IELTS Listening – Section 2

Section 2 asks students to listen to one person talking about an everyday situation, such as describing a map or what a course will be about. Students are asked to fill in answers related to this monologue. Unlike in Section 1, Section 2 may include information designed to confuse – such as giving two numbers from which the students have to understand which is the correct answer.

– 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 2 will last around 6-7 minutes and usually contains 8-10 questions.
