IELTS Listening – Section 1

In Section 1, students listen to a conversation between two people. The topic is a common situation, and students are asked to fill in basic details such as names, addresses and phone numbers from the conversation.

– The recording is played only once.
– Students are encouraged to make notes while they listen. This means they can think about answers later and not miss any information.
– Note that before listening students are given some time to look at the questions. Students should use this time to understand what answers they are listening for.
– When the recording is finished, students are also given a short time to write their answers. This is when notes to think about difficult questions are useful.
– The entire listening test, of 4 sections, lasts 40 minutes (30 minutes of recordings, and 10 minutes for writing answers) and has 40 questions. Section 1 will last around 5 minutes and usually contains 8-10 questions.
