IELTS Listening Tip

No answer in the IELTS Listening test is more than three words. Sixty percent of the answers are just one word. There are usually only three or four three-word answers in any test. (Look at the proportion of answer types in the Practice Tests.) Occasionally, two letters are needed for one answer.

Listening questions are all in order. That is, the answer to question 1 comes on the recording before the answer to question 2. Often answers are repeated. Questions become more difficult as the test progresses.

Questions 19 and 20

Complete the questions below.

Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER for each answer.

19  How long is the tunnel? ....................
