissions.
In addition the 30 seconds before each section, you will also be given 30 seconds after each section to look over your answer. if you are satisfied with your answers in the section you have just finished, move on to the next section and use the full 60 seconds for previewing.

3. Listening for specific information

Use of previewing and predicting skills will help you listen for the specific information you need to answer the question in the listening section. Listening for the keywords and common connective words often helps to signal the specific information that you need in order to answer the question. Make sure that while you are actually writing your answers, you continue to listen to the information given in the recording as there will not be a second opportunity to hear it.

4. Checking and Rewriting.

You are given about 30 seconds after each section to check you answers. Check that all your answers correspond with the given instruction.
Make sure that you have answered every question. Marks are not deducted for incorrect answer so, if you are unsure of a particular answer, you should guess by writing down what you think is the most likely answer.
Check that you have included only what is necessary in the answer.
At the end of the listening section, you are given about 10 minutes to transfer your answers from the question paper onto the answer sheet. Scan your answers to ensure that you have transferred the correctly, so that the number on the question paper corresponds with the number on the answer sheet. Be especially careful when transferring answers from tables as sometimes the items are not ordered li-early.

Contoh Soal dan Jawaban IELTS General Writing Task 1


You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write at least 150 words. You do NOT need to write any addresses. Begin your letter as follows:


You have been offered a job that will require you to move to a city that you have never visited before. You have an acquaintance who lives there.

Write a letter to the acquaintance. In your letter
  • explain your situation
  • say why you feel unsure about living in the city
  • ask some questions about life in the city


Dear Susilo,

     I am writing to ask you for some information that will help me make a decision. I have recently been offered a job in Bogor. I am very much interested in the job, but as you know, I have never even visited Surabaya. I am not sure whether I would like living there. Since you have lived there for a while, I thought you could answer some questions for me.

     One thing, I am worried about the is the weather. I have heard that it rains in Bogor all the time. Is this true? It sounds very depressing. I have also heard that Bogor is a growing city, and I am afraid it would feel very crowded to me. I have never lived in a city before. Another thing I wonder about is leisure activities. I like going out fishing a lot. Are there good places to go fishing in Bogor? What about badminton court? I would not want to live in a place where I could not go to play badminton frequently.

     Another important issue is housing. I have heard that Bogor is very expensive. Is it hard to find a nice housing at a reasonable rent. What neighborhoods would you recommend?

     I appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions, and I look forward to hearing from you. If I decide to accept the job in Bogor, then I hope we will be able to get together frequently.

Best wishes,
