IELTS Listening - Section 4

IELTS Listening Section 4

Section four, which is also concerned with educational and training context, will feature a monologue, for example, a lecture or talk of general, non-specialist academic interest. Some typical question types found in this section are matching, classification and multiple choice. As there is no break during this section, you must look through all the questions in the time given at the beginning. It is also especially important to listen for words signalling a change from one part of the lecture to another. The following are examples of monologues you may hear in section four:

1) A lecture on the radio about a health problem
2) A university lecture about eclipse
3) A monologue on how to breed animals
4) A lecture about Neolithic Britain
