IELTS Listening Samples
The Listening test takes around 30 minutes. There are 40 questions. There are four sections. The Listening test is recorded on a CD and is played ONCE only. During the test, time is given for candidates to read the questions and write down and check their answers. Answers are written on the Question Paper as candidates listen. When the recording ends, 10 minutes are allowed for candidates to transfer their answers to an Answer Sheet.
A range of English accents are used in the recordings, which reflects the international usage of IELTS.
